hard to say, i find theyre usually pretty good all over, but not always..
2004 would still have new car warranty on it unless its got high km so take it back to the dealer and get it checked out

My BF XR8 Ute has traction control but it doesn't get the dynamic stability control that the sedan gets.

From the BA MK2 onwards the Utes have traction control, Well thats what we got here in NZ. My BA Pursuit doesn't have traction control..........Its a real Ute. :wink: :wink:

Most of the 5.4 dohc boss motors are a bit flat below 3000rpm. It has nothing to do with the traction control.
