Great midsize truck

I have a 2007 Explorer Sport Trac limited and it has been one of the best vehicles I've ever owned it's also the first truck I've ever owned . The Sport Trac has done everything I needed it to do with ease that it's hard to remember how life was without it. I've used it during hurricane season to bring large heavy lumber home to cover up the windows and doors, it has towed lawn mowing equipment, towed paint equipment and with only 2wd it has taken me offroad when I've needed it too. Thus far I'm getting 16mpg on average which is awesome considering I do have a heavy foot and it has heavy A/T tires. What I truly appreciate the Sport Trac for is how comfortable it is to live with, its absolutely quiet and smooth on any surface thanks to the IRS, the Mustang GT derived V8 is very quiet, silky smooth and well behaved and only let's its presence known when you get on it and you hear it roar. Only issues ive had with my Sport Trac was the radiator had a small leak and the fan clutch got stuck while driving so they needed to be replaced but luckily both times the truck didn't over heat and didnt leave me stranded. Spark plugs on these 3v 4.6 engines are a real hassle so make sure to prepare yourself before replacing them. Broken exhaust manifold studs are a common issue that is somewhat difficult to fix but luckily it's harmless if left broken, mine have been broken for over a year now and the only issue I have is ticking at cold start that goes away after 30sec. Oil changes must be done every 5,000 miles, the cam phasers on the 3v 4.6 are very sensitive to changes in oil pressure, dirty oil and varnish so using synthetic oil and changing it every 5k miles insures a clean engine and long service life, also only use the Motorcraft oil filter since they are made for oil pressure sensitive engines like the 4.6 3V. Overall I highly recommend this vehicle to anybody looking for a small truck to daily around, it literally can do everything you need it too just remembered to service it and it will treat you great.

My Favorite vehicle I ever owned

This vehicle takes off like a sports car and drives like a luxury car. Large 4.6 ltr V8 engine with a light weight body. Love this vehicle.

Most dependable for the mileage.

This sport trac is a limited with a 4.6 V8 engine. It is very powerful and handles like a sports car. Lots of room for its size. It's quiet and smooth on the road. The bed is made of a combination of plastics and fiber reinforced type plastic. So it will never rust out. Which makes it great for hauling pool salt and animal feed, or anything that can ruin metal even if it has a bed liner in it. My truck has 193k miles. Original engine and transmission going strong. It has some of Ford's known issues, like hard to remove sleeve spark plugs and 2 exhaust manifold bolts broke. Not hard to repair but had to be done. Some 4.6 and 5.4 engines never had this issue. I would definitely buy another sport trac with the v8.
