Sick I Traded it
By papa9x on
2001 Ford Excursion XLT 2WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)
I absolutely loved the truck. Parking
was a bit difficult, but the capacity,
and convenience made this the absolute
king. Anywhere, any time taking
anything. Decided to trade (when I had
the flu) to 'save fuel' among other
things. I have a large family, my boys
and I hunt, fish, camp, and generally
haul a fair amount of stuff. In an
instance of insanity I traded for an
Escape, and have regretted that
decision every day since. If Ford does
discontinue this vehicle due to
pressure from the environmentalists,
they will disenfranchise many.
Capacity, stability, backup indicators,
confidence. With this truck, I could
haul 8' furniture and expensive
hardwoods without risk of damage.
Front Rotors were prone to warp. Add
auto-door locks (like Expedition).
