I have almost 200,000 miles on my 2001 Sport Trac. It has been the best vehicle I have ever owned, esp. with the driving conditions in my area (snow, ice, freezing rain, summer heat, etc.). It goes thru almost anything the road throws at it and remains stable and tight, no rattles, no weird transmission or engine issues. 4WD is a must, and I love being able to switch it on and off from inside the truck. Still gets 16-20 mpg. and runs like a big Swiss watch. My husband just had a fender bender with it however, so I am in the process of dealing with the ins. co. as they want to total it. I want to repair it and continue driving it because its just so darn safe and comfortable.
