Thinking about leasing an ST in the somewhat near future (maybe summer time) and am looking for some real life leasing examples. Anyone out there leased their vehicle? Doesn't matter where you live, but I'm in Miami. Thanks.
#338 of 386 After Market Bed Cover and Trailer Hitch
Feb 27, 2001 (11:07 am)
Greetings to all and apologies if this has been recently discussed but I am looking for any advice or recommendations on the following:
1) The tonneau cover is not a good fit for me and I know that a company in Michigan (A.R.E.) produces a fiberglass camper shell style cover. Any thoughts on this or does anyone know of other companies doing the same/similar product?
2) Can anyone recommend a good trailer hitch? Can -Haul install one? Is there one that is easy to order and install yourself? Thoughts?
Would you mind e-mailing me at RSchFamilyaol.com
with any ideas? I sometimes forget to log on here to check... THANK YOU

#340 of 386 Oil Pressure GaugeSticks
Mar 03, 2001 (6:13 am)
Have been experiencing a problem with the oil gauge. After starting the vehicle the gauge never moves but stays stuck and the check gauges light stays on until the truck warms up,usually takes about a minute or 2 then the needle on the gauge pops right into the proper reading and the check gauges light goes out. Its seems to happen when it has been cold overnite 50 degrees or cooler,since it has warmed up it hasnt happened again. Anyone experiencing a similar problem?
Mar 03, 2001 (2:23 pm)
I have heard this problem discussed on www.mysporttrac.com its the sending unit. The engine is getting oil the gauge just dosnt show it until truck warms up. Fix is to have the dealer replace sending unit. The problem does not harm the truck.

Dealer will fix this problem. Apparently it is quite common not only on Sport Trac but other 2001 models. Quick fix and it really does fix it.
#343 of 386 Any problem with driving with the tailgate down?
Mar 08, 2001 (11:13 am)
I am on the verge of buying a Sport Trac, but I am concerned about one issue: I will be using the bed extender/cargo cage extensively, since I will carry bicycles almost every time I use the truck. This means that most of the time I will be driving around with the tailgate down. Is this OK? Does Ford recommend against driving at highway speeds, or driving on bumpy roads, with the tailgate down? Can anyone tell me if the tailgate moves or makes noise when down? Thanks.
#344 of 386 Cant wait
Mar 10, 2001 (12:47 am)
In 8 hours Ill be picking up my new green ST with everything except leather and moonroof and I cant wait because my current car has 171,000 miles on it and is dying. I've read most of the messages and this will help me before I sign the final papers. Thanks

Does anyone have the inside scoop on what changes Ford has in store for the 2002 models (particularly in light of the body style changes for the 2002 Explorer)? Also, have sales been strong enough for Ford to continue manufacturing the Sport Trac for several model years to come?

I recently visited a ford dealership and looked into leasing a explorer sport. The one I looked at was fully loaded for $28,500.00. They quoted me $1000.00 down at $325.00 a month. Unfortunatly I can not get out of my current lease so I have to wait until November. I don't know if I am going to lease my explorer or not.
