2004 Ford Excursion Eddie Bauer 4WD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


Review

All I can say is that the only way to
own this SUV is to have the 6.0 Turbo
diesel, and you get used to the sound.
The gas mileage is incredible for a
vehicle this size whether in town or
towing! We have owned many Ford
vehicles over time (F-150, Bronco,
Expedition) primarily for towing a
large boat over long distances.
Nothing we have owned has even come
close to comparing in towing quality
and interior quantity. This SUV is
made to tow! The 6.0 coupled with the
regearing of the Transmission in "Tow"
mode makes this SUV superior over any
other SUV. The interior room is just
another added bonus. Especially for
hauling all the gear, kids, and dogs.


Best Features

6.0 Turbo Diesel & Transmission, Radio Controls on Steering, Adjustable pedals, DVD Player, Back-up sensors (for easy parallel parking!) The ease to drive and comfort level.


Worst Features

KEEP MAKING THEM! When this vehicle has seen it's time, an F-250 Crew 6.0 Turbo Diesel Truck just is not the perfect comfort match for us with kids, gear, and dogs in tow!

2004 Ford Excursion Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


Review

We love our excursion. I had a 1999
gmc Suburban with only 50000 and it was
consantly breaking. The dealership
that I had purchased the suburban from
never fixed it correctly so I decided
to try Ford And am I ever happy I did.
The hardest thing for me to get use to
is how far the side mirrors stick out
I go on some narrow streets and
sometimes I woory that they are going
to hit something, Other then that I
love it. I test drove a lot of other
cars before I made my final choice. I
was getting 10 mpg in my suburban and
now I get 22 mpg. Towing is wonderful
and easy.


Best Features

Heated seats, 6 disc cd, MPG Amount that it carries. the way the cargo doors open.


Worst Features

Make the side mirrors so that they can be pushed in closer to the car

Review

This is my families fifth Excursion.
We make 50 mile round trip to take 5
kids to school each week day and 50
miles to pick up in afternoon. Also
200 mile round trip to the city each
weekend for shopping.


Best Features

I loved the power stroke diesel but the extra power of the 2003 and 2004 6.0 diesel makes it even better


Worst Features

I have owned 2000 2002 2002 2003 & 2004 Excursion. All fully loaded and equipped with diesel. I have never have had a problem with any of them. Like I said I love new transmission and diesel

Review

I have four teenage sons and sometimes
tow a 5000lb boat. I bought the diesel
for fuel economy -- getting 16-22mph.
It took a short while to get used
driving this large vehicle, but now I
LOVE driving this car. Trips are a joy
with the entertainment package. NO new
car "little problems" (yet, at 3500
miles). I tend to buy new cars and keep
them for 10 years. I believe I made a
very good choice for the next 10. Also
very impressed with how solidly this
vehicle seems to be built, inside and
out. Paid a LOT, for this kind of
comfort/utility for next 10 years I
don't regret a cent. 4 wheel drive gets
me up/down drive I haven't used in years.


Best Features

Comfort -- leather seats are a you. My 75 yr old mother (bad back, legs) loves the car. Even though the seats are high, running boards and handles make it no problem to get in/out (even for my mother). Kids love DVD when we travel.


Worst Features

I beleive I made the right choice with the diesel engine. Fuel economy is excellent (imho) for a vehicle this size. I just wish I could get it to be a bit quieter. Inside is no problem, but it is undeniably a diesel when you're standing next to it.
