Cons: bed sizeThis is one of the best overall vehichles I have owned. Good gas mileage for the size and plenty of power and the fantastic v-8 sound from my custom exhaust. It does every thing from hauling everything I need it to haul, with a custom extension I made for the hitch receiver, to taking up to 4 adults comfortably. It has a style of it's own and no other manufactuer can match it. I am totally dissapointed at Ford discontinuing the Sport Trac. It is different and fantastic. It has a great ride and comfort of a big truck without the huge size of an F-150. Love this truck, or SUT, as some call it!
Pros: The V-8 power
Advice: A great buyThis truck is a sleeper. Bought new in 2006, now has 11,500 miles. No serious problems although the six speed transmission reguired an adjustment. The interior quality is excellent with no rattles or low quality materials. This truck is fast, very fast and the V-8 is quiet. Gas mileage is not bad for a V-8. Best in city is 17 mpg and highway is 23 mpg. I really like this truck. The ride comfort is above average for a truck. Paint is showroom, color is Black Cherry and it evokes positive comments from outside observers.
