- Appearance, performance, comfort.
- Wish fuel economy was better, but with a vehicle this size, it's to be expected.
Owned an 03 Trac for 3 years and loved it. Very versatile vehicle with great looks. Upgraded to a new 07.

- Comfortable ride, quiet, roomy
- gas mileage okay ~ not as bad as my Tribute, tho
I saw my cousin's Sport Trac a couple years ago and knew I had to have one. I finally traded my Mazda Tribute for my Sport Trac and absolutely LOVE IT! The gas mileage isn't great, but what truck does have great gas mileage. My kids love it, I love it, it's fun to drive, I feel very safe in the ice and snow. Definitely plenty of room for this family of 4....read morehide

- The ride, comfortable seating, room for 6 ft. people in rear seat, ok on fuel, very versatile sut/v
- the interior door handles are awkward, wish the rear seats could be removed for more room
This '07 model i got while stationed in Alaska was a perfect choice. Bought new and got to places no car or large "road queens" could or want to go. The power seems sluggish, but it does the job well when passing traffic and going over the trails. Very happy with the quality and ride of this vehicle. I still own it, even after driving it from Alaska to Fort Belvoir, VA. Yes, the drive included Canada too. Anyone that has driven to Alaska can say with authority that the roads can be taxing. Not so in the Sport Trac. I spent a total of 9 days driving this route of nearly 5000 miles....alone, just me the soldier and the Trac. No problems what so ever!!! I felt quite safe and confident in this Ford. Thanks to the side air bags,stiffer chassis,RSC(roll stability control), and a set of Micheline tires. I am impressed!!
I think for just a little more fun and excitement...the "Adrenaline" Sport Trac model may be my next purchase...after i pay this one off that is.
Forever Fords! That's just me....now then, hmmm...i wonder if i can maybe add a super charger to this 4.6 3V? (Ford!, STOMP! STOMP!, HINT!, HINT!!!)

- Tows our tent trailer like it's not there, no hill is too steep!
- Really a great american "suv", no negatives yet
Really improved for 08, better ride, quieter, nice size bed, really luxurious interior, lots of features and handy to have around. Traded a full size F250 crew cab diesel...this is superior for remote camping. Beats the Honda Ridgeline in ride, handling, looks and comfort.
