1998 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

I bought this SUV with 55K on it. Currently have 91K on it with no major problems. Only repair thus far has been broken tie rod end which is scary because I drove it home 30 miles when the wheel started shimmeeing. After crawling under front end, the only thing holding the tie rod up was the rubber cover. $50 repair. Has decent power and is a bit heavy and rolly but I feel safe in it. It does suck gas like the tank has a hole in it. My friend has a Tahoe and he gets 16-18 mph, I only get 12-14 mph. I do think mine rides and drives better and is more stylish. All in all, a very good truck thus far, knock on wood. If they could only get 20 mph. :)

Review

Overall it has been a good dependable vehicle to own and drive. It's major draw back is it's fuel economy, my truck gets about 13 to 14 miles to gallon city and 17 to 18 highway. Repair costs and general maintenance prices is above average.


Best Features

Plenty of room when traveling for adults,kids and luggage.


Worst Features

Gas mileage

Review

This is a fun vehicle to drive, but watch out for the mechanical. The direct ignition system is prone to failure w/these coils running 100+ -- replacement of the eight could set you back 1200-1500


Best Features

secure ride , feeling of safety


Worst Features

The ignition system

Review

I have been averaging 30K-40K a year. Besides routine maintence I have had no problems. I currently have 164K with original everthing. I am currently having small wear and tear problems, but nothing major.


Best Features

Comfortable, quiet, and great winter handeling.


Worst Features

Fuel Economy, more room behind 3rd seat, or I could buy something bigger. Bring back the idea of the 4.5 Powerstroke that was cancelled in 03

Review

Just bought this for about $14,000. after 71k mi. the ride felt solid and the reviews checked out to be decent. I liked the security of a large vehicle, the 4x4 and the third row seating for my family of 4 and occasional guests. leather is largely intact, but you can see some rips on the drivers seat. electricals are a bit weird the 'door ajar' sign stays on for a couple of minuges someitmes, and it's tough to figure out if the whole thing is malfunctioning or if it's trying to be smart. abut 14 mi/gal. the 5.4L engine is plenty to jump the truck out of the road if you need to merge or merge ahead of the other car rather than behind it.


Best Features

powerful engine, large and plush interior, solid feel to the ride


Worst Features

better leather quality. more testing of electrical system.
