Great truck until the transmission went out - which is apparently very common in these vehicles. Managed to get about 113k miles on this one before having any issues. It gets reasonable gas mileage for it's size and way, and is quite cozy. I really enjoyed it, and it truly sucks that I'm having to let it go, but I just don't have the money to get the transmission fixed. A new transmission is about $1,800, and about another $1,800 to have it installed. The truck is only worth about $6,500, so it's truly just not worth it. I'll sell it for what I can and move on. Ford really let their customers down with these vehicles.

Tan leather interior is a welcome change from the drab grays that are commonplace. Enjoy convenience of power EVERYTHING, including rear window. Seat warmer a nice ASSet on cold winter mornings and upon leaving work for day. Tie down hooks on each side of bed make hauling big loads a breeze. Just wish it had fewer miles, but wish I did, too.

Best Lil' Truck

I've owned several trucks over the years, including an F-150 and a GMC Yukon (4DR, 4WD, truck frame). When it comes to getting around town or the back roads, my Sport Trac beats them all. It carries five adults in comfort, has no problems navigating round, unimproved roads, I've been all over Colorado in it, and before that, Germany, where it performed with aplomb on the Autobahn, rock-steady at 95 mph. Sadly, it has a governor on it, set to a few mph below 100, so I never got anywhere near the 130 mph limit of my H-rated tires. The second issue has to do with their factory front rotors. Horrible! They warped in a heartbeat, as did the replacements I installed at 31k miles, despite babying them for months. The final issue involves the rather stupid placement of the impact gas shutoff switch. It's been kicked off by right-seat passengers so often I lost count. First time cost me $100 for a shyster organization in Denver to "fix" the problem. Aside from these three flaws (less than any other car I've owned), it's a great vehicle. Very happy with it!

Bought brand new and have not had any problems. Love this truck. Would recommend to anyone. Sporty and rough looking at the same time.

Totally Excellent

by from Piffard, new York on September 9, 2011

Not to be partial but this is one of the finest and most courteous outfits of sales I have dealt with in all my years of buying vehicles. A real caring business.
