1997 Ford Expedition XLT 4dr SUV

Review

First vehicle we ever purchased new. EXCELLENT performance; never had any problems except factory recalls for cruise control and torque on wheels - all taken care of at no cost. Comfortable, safe, and reliable. Even though gas mileage is approx. 14 mpg around town, get about 22 on the highway. Our old Toyota Camry got about 18 mpg around town - this truck beats it in storage, comfort, and safety! For a couple hundred dollars extra in fuel costs, it's cheap life insurance!! Will definitely purchase another Ford when this one wears out! But it's built so well - no squeaks or rattles - doubt it ever will. Oh, it's a 2WD with posi-traction and we pass 4WD's in the snow!

Best Features

Comfortable seats - drove to Florida and felt relaxed, safe, sit up high, smooth ride, reliable. Also like the standard cloth seats - cool in summer and warm in winter.

Worst Features

None that we can think of. We bought the XLT with 2WD and the only option was the limited slip differential (posi-traction) and we never got stuck in the ice or snow on our hilly Pennsylvania roads.
