Bitter Sweet Experience

Vehicle2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLS Rwd 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
ReviewEnjoyed this vehicle greatly for the first 63,000 miles. Then started having trouble with keeping it balanced. Had tires balanced numerous times, also aligned, purchased new set of OEM tires (old set still had many miles left on them at 65,000 miles), purchased one new rim that might have been bent in a pot hole in Danville, IL. Still the ride is not as good as before the tire rotation that started what I feel is a vibration problem. Don't know what causes this slight vibration, whether it's the vehicle or just transmitting road imperfections. Considering trading for a 2007.
Best FeaturesFavorite featured is the open bed that allows me to carry the house garbage with me every Sundays from Cincinnati to IL since you can't leave it by the curb for Wednesday pickup. Love the high driving position, great visibility. The 4wd gave me a great deal of comfort for the last two winters.
Worst FeaturesIf V8 cars can get 26 or better mpg, why can't an unloaded V6 pickup, on flat roads, on cruise control not get better than 19 to 20 mpg even at 75 mph.
