Explorer Sport Trac 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 18,730 miles
I've had two incidents where the left rear brakes has locked up: First, after entering parking garage from snow covered streets 02/21/03. Second, making a left turn from a complete stop while raining. Loses traction over bumpy road ares and dips.
