2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT 4WD 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
I love this truck. It is perfect for
all I need it to do. Not too big and
bulky, as the gas sucking testosterone
laden trucks out there. It carries my
family and I comfortably, all 5 of us.
My family and I enjoy it's versitility.
We use it for fishing and camping
trips, the shorter, smaller bed being
just the right fit for us. This is a
great compact truck.
It's easy transition from on road to

Cost me about $16995 plus tax with all
the rebates and discounts. Great
vehicle for the money. Would have
loved better fuel economy -- but it's a
SUV so what do you expect. Very
practical for around the home -- 5 pass
and a pick up bed with a cover -- cool
5 Pass and pick up bed -- plus a power

I like it overall, improvement over my
95 F150. Solid, no rattles.
leather interior, sliding back glass,
decent gas mileage.
Tilt steering wheel lever too low hits
knees on an average size person. Should
come equipped with a trailor hitch.
engine bay crowded for a 6 cylinder.
Rear view mirror creates a big blind
spot. Door automatic locks anoying.

This truck does it all! Looks great,
interior is fine for carting around 5
adults, and the plastic bed means you
need not worry about scratching up your
paint. Mileage in the 18-20 mpg rane
(mixed driving) is achievable if you
keep your foot out of it -- tops in its
class. Recently got 23 mpg on a trip
to Alabama (interstate, 70 mph). 4.0
V6 is powerful enough to pull this 2+
ton truck, and get you in and out of
traffic smartly. Base CD player is
adequate... but Pioneer system for $200
more would have been better. A
comfortable compromise between
commuter vehicle, SUV, yet can function
as a truck when you need it, which fits
in a garage.
Power 3-position back window, bed
extender cage (a must-have option),
decent mileage for a truck, roomy
interior, rubber floor for cleaning.
Cheesy 'go anywhere' console bag and
lack of compass/temp mirror on base
models are proof that Ford really
cheaped out on these; Daytime lights,
or auto on/off lights should be
standard for this price range.
Suspension is a little rough over RR
tracks, but hey... it's a truck.
