"No major repairs and is very comfortable to drive. I feel safe when driving. Gas mileage could be better, but not bad compared to other SUVs."

"Driving to work --long distances-- in mountain winters when I frequently could not see the road and had to steer by watching telephone wires parallel to the road, I always felt like there was a lot of car between me and the ditch. 4 wheel drive and being higher than a car also increased safety. Just me and my two labrador retrievers (dogs in the bed with a topper) and I worried more about the safety of my dogs than of myself. LOVE that vehicle!!"

"I was looking for a used truck big enough for my 6mo daughter, my two medium sized dogs and my wife...the Sports Trac fit the bill and gets the job done. The ride is smooth, even as a 2003 and with 74,000 it still feels new. Power is there if needed, and it's a truck so gas mileage is about mediocre, but keeping the discipline with the foot pedal helps. My daughter's car seat fits, the truck bed is more than ample for our needs: quick example, I just loaded and dumped about 5oo lbs of dirt...drove like the champ. FORD make a good product in my opinion."

Pros: "Powerful 4 banger, geared for torque, smooth ride."

Cons: "None that I can complain about."

"Although not geared as a powerwagon it is for hauling. Moved my whole house (except for larger furniture) in this vehicle when I relocated. Absolutely no mechanical problems since original purchase. Just replaced the battery and front brakes after 10 years. This truck is still as sharp looking/stylish even by todays model standards. Has been a very handy and useful multi-purpose vehicle throughout the years. What a shame Ford discontinued this model line. A real dependable asset to my family."
