160K miles and still going strong!

1997 Ford Expedition XLT 4dr SUV
Very little maintenance has occurred in 8 years of ownership. Great truck with only minor problems after 8 years and 160,000 miles of wear and tear. Locking systems has several problems and rear speaker is shot, but otherwise in great shape. Strongly recommend the 97' for purchase as a used vehicle.
Very comfortable "cockpit". Ideal for those with large frames.
Dash is very plain and the new 2005 models haven't improved all that much. Of course, with all large SUVs the engine sucks gas. I've averaged 13 miles per gallon over the life of the vehicle so far.
