Review

Purchased this vehicle used with 21,000 miles. Bought it for the room and reliability of the diesel. To date the average fuel economy has been good at 18.7 mpg/average. Plenty of room and power. This vehicle has the dvd option that I would not have picked if the vehicle was not purchased used but found that the grandkids love it. So far no complaints.


Best Features

Diesel power and fuel economy for such a large vehicle. Visibility is good,


Worst Features

Steering is not steady at low speeds, vehicle tends to wander until you get used to driving it.

Review

I too traded in a 2000 Excursion for a
2004 thinking it was the last year.
Never want to drive a smaller vehicle
again. Greatly improved ride and quiter
than the 2000 model. Improve the gas
mileage and keep building these. They
shrunk the Expedition and I don't want
to go back to that! Need to keep building
these!


Best Features

Size comfort and style.


Worst Features

Improve the mileage and improve the interior style and design - would love a power moon roof option.

Review

From the day I test drove this, I did
not like it and had problems.
First off, on the test drove and
pulled out in traffic. The Excursion
snorted bucked and chattered as we
tried to accelerate into traffic. I
told the salesman that I wanted to go
back and test drive one with the
V10...He said- THIS IS THE V10! When
I went to get out of the vehicle. The
door handle snapped off in my hand!
Not only has this vehicle been nothing
but problems, the dealer I bought this
from could care less. I think it even
seems to burn gas when the engine is
off. Going into a corner with the
Excursion is like trying to manuver a
drunk hippo.


Best Features

When you travel, its nice to know you dont have to wonder if you need to stop at the rest stop for a pee. Because you can always count on having to fill up with gas


Worst Features

Boat anchor for the queen mary

Review

I traded my mini-van in to get my
Excursion so I could feel like a man
again while driving my family with four
girls. What I didn't know was how
versatile this beast is. It seats even
8 adults comfortably. It tows almost
anything without trying. The ride is
very smooth. I took out the back seat &
folded the middle one down then camped
in it by myself for three days quite
comfortably. Here is the one that is
hard to believe. My trailer was out of
comission so I took off the front
wheels of my YFZ450 Quad and stuck it
in the back! I took pictures to prove
it and I'm sending them to a quad mag.
This truck is amazing.


Best Features

The backup sensor is awesome. You can parallel park or back up this monster so easily it is fun.


Worst Features

Sometimes a front sensor would be nice. you are so high up and the trunk/grill is so big it is hard to judge sometimes. Although if I need to pull in tight somewhere I just back in and use the senser!
