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.


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

redesign the front suspension/steering

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.


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

NONE

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


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.


Suggested Improvements

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.


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

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

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