Can't Tow a thing with this vehicle
By Bogeymstr on


2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Limited 4dr Crew Cab (4.6L 8cyl 6A)


I purchased this "redesigned" vehicle as it was the perfect vehicle to tow the 17' fishing boat and the still have room for the kids. I recently went to rent a smae 6'x12' enclosed trailer to do some moving. Much to my surprise this National company refused to rent me the trailer citing that "the vehicle is a high rollover risk when towing". I checked with my insurance company and verified that the vehicle was at high risk for roll over when towing, in fact they want to triple my premium no that I broght it to thiier attention. Needless to say I am exploring either Lemon Law remedy or at least consumer fraud.....This vehicle seems to have become a bad buy!

Most companies will not rent to anyone owning this vehicle due to liability issues; it all goes back to when Firestone tires were blowing out on Explorers. Do a google search on why uhaul won't rent to Sport Trac customers and you'll see.
