I purchased my 2002 Sport Trac with onlly 2200 miles on it. It has not cost me anything but regular maintenance. It is also a great vehicle in the snow as I added a solid tonneau cover so with the extra weight it does extremely well in the snow. Would highly recommend this vehicle as a matter of fact purchased a newer one as they don't make them anymore what a shame.

Awesome truck wanna be. It is great when going off roading and the bed is great when needing to haul small items you tipically dont want to put inside the vehicle. One problem as to why I rated it a 4 and not a 5. Gas is outragous these days and adveraging 14mpg and having to drive 60 miles a day will be the reason I have to get rid of mine. You will love it if gas is not an issue for you. ps according to the prev reviews this must be a great dane person truck or something because I have one too.

Really like the 4WD on this. Handles great on the snowy and icy roads and in the woods. I have rubber flooring, so it is easy to wash, clean out when I need to. Love the get up and go of the 4.0L. Great truck and it looks sharp. Works for my family!!!

Me and my husband bought this truck and took it all the way from Ohio to New Mexico to live. We have already taken a vacation back home in it, and have had no problems. We brought the truck used, so I expected at least a few things might go wrong here and there, but nothing yet, and we have had it for 3 years now. It is pretty roomy inside, and I like the fact that we can just throw our double stroller and groceries in the truck bed. We have even hauled a washer and dryer in the back. It is a great family vehicle. The only thing that I have a complaint about is the paint. Ours has cracked in some places. That is expected though.

Very Dependable... In love this truck!

I purchased this vehicle in Oct '01 and it had 4 miles on it. Four sets of tires, regular oil changes and scheduled maintenance, and 192,811 miles later and it's still going strong. Gas mileage has never been great and the turning radius is very wide... those are my only 2 faults with this truck. I've replaced the switch for the driver power windows, a dash lite is out and the engine light stays on. Other than that... nothing but routine maintenance. I am very pleased with this truck! I hope to put another 100K miles on it!

Most Versitile SUV

by from Murfreesboro, TN on August 21, 2007

I have hauled and gone everywhere in my SUV. From taking the Great Dane to the vet to the sandy beaches of Florida. Great ride, great handling and value for the money.

Love Car but Plan on Replacing Motor

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.

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.

Drives great and is comfortable. Will cost a lot to fill it up and gas mileage is bad for 2011 prices. Side steps have rust issues. Bought it for hunting, fishing and outdoor activities that takes one of the beaten path. Great for that. Poor gas mileage is the only problem that I have with it at todays gas prices.
