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


Review

Ok truck, but a bit small. I'd be a lot happier if the bed were a foot longer. It drives well enough on the freeway, but leans and lurches about on the twisty stuff. Also, beware the W-I-D-E turning radius which means it's not very nimble in parking lots and garages. The stock seats are comfortable. This is a good thing because they have only basic adjustments. The OHC engine performs quite well compared to my old anemic '94 model. Gas mileage is appalling, however, yielding a solid 14.5mpg in pure suburban driving and topping out at 21 for 100% interstate trips. For the gas it burns, I think I'd better off with a full sized truck.


Best Features

The hinged, locking hard bed cover. Opening rear window. Comfortable driving position. Simple interior trim: no carpet! (No mud, smells, etc.). Acceptable power.


Worst Features

Make the bed one foot longer! Better handling. Better fuel economy.

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


Review

The SporTrac is a pleasure to drive. Literally drives like a car, but still can haul with the bed. However, steering is a bit wobbly, meaning, not as tight as in my old '99 Ford Ranger. Love the increased horsepower and 5 speed auto transmission. Sometimes you really have to put the pedal to the metal in order to shift into a higher gear. Other than the above, I would buy another one


Best Features

Power rear window. Interior lights stay on until out of car.


Worst Features

Tighten up the steering.

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


Review

I AM VERY SATISFIED WITH MY SPORT TRAC.
IT IS THE PERFECT TRUCK FOR A FEMALE.


Best Features

I LIKE THE INTERIOR,(THE FLOORING AND THE DESIGN) IT IS DIFFERENT FROM ANY OTHER VEHICLE I HAVE LOOKED AT. WHEN LOOKING AT CARS THE INTERIOR DASH AND CONSOLE DESIGN IS VERY IMPORTANT , I DO NOT LIKE CHEAP LOOKING INTERIOR CONSOLES.


Worst Features

I WOULD SUGGEST SELLING SOME SPORT TRACS WITH MORE AFTERMARKET FEATURES LIKE THE F150'S ARE SOLD. I FEEL THAT THEY WOULD SELL.

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
