2004 Ford Excursion Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (6.8L 10cyl 4A)
So far the diesel engine and all the other features have been tops. Only a few small glitches and three Colorado and 6 trips over 1500 miles with two under three year old kids and this is the way to go. Tuned the computer with micro chip and now get 21-22 miles per gallon on the highway--in this tank, what a way to go. Only had one adjustment early on the diesel and one tank of contaminated diesel which cleaned out just fine. You can't beat this for loading up and hitting the highway. Gets up and roars when the accelerator is pushed; amazing for a vehicle this size.
ROOM--good ride--surprising acceleration--DVD is a life saver and someone was thinking with all the outlets and cup holders.
Controls on the side of the seat would be better mounted on door. Not enough room for average guy's hand.
