2001 Ford Excursion SUV Limited 2WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

At 45k miles, I've already had to
replace tires (primarily due extreme
feathering on front left tire...or
front suspension/steering/alignment
problems from the factory?) and brake
pads. Pulls hard right after brake
replacement. About 50% of the time
electric door locks don't respond to
the keyless entry pad, clicker or door
control. Misc. interior plastic
coverings falling off. Finally, 10.7
mpg is frustrating, especially with
California gas prices.


Best Features

Heated seats are great. The seating capacity and cargo room are awsome. Actually fits in the garage at only 77" tall.


Worst Features

redesign the front suspension/steering

2001 Ford Excursion SUV Limited 2WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Bought the 2WD model because all my
driving is highway, oftentimes towing
a 7'x14' enclosed trailer, which it
handles in an excellent manner.
The Excursion is the safest, most
comfortable vehicle I have ever driven.
My mileage averages 14-17 mpg when not
towing and about half of that when
towing.


Best Features

Unlimited power! Visibility is the best on the road. Stereo system is superb. Safety while driving this large vehicle is paramount.


Worst Features

NONE

Review

The best all-around-car I ever bought.
Roomy, practical and solid. Excellent
mileage with the 7.3 ltr. Diesel too.
On a recent 2700 mile trip the
Excursion averaged 21 mpg and that
included plenty of in-town (New York
City) driving!
As too reliability: At 34800 miles:
Zero problems! Easy on maintenance, but
each oilchange (5000 miles) takes 15
qts. Shell Rotella T 15W-40 plus
filter. About $ 32.- at the local
WalMart.


Worst Features

I would prefer seeing height-adjustable head rests on seat backs because the present neck-snappers are are too low for me (6ft 3")

2001 Ford Excursion SUV Limited 2WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Large comfortable SUV. Good turning
radius, much better than Suburban. Mine
has the 7.3L powerstroke diesel and
gets 16 mpg around town and 20 mpg on
the highway. With the 44 gallon fuel
tank you want to to stop during a trip
before you need need to stop for fuel.
It is the best vehicle ever for that
long road trip. Plenty of room for
passengers and luggage.


Best Features

5 powerpoints, comfortable seating, back-up sensors, and 10 cupholders.


Worst Features

Front sensors for parking. You sit up so high you can't tell how far to pull into a paking space.

Review

I have driven Suburban, yukons and
expeditions. I drove the Limited
Excursion and loved it so much I bought
two of them. Now looking and getting
two new ones with the deisel engines.
Drive one and you will love it, no
other compares!


Best Features

The comfort of the enterior and quality of the vehicle.


Worst Features

The autolock feature similiar to what is available on the F150 and Eddie Bauer Explorers.
