Great little truck
By SnowBeast on


2002 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Premium 2WD 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Bought new with less than 100 miles after my 94 ranger was totalled by a kid running a light. This truck is a beast in the snow. Winter 06' brought 2 major blizzards here with over 2ft of snow each time within 2 weeks. Had to blast through drifts over 4 ft to get to work. No problem at all. That is even with the crap stock goodyear RT/S tires. Tires started "thumping at 10k. Had to replace pads and rotors at 30k. Repair shop said a caliper was frozen on the right front and chewed throught the rotor. Replaced rotors, pads and calipers over $700. Now the breaks constantly squeak. Besides that have not had any mechanical issues what so ever "knock on wood"

Best Features

Audiophile stereo rocks, tows good, very versatile, interior is stylish (grey leather) deep snow is no match in 4WD. Even better with meatier tires.

Worst Features

Better brakes, wish it was flex fuel capable, mpg, better tires stock. Vibration possibly from cupped tires under braking. (brakes checked fine)
