2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLS Rwd 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I have owned my 2004 Sports Trac for
about 5 month. Have taken two medium
length trips and found it to be
comfortable and it handles well. Easy
to get around in heavy traffic. My wife
loves to drive it.Our grand children
love it. Gas milage is good but it
could be improved. I have no major
complaints.It is fun to drive.


Best Features

Electric back window, storage compartment behind rear seats, the 4 individual map lights are a plus


Worst Features

Gas milage needs some improvement

2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT Premium Rwd 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The Sport Trac is a fantastic family
vacation vehicle. Going to the beach in
it is the best. No more sand in the
carpet and no fishy smell inside the
vehicle. Carry the family, boogie
boards and fishing rods without any
problems. It also has been great towing
a large pop-up camper. You hardly ever
know that it is behind you. The gas
mileage towing the camper was 16.4. I
felt this was exceptionally good
considering we had the truck and the
camper loaded up. I highly recommend
anyone looking for a new family vehicle
to look at the Sport Trac.


Best Features

Truck bed, ability to carry 5 passengers comfortably, Pioneer 290 watt stereo system, ride, smoothness of motor and quiet ride, sunroof and heated leather seats, sliding rear window


Worst Features

Improve the gas mileage. While it is acceptable, it could be better.

2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT Rwd 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Excellent truck... getting 17-19 MPG
keeping the foot out of it -- great for
a truck/SUV. Ample torque off the line
for merging, but fades a bitabove 50
mph. Interior is comfy, big and handy,
but lacks basics like compass/outside
temp gauge found std on cars costing
half as much. Power mirrors and cruise
not enough to justify the $1.5K extra
for XLT package - should've bought XLS
and had those added for about half
that. Zero reliability issues in first
3k miles - fun to drive, but a bit
bumpy.


Best Features

One-touch rear window, scratchproof bed, power/mileage balance (for an SUV/truck), styling, standard ABS, 12V plug in bed, fits in garage easily.


Worst Features

Value for money - lack of basic equipment like trip computer, compass, temp gauge and power items on a $26K truck. Daytime lights.
