    Just popping in to say hello and to send along some happy Birthday greetings for my 2001 purchased new in Port Charlotte FL on June 8, 2000.

    Not once in all this time (and 155,000 miles) has she ever let me down, even through the Firestone tire recall! LOL. Routine maintenance and frequent oil changes with Mobil 1 are a MUST!

    I think the Sport Trac is still an eye catching and unique truck. Such flexible cargo capacity and has a comfortable ride and great handling. The fact they run and run without major issues puts the icing on the cake for me.

    Wishing my sweet girl a Happy 20th Birthday!

    This years maintenance highlights:
