1997 Ford Expedition XLT 4dr SUV

Review

Bought new in 1996, approaching 200K. Overall reliable, engine leaks oil, 3 grand in repairs and dealer still can't figure it out. GREAT in snow, rain, sand. Lots of space for gear. Fuel economy poor, 12 /15 MPG. 5.4L is a must. Found it to be reasonably stable vehicle. Large tank means decent cruising range but filling up to the tune of $60.00 is not fun. Fortunately this is now a back up vehicle so miles and fuel are less. Overall this has been a good solid truck. As said in other reviews, it does take a licking and keep on ticking.

Favorite Features

Tons of space, great field of vision, very comfortable driving position and seats in front. Reclining rear seats are great too.

Suggested Improvements

Fuel economy. But this is a heavy vehicle and so you take the bad with the good.
