1997 Ford Expedition XLT 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

Bought used w/33000 miles. Replaced engine at 107000. All kinds of minor electrical problems. Replaced heater core. Runs/rides great on highway. Snow no problem. Great visibility 360 degrees. Wife loves it.


Best Features

Size w/visibility. Runs smooth. 5.4L moves it right along. Lots of room inside to stretch out on trips. Really is a pleasure to drive.


Worst Features

Hard to change headlights and plugs. Improve electrical system. Work on wind noise problems.

1997 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

I have owned this vehicle from 37000 miles till 112000 and this has been the best vehicle I have ever owned. The only issues that I have had was the window dropped inside the door right after I bought it, but the dealership fixed it. Recently I had to put on an alternator. Otherwise I have only changed the oil. No plug changes, or anything. It has 2 wheel drive, all wheel drive and of course high and low 4 wheel drive. The truck has held up wonderfully and is just about as tight as when I bought it. I now have a 5000lb camper and the truck is rated to pull it. It just has too hard a time getting up to speed, even with the 5.4 titan.


Best Features

Drive systems. Leather seat, comfort, reliability. Mileage for a large suv. 18 highway.

Review

Great all around vehicle. Good power, excellent handling, good brakes, great comfort. The only down fall is less than great gas mileage, but it is not awful. Great traveling vehicle with excellent four wheel drive capablities.


Best Features

Favorite features of this vehicle would have to be styleing, gobs of interior room, and good towing ability.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage and a little bit more power, neither are awful and kind or contridict each other, but every body needs a wish list hu.
