2001 Ford Excursion Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (6.8L 10cyl 4A)


Review

I had to replace the transmission at 90,000 miles, went to Ford for some help paying for it and they could not have cared less, I have replaced the brakes several times and none of the door locks work, I will not purchase another Ford SUV, have heard better things about GM standing behind their products. Ford Customer Service is rude and difficult to work with.


Best Features

I really was excited when I purchased the truck and it is really fun to drive, unfortunately after reading the website with all of the problems and most of them I am experiencing with my truck, I am really disappointed with the quality of this vehicle.


Worst Features

Try listening to your customers and if you can't build a vehicle that can at least make it to 100,000 you should really charge less. Performance this has been a very disappointing truck and I bought it with 6 miles on it.

2001 Ford Excursion Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (6.8L 10cyl 4A)


Review

After 4 1/2 years our family still loves our "Monster Truck". At 45,000 she still looks like new and runs even better. "Anytime, anywhere or anything" is her motto! We keep her 100% Ford including all servicing. Mileage with the V10 has improved over time averaging 11.5 city and 16 highway (light foot). Minor repairs included replacing the suspension bumpers (we do not off-road), turning the front rotors and a new set of Michelin's. Large mirrors and reverse sensors are a must. Living in Miami makes a sport of parking but sitting high above traffic gives you the added security. Our family keeps cars on average 10 years. We'll let you know how she is doing in another 4 1/2 years.


Best Features

Room, power and versatility are her hallmarks, with good styling and a knack for accommodation.


Worst Features

Front rotors, better fit and finish with higher quality materials.

2001 Ford Excursion XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (6.8L 10cyl 4A)


Review

I bought this vehicle used, with 63,000 miles on it. So far the engine blew, the torque converter was causing engine fires and the brakes have been redone 4 times because nobody can get them done right, the springs are bad on one side. Seems to me that this truck is holding up worse than my 97 Dodge Caravan that had 160,000 miles on it or my 94 Suburban with 240,000 miles on it!


Best Features

Size of the vehicle and the automated seats in the front, fold down middle seat for access to third row seating.


Worst Features

Three rear doors, the two on the bottom with the window over it are a pain, not worth the bother.

Review

We recently bought a 2001 7.3 Ltr Diesel 4x4 and I love it! It is in terrific shape for being a used vehicle and being a diesel it already gets superior gas mileage compared to my Ford Aerostar. It drives like a luxury car but has the strength and performance of a truck. It feels solid and reliable when I drive it. I hope I have it for a long time to come because I love it!


Best Features

The room inside and the leather seats.

Review

The truck is primarily for running my kids between NY and Il. At 65mph I average about 890 miles to a tank or about 20 mpg. I have the Limited 4WD and the Powerstroke diesel. The truck is huge and on long trips we put a twin mattress in the back for the kids to fall asleep while watching movies. This way they are quiet and don't annoy us while driving. I travel with 4 of them. The truck stalled out at about 50,000 miles for want of a fuel filter and I just replaced all the brakes at 93,000. There have been two recalls, one to check a seatbelt and the other to give me 5 new tires at 65,000 miles. No road or weather is too much for it. It is a safe place in a troubled spot.
