2003 Ford Excursion Diesel Eddie Bauer 4WD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


Review

My current Excursion is my best Excursion by far. My first was the Limited 6.8L V10. My current Excursion exceeds and surpasses in all categories. I'll keep this one as long as parts are made for it. I see other SUVs on the road and wonder why bother. I've added after market airbag shocks which has increased the towing capabilities and smoothness of ride while towing. I tow a 10K lbs travel trailer year round, and my excursion has no problem whether pulling passes in Montana or on the long flats of Florida.

2003 Ford Excursion Diesel Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


Review

Great truck - purchased in 2003 new. 180k miles. no major issues and still runs great. Last week a Dodge Ram rear ended me at thirty five miles an hour while I was stopped at a light. His truck is trashed, broken rad., power steering fluid all over the place, need to be towed. My fender is dented and tail light broken. has been on the beach, in 20 inches of snow, towed horses and other cars out of snow drifts, and has suffered my wife hitting posts etc. It keeps on going strong.

Review

I LIVE IN TEXAS WHERE IT IS TURE WE
TRAVEL 22 MILES JUST FOR BREAKFAST.
THIS VEHICLE IS AN EXCEPTIONAL VALUE
FOR CAMPING AND TRAVELING, TOWING. THIS
NEW 6.0 DIESEL IS QUITE AND HAS PLENTY
OF GO POWER. THE BEST NEW FEATURE IS
THE 5 SPEED TRANSMISSION. VERY
COMFORTABLE OVER LONG DISTANT
EXCURSIONS.


Best Features

OUR ANNUAL VACATION THIS YEAR WAS 12 NATIONAL PARKS AND SIX WEEKS CAMPING IN THE FAR WEST. THE EASE OF USE IS EXCITING NEW TRUCK GAVE US GREAT CONFIDENCE TO GO TO SOME VERY OUT OF THE WAS PLACES WITHOUT FEAR OF NOT COMING BACK!


Worst Features

WHAT I DO WHEN I GET A NEW EXCURSION IS TO REPLACE THE SHOCKS WITH OFF ROAD ADJUSTABLE AIR SHOCKS. THE RIDE ACTUALLY IMPROVES FRONT AND REAR. THE VEHICLE IS SOMEHAT UNDER TIRED. 285X70X16 BF GOODRICH A/T IS THE CORRECT TIRE FOR THIS 8,000 LB. TRUCK.

2003 Ford Excursion Diesel Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


Review

I purchased this vehicle because the
other one's,
Hummer,Suburban,Explorer,etc. have all
downsized the interior room. My head
hit the ceiling on almost all the other
ones.


Best Features

Great gas mileage, running 17.3 per gal.


Worst Features

Allow the purchase of performance chips through the dealers.
