Like the Truck, Hate the Service Support

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


I bought the truck for the functionality - to transport my family and cargo at the same time. I chose it over the Dakota because it drove like a car - which it is. This vehicle is not as durable as a truck and should not be treated as such. But for a suburbanite, I like it a lot. It has things break on it a lot and I am thankful for the warranty. Too bad the dealership is so unsupportive. I see it as a great alternative to a wagon but not to a pick up truck. Treat it gently and it will perform well. Great speed but poor mileage (18 - 20 mpg).

Best Features

Four seats and half a bed on a quick vehicle. Small for downtown and narrow roads. Fast for expressway and highway driving. The tonnau cover, bed pad, and bed divider are great.

Worst Features

Make it more durable. It is not for off-road or dirt road use. Do a better quality control for interior parts. FIND A WAY to increase fuel economy.
