I bought my Ford Explorer Sport Trac new in 2002 in Minnesota. I owned it for 14 years and 220,000 miles. I am 60 years old, and it is by far the best vehicle I ever owned. Very reliable. Mostly only general maintenance in 14 years. Comfortable ride, roomy, comfortable and convenient interior. Even the tonneau bed cover still looked new after 10 years. After 10 years the step bars had to be removed due to rust, however I lived in Minnesota, so I'm sure the winter road salt was to blame.

Love this truck, I have put almost 100,000 miles!

by from Cumberland, MD on August 23, 2017

Favorite vehicle I have owned. Runs great, only ever really had to do regular maintenance and the occasional fix due to age. It is 15 years old and gets me where I need to go everyday!

I think it is a very well put together car. Its performance is very impressive for a small 4L V6. Acceleration and braking is very nice. The gas milage is way too low for the size of the car. It is neither a SUV nor a Pickup truck. It is on the small side of an SUV but yet gets the same gas milage as a Hummer. But despite these flaws with gas consumption. It rides very smoothly and the handling is near perfect. Its exterior is very similar to the Ford Explorer, not too flashy, but also not boring. I would give the car a 7/10 overall.

Purchased this truck new in Mar 2002 with 4 miles on it. Now 15 years later it has over 171000 miles on it and I am still loving it. Original engine and transmission. Gas mileage is decent considering it is a truck. I average 16 city 24 highway and 19 combined. Paint is starting to fade but for 15 years old- not too bad. I really wish they still made this model as I would surely buy a new one (but keep this one too) I change the oil every 3000 miles. the cruise control buttons have had the plastic covers deteriorate- but the cruise still works.

Owned this truck for 15 years. She has always been dependable and great in the snow. I used her to tow a 17' boat that weighed 3500 lbs, and she always walked along with her in stride. She was a little light in the rear end and that effected cornering on wet roads in 2WD, but reasonable driving was never a problem for someone who knows how to drive within the design limits of their vehicle.

Love Car but Plan on Replacing Motor

by from Greenwood, IN on July 25, 2014

Love this truck so much I replaced the engine with a Jasper Engine rebuilt at 125,000 miles. Rumor is they tend to die around this time. Jasper engine lasted for another 75,000 miles before it also died. I hate to put this truck down I like the functionality. Pulls my 19' boat, drives great in winter, I hunt with it and everything else. Comfortable back seats and covered bed is a great toy chest for my golf clubs, camping gear etc.. even in bad weather. Deciding now whether to let it die in peace or put yet another engine in it. Window regulators are beginning to also slow down a bit. Love the truck though.. would never consider swapping engines that many times for any other vehicle I own.

The truck is wonderful smooth running,a bit larger tank than expected. I love this truck it is cute and sporty enough to drive anywhere, would have had a few different options if I could have afforded and the resale value was wonderful. Thanks for the opportunity.
