200,650 miles, mpg-avg 14 in city,17 hwy
Improper original windshield install caused
water to leak through dask and into fuse box
causing lose of underhood lite, courtsey overhead maps lites, and rear wiper motor quit.
Ford wouldn't cover it. Overhead map reading courtesy lites, just changing the bulbs major ordeal, micro thin electrical film circuitry under the bulb tore (1/8" wide). Unless you are an
electrical engineer or know someone who is, you either get a new (whole overhead unit),used $50 if you pulled it from scrape yard,
new approx $350 if you can get one. Extreme
poor design, this and many other areas.

Between 2000 to 2008 & now 2011 Ford quality has increased to number one. Ford Dealers have also improved on service.I had 7 Expeditions in the family all had over 150K miles before trade in.I have a 2000 Expedition with 114k & it has been an excellent vehicle, great for long trips, plenty of power from the 5.4L V8.Tune-ups are every 100,000 miles with major fluid changes at 30K & I recommend using fully synthetic oil every 5k-7k miles.Great family vehicle with plenty of room & a 3rd row seat.A SUV with a proven track record.

I bought my XP used with a Lot of miles on it so I expected some problems and I did have some. First there were some electrical issues which I fixed by putting in a new windsheild. Then there was a starter problem. But thats it. It was going on 200,000 miles when when I was driving with my 3 year old and a lady ran a red light and plowed into us. I am buying another one for how it did in that accident alone.

Got my '00 Expedition in '01 and have not been upset with it.
I have not had a payment on my SUV in over 5 years and have put very little money into it at this point.
My wife and I keep talking about needing a new suv and have balked each time that it comes down to it.
After not having a payment in 5 years and putting very little money into the truck, it is very difficult to justify the $550 for a new payment.
Each time the tires wear down I keep telling my self that it is going to die and why put the money into it.
Then winter comes and the tires outlast the car once again.
The one thing that I have had to replace at this point are the coils, 4@$200ea.
MPG are not good at 10-13 avg.
