I moved from a manual transmission 4 cylinder to a automatic transmission 6 cylinder. This truck has lots of power and can make it over hills and passes at the posted speed limit. The cruise control is a fabulous feature on long drives. The color is a beautiful blue. I wasn't picky about that but lucked out that this one was on the lot when I went looking. The gas tank is huge which makes stopping on long trips further between. City driving is good too. Excellent in morning and evening traffic. There is excellent pick up when merging onto the freeway. With no camper on the back the blind spots are minimal. The extended cab is a great feature. I can keep tie downs, etc, with the truck permanently. You can also put all your luggage there and not worry about damage or theft from the truck bed. You also don't loose any space in the bed by having to put a truck box in the back to store stuff in. I would totally recommend this truck to someone who is looking for a light/medium duty truck.
This is my second Sport Trac. The first one, an '02, was flawless. No repairs other than routine maintainance. It had over 200K miles, so I thought that I should consider another vehicle. I choose a 2008 Sport Trac with the Adrenalin package with the V-8. I looks great, drives great and gets decent mileage. I average around 21 miles on the highway. The truck has just enough bed capacity for weekend projects.
It has a good mileage for a truck. My family only has three people and that is the perfect size truck for us and all our toys. I did not get the navigation or the sun roof, because I thought it costs too much. But it came with sync, the voice activation, USB port and line in, and those were all I needed.
