2008 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Crew Cab Limited 4dr Crew Cab (4.6L 8cyl 6A)


Review

This is the best and most reliable vehicle I have ever owened. I have been dilligent about oile changes every 4K miles and it get excatly the same mileage, has the same performance and for the most part the same appearance as it did when it was new. Furhtermore, most of the mileage has been in relativley heavy traffic in Metro Atlanta yet I anticipate another 100K flawless miles before I pass it on. Sadly, there is still nothing on the market that competes with it in this size range.

2008 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Crew Cab Limited 4dr Crew Cab (4.6L 8cyl 6A)


Review

I bought a Sport Trac in 2001 and drove it for 9 years, putting 260,000 miles on it over the period.
That truck was special. Little details and features were well designed and useful...from the tie-down cleats on the bed to the 'bump' feature on the rear sliding window. Dozens of things made those early model year Sport Trac attractive.

When I finally wore out the first one I ran to the dealership to get another one. UGH. It is a totally different vehicle...so much worse in so many ways I cannot go into all of them.

I use mine to haul rocks, firewood, gravel, etc. The bed was not designed to be used for these things. Awful.


Best Features

Handling and performance. It feels heavy and lumbering on winding mountain roads where I live compared to the 2001 I had but it does drive nice around suburban neighborhoods and on highways.


Worst Features

Too late.

2008 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Crew Cab XLT 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Pretty much satisfied with the vehicle. Only drawbacks are fuel economy, of which I am getting close to 18 mpg around town, and the tire pressure indicator keeps going off. Have had 2 dealerships look at the tire pressure indicator but no solution yet.


Best Features

View from drivers seat, comfort, handling


Worst Features

Better location and quality workmanship of cup holders, overhead console storage compartments, and arm rest storage compartment.

Review

Test drove several different full-size trucks models including Ford. Had an F- 150 for 11 years. Not much had changed on the interior including, entire front display panel and radio. I was disappointed with this until I test dove the Sport Trac. It's like getting the inside comfort and styling of a luxury car, yet with the manly toughness and sporty styling of a truck. I get 23 mpg on the highway and 17 mpg in town. This is slightly better than my previous F-150. My family and I really enjoy going places in this remarkable vehicle.


Best Features

Performance,Overall Styling and Family Comfort


Worst Features

MPG & Truck was sold with GoodYear Fortera Tires. These tires now have nearly 20,000 miles on them and will need to be replaced in about 5,000 from now. These are suppose to be 50,000+ mile tires. This is the biggest disappointment so far. Car dealer claims that there is no problem with these tires?

I am very happy I bought this little bull, that left every one in the dust. Yea!
