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


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.


Favorite 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


Suggested Improvements

Boat anchor for the queen mary

Diesel is a great engine. Very comfortable for family and pets for long & short trips. Handles very well for a truck of its size.

Review

Love my Excursion! we're a tall family of 5, husband 6'3, wife 5'10 and three kids ages 10,10, & 13 who are all tall for their age. We frequently tow a jeep or sand rail and an occasional boat. Towing ability is great, plenty of leg room for long hauls (500 miles to get to the beach). Great for the winter driving, snow is no worry. Great hwy mpg (16-18) getting kids into town for school with the diesel. 4X4 does great driving in sand or to rocky trail heads. Like the firm ride- doesn't feel like a boat bobbing around like other lrg SUV's. It's big--but worth it if your a big family who travels & tows.


Favorite Features

Firm ride, solid axle front end


Suggested Improvements

Would have liked to see excursion continue on to many more model years and not be labeled as some enviromental hazard
