2004 Ford Excursion SUV Eddie Bauer Rwd 4dr SUV (6.8L 10cyl 4A)


Review

This is our second Excursion. We
frequently take excursions from SoCal
into NorCal and Central Cal, delivering
finished goods and transporting our two
sons. With a quick mod on the air
intake, we get 14+ MPG, and this
includes 75mph ascent on the grapevine
and fully loaded in the cabin! We got
16.3 mpg once on a trip to Vegas and
back. It's bigger than other SUV's
(Largest), so small cars yield and
Semi's see us.


Best Features

The smooth ride. Maybe I'm just used to it, but the kids fall asleep QUICK! Even with the factory installed DVD player!


Worst Features

Increase the mileage. We installed a Tornado into the intake and I immediately saw 1 - 2 MPG increase. I understand there are other mods available without compromising smog standards. Ford should be installing these automatically!

2004 Ford Excursion SUV Limited Rwd 4dr SUV (6.8L 10cyl 4A)


Review

We have always maintained between 14 to
18 mpg even when towing. The ease of
getting in and out of the third seat is
unbelievable. It is perfect when
taking large groups of children because
everyone can see the screen on the
entertainment package. The turning
ratio is better than I could have ever
hoped for especially when I am coming
from a Dodge Dakota with no turning
ratio. We are so totally happy with
this vehicle.


Best Features

Comfort, ease in driving, spacious interior. The cup holders are great, one for everyone. The backup alarm system is very handy and I would not want to do without it.


Worst Features

Self-cleaning! Other than that it is absolutely perfect for us.

2004 Ford Excursion SUV XLS Rwd 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

With 2 young children/2 car seats, this
is our best bet yet! It has all of the
room we need to carry extra passengers
plus our do-it-yourself projects.

It is easy to drive, park and back up.
My only suggestion: measure your
garage before you buy. We have an
oversized garage but many garages can't
fit it!

One mini-van driver asked sarcastically
asked why I drive such a big tank? I
replied..."Because I can!" We don't
put much mileage on it so fuel economy
wasn't a concern.

Well worth the $$ and we are very
happy!


Best Features

space, space and more space! Rear entry style is convenient to use.


Worst Features

Details of quality, knobs falling off of many controls.
