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.

I bought my 2002 Sport Trac New as soon as the 2002s' came out. Over all it has met or exceeded my expectations. I have been dissapointed by the 4.0ci engine. I didn't expect to get the mileage Ford rated it but thought it would be close. :( Even after midifications, Tires, Cold air intake & performance exhaust system I still only get 18 -19MPG on the hiway. in-town forget it!). The most serious problem is the timing chain arrangement, at 130,000 miles the engine ate itself. Cost $5000 for a factory engine to fix the problem. The veh still serves the requirement I bought it for so over all I still like the veh. I live in the snow country and it performes very well.

I bought my Sport Trac back in 2004 when it was 3 years old. Have had very few problems with it since then. It handles great in the snow, which is important when you need to drive 45 miles round trip to work everyday, even when the weather is bad. I love the roomy interior, comfortable seating, a neatly laid-out dash, and of course the coolest one-touch power sliding back window! Sure, the bed in the back is on the small side, but the locking tonneau cover makes up for that. It's almost like having a giant lockable trunk. The gas mileage on it stinks, yes, I will agree (15 mpg at best). But overall I would definitely purchase another one next time I need a newer vehicle.

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.

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.

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.
