My speakers in the rear pop when you operate the windows or turn the heater on. Ford and Rodgers stereo have not found the fix for it . Has anyone else had this problem? Please let me know what can fix it. Thanks Mel

This question was asked already but I could not find a reply. Could anyone give me some info on this. I have seen a rack in the brochure but can't find a price at the ford website.
#349 of 386 Sport Trac Bed Width

Does anyone know off the top of their head the bed widths of the Sport Trac? Both Maximum width, and the width at the wheel well? I didn't see them listed on the ford web site.
#350 of 386 driving with the tailgate down

There is no problem driving with the tailgate down. I do it all the time.
The cargo cage extender also has locks to keep it and the tailgate from bouncing around. It is a very sound design. In comparison, if you look at the Nissan cargo extender, they have these cheap hold down clamps that look like an afterthought and are clumsy to use. The tailgate of the Nissan can bounce around with their design.
#351 of 386 v8 Yet in the sport trac yet????
Apr 08, 2001 (3:37 pm)
we purchased a sport trac 11 months ago and we love it(23000 miles in 11 months)..We have had all the problems like oil pressure guage and gas lid and a few other little things.We are ready to trade it in for another one. I haven't seen anywhere that the v8 is out yet.. Has anyone else heard or seen one yet??
#352 of 386 v8 Yet in the sport trac yet????

I have not heard of any plans for a V8 in the Sport Trac, only in the regular Explorer. I doubt if the ST will ever get a V8.
I got my ST 11 months ago too and have enjoyed it thoroughly. I have not had any problems at all excpet for the gas door rub which the dealer adjusted while I waited. It has not rubbed since. Love my ST.

why would you get a new sport trac after only 11 months
Apr 17, 2001 (11:32 am)
Has anyone heard of what changes will be made for the 2002 ST. I have read that a V8 will be optional. How about body style, any changes there?
#355 of 386 almost there...
Apr 20, 2001 (3:51 pm)
OK I have it narrowed down to two vehicles. The Xterra and ST. Sombeody talk to me about the ST. Are the dealers ok to work with? Are they letting the ST's go for a good price? What ammo should I have when negotiating one? Any above average dealers in the Atlanta area?
Dont need anything really in depth. Just tell me what you all think about it.

I have had my ST for 1 year now and am VERY satisfied with the vehicle and the dealer. I have had no problems with the ST and think the quality is very good. It is a very SOLID vehicle.
I love the versitility and comfort of the ST. I have the factory tonneau cover which turns the bed into a big trunk. With the cover off, I have been able to carry everything I ever needed to.
The dealer has been great to work with. Make sure you ask your dealer if they are "Blue Oval Certified". That means they have met certain levels of customer satisfaction as measured by JD Powers.
As for price, I'd recommend calling and asking for the fleet manager and see how much above invoice they are going for. Its an easy, no hassle way of getting a feel for the pricing.
