I love this truck it looks good, rides great, gas is even better than sticker! I like the motorized rear sliding window. This is my first truck and I am very pleased. The built in bed liner is a great feature as well as the tow hooks on the side rails.

I recieved my 2004 sport trac for Mother's day in 2004. I go out off road hunting rocks to work into jewerly. I go with my rock club on field trips and have never found a place I could not go. I do have the automatic 4X4. I have been over places where a lot of high clearance vehicles could not go. I think that is due to the shorter stance. I made a cover for the bed (out of vinyl for weight) and have cut my fuel use down thus adding 2-3 miles per gallon. On a freeway trip I can avg. 22 to 25 mpg. We had only 2 problems with the truck, 1. recall due to manufacture putting wrong transmission fluid in at the factory. And the thieft device (which shuts off the truck) installed addon from the dealer, shorted out the truck. Had to have it towed into the dealer and device removed. All else has been good. Love my dealer, Gaudin Ford, in Las Vegas, NV. I also have a Tent that fits in the bed of the truck. I was able to use the one that fits a 2004 Ford explorer truck. I had a 4inch foam pad cut to shape of the bed, including the tail gate and have the full comfort of a memory foam bed while camping. I would recommend this to everyone who wants room inside and a full 6' bed (with the bed extender). I am 5' 1/2" 60 yrs old and need a bit of help getting into it. I use a step stool with a rope attached to get into the cab without hurting my back. I have not found a running step that would work well without catching it on rocks, cutting my clearance.

Good little truck

I have owned Ford trucks in the past and will again in the future. I wanted a Ford Ranger and my wife wanted to be able to haul at least 4 passengers in comfort. This Sport Trac is like a Ranger limo. Or a stretch Ranger. It does everything I need it to do. Interior is just like a Ranger but bigger. Could use more cubby holes as I tend to stash stuff everywhere. Perhaps a little more storage behind the rear seat. Overall a great little truck getting 16 MPG in town and 18 MPG on the highway at 70MPH. We'll soon see how it does pulling a boat.

This is the type of truck that gets an A-Okay from the wife. It has all the advantages of a truck (unless you like to haul large loads)with the comfort of a small RV. Leather seats are plush as is the room. The only disadvantages is a little road noise (cut up the tunes)and visability when backing up. I would buy another one in a heart beat. I use a Jeep Wrangler in the woods but my Sports Trac on the highway.

Bought the truck with 76K miles on it. I absolutely loved my truck. It was comfortable, smooth and handled well. HOWEVER... MPG was horrible, and the same day i hit 100k miles on this truck...is the same day my tranny blew. As if it was rigged. I know that it was not rigged, but that is what it felt like. I was so dissapointed with the brand at that point and lost my faith and trust with it. Because of this experience i will never buy a ford again. Its a shame because i really loved my truck and wanted to keep it for much longer than i did :(

Poor Charlie

by from Pasadena Texas on November 22, 2013

It's not so much the car wasn't nice, the quality was poor. We purchased the truck and a week later it broke.

Spent 1800.00 dollars in first 30 days! And dealership wasn't honest with me. That's what I get for trusting them, when they say take as is NO WARRANTY!!! New ball joints upper and lower,new windshield,new muffler system,new battery,wipers! And the only thing I am upset about the ball joints -1000.00! Just for that! Including labor costs! There should a law automatic costs covered 50-50. Thanks!

This little truck had 30,00 miles on it when I bought it a year old. If you press the O/D button while shifting into drive...DON'T DO THAT. one guy before me said that it couldn't be avoided but hat is not true at all. And yeah, the seat belt on the driver side doesn't always retract very strong but just DEAL with it! ..EVERYTHING else that his truck is makes up for it. Great visibility, fantastic mileage i hauled whoever and whatever i ever wanted. i kept up with the maintenance. It towed my 3,000lb Ski Supreme and never had a problem up and down the ramp. It bounced and bobbled a bit because of the short wheelbase but I also had air shocks and it had a little jacked up look when not towing. The ABS bed liner was bullet proof and the power socket in the back of the bed came in handy many times. I used the bed extender at times or removed it when it got in the way. I loved the way it drove and the way it looked in my driveway. We had the torch red or..THE OTHER Burgundy red and it was straight as an arrow. And at 2000, 500 miles it still looked like it only had 50,00. I traded it for good value and bought something bigger but it more than served me well. I drove mostly highway and got better than 20 MPG. my best score was 27.7 from Dallas to Houston. Over the ten years I owned it, I replaced the Cruise control buttons, the compass on the overhead upper and lower ball joints, the timing belt and the thermostat housing,fuel pump and. there was one issue with the heater door but it wasn't expensive. i really hated to trade it but we just outgrew it. When I went back to the dealership to clean it out and turn in my title I was honestly quite sad. Just like saying goodbye to an old friend. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone. I just loved it..

I love my Sport Trac! Its the perfect mix between an SUV and a Truck. There is a ton of room in the back seats, me and a couple friends went on a golf trip and I was able to carry the four of us, each with a golf bag and another bag each. It is comfortable to drive and I've never had any issues with it! I'm coming up on 100,000 miles, and I easily see it making it to 200,000!
