When you have to take everything with you!
By chuckt6 on
2003 Ford Excursion XLT Value Rwd 4dr SUV (7.3L 8cyl Turbodiesel 4A)
big dogs(50 lbs and 90 lbs), 3 kids, The wife and I, and all our travel stuff fit fine in this monster.
We purchased ours in 2010 with 122,000 miles on it.
We've put 20K miles on it with minimal problems.
We did replaced the ball joints($900) and put in new spark plugs($600).
Great value for the vehicle, all leather, and comfortable.
We purchased ours from a private party for $7400.
The V10 engine is a gas hog, but will go for 300K miles.
Same engine used in buses and limo's.
Average about 12 mpg, but it that is better than driving two cars and getting 20 mpg in each car.
The adjustable pedals and memory seats are a great feature for my wife an I.
She is 5 feet and I am 6' 4".
The code pad to unlock the door is also a great feature, it makes it easy to switch vehicles because she can just leave the keys in it for me.
