1999 Ford Expedition SUV Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV


Review

I bought this SUV new in 1999 and now have 95,000 miles on it. It has performed extremely well over the years and has been very reliable and easy to drive. It is great for towing boats and Waverunners as well as U-Hauls to take kids to college. The throttle valve assembly was replaced at 86K miles but otherwise no major repairs other than routine maintenance. I would definitely buy another if I needed a large SUV.


Favorite Features

Adjustable foot pedals for my wife. 4 cup holders available to front seat occupants. Lots of power for acceleration.


Suggested Improvements

Gas mileage is always an issue with the price of gas but you have to expect poor mileage with a vehicle this size. Third row seat is uncomfortable but rarely used...usually stays in the garage so cargo space is maximized.

Review

Bought it new for my wife, the list price was over $39,000. We had so many little problems that's cost a lot to be fixed. Air ride bags $800. Air conditioner. leaking water $750. Power bank (it's like spark plugs) $800. Heater trap door activator $1000. Head light auto switch, rear wiper, sticky linkage cable...etc. All of that on top of bad gas mileage. I just can't help it but compare it to my trusty 1994 Honda Accord with 153,000 miles and tell my self why... why... why... you stupid had to buy a Ford?


Favorite Features

I liked it under the bumper to bumper warranty only.


Suggested Improvements

Gas mileage. Reliability is a serious problem and costly.

Review

When our lease for our Tahoe was up we wanted to buy our next SUV. For the money the Exp was the best bet. Compaired to the Tahoe it didnt match up. But for the money we can't beat it. I wish it got better gas mileage. I only get 13 city/hwy. If money was not a option I would have another Tahoe.


Favorite Features

Stylish Looks, Easy to drive, 3rd seat rear air/heat


Suggested Improvements

CD/Radio, gas mileage

Review

Yesterday I was involved in a serious accident with my 1999 Expediation. If it wasn't for the fact that the truck was so well built and the handling was so tight, I wouldn't be here today. The drivers door took the full impact and the drivers compartment was not compromised in any way. Both myself and my husband (who was driving) walked away. The truck was totalled and I am going right out and buy another!! Excellent truck!


Favorite Features

The best features are the visability and steering capabilities of this large SUV. I cannot say enough good things about this vehicle.


Suggested Improvements

NONE

Review

I have been extremely satisfied with the handling and comfort of my expedition both on and off road. Averaging 18-19 miles per gallon, in my opinion is excellent for a large truck.


Favorite Features

Safety signals in mirrors, roomy, sound system.

Review

This was my first Expedition. I have since bought a 2002 Bauer for my wife and she loves it. We have three kids and there aren't many vehicles that you can put three car seats across. I have the 4.6L in both and I think they have great power. Gas mileage is awful but what do you expect from a beast like this.


Favorite Features

So much room. Nice leather and I love when cars get out of your way because they see the beast barreling down the highway.


Suggested Improvements

Sound system was improved in my 2002.
