1997 Ford Expedition XLT 4dr SUV

Review

We have loved this vehicle. We bought it with 108k, have 165k now. With three kids it has worn well, but showing signs of age. Ultimately it has met its death with me due to "electrolysis", which is not uncommon in this line of Fords I understand - there is a grounding fault that develops and the current causes the antifreeze to corrode the heater core, which we have replaced 4 times now. The frequency keeps increasing so we are parting ways for another expedition. It tows our camper wonderfully.

Favorite Features

Roomy size, reliability, time honored looks. The 97 design still looks good today.

Suggested Improvements

Terrible gas mileage, but to be expected in a large powerful vehicle.
