2000 Ford Expedition SUV Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

Big powerful SUV that can tow a boat and take the kids to school. A bit tall for kids in car seats (hard to buckle standing outside the SUV) but teens have no problem. Handles well in snow, rain and dry. No problem passing or getting up to highway speed. AWD hurts fuel mileage but 4X4 is nice for deep snow and any off road drive. Running boards and lower ground clearance are not well suited for serious 4X4 off roading. Should use running boards when exiting the SUV or pant legs can get mud/dirt on them.


Best Features

Good visibility from seating up high. Heat seats are nice on a cold morning and leather help keep things clean with small kids. Multiple adjusts on driver seat are nice. Adjustable pedals - gas & brake.


Worst Features

Wider or retractable running boards. Stow-away 3rd row seat. Auto rear climate control. Easier design to access rear 3rd row seating.

Review

My Expedition is almost 6 years old with 71,000 miles. With just less than 36,000 the engine needed replacement. Last July 2005 with 67,000 it needed a transfer case. This past week in February 2006 the transfer case needed replacement with only 5,000 since July. At the same time Ford needed to replace the rear end. Quality is Not Job One. I would not recommend this vehicle.

Review

I like the Expedition, it's a nice truck with a nice ride. The only thing I don't like about it is that the gas mileage is so poor. I manage about 12-13 mpg in the city. This SUV still goes and goes after 110,000 miles and still running strong. The 5.4 V8 is powerful.


Best Features

Heated seats, power adjustable pedals, beige trim, automatic headlamps, roomy, 6-CD Player, 5.4 V8 engine, auto dimming mirror, chrome wheels.


Worst Features

Improved gas mileage, volume and temperature controls on the steering wheel, passenger power seat.

Review

Have been stranded three times in 82k miles. Once with a ghost problem with the front wheels grinding and stopping the truck while coasting. Pulled over in Nashville and of course the problem went away. Never came back. Second experience was with the transmission getting stuck in Drive and had to be towed. The linkage needed replacing. Third, at 80k, a spark plug blew out of the head. Come to find out this is a known problem at Ford since they engineered and sell a repair kit to add a coil to allow the plug to be reinstalled. Kit only works if minimal head material gets blown out. My problem took too much material so head needs replacing. Don't just do one head because the other has the same flaw.


Best Features

Roomy. Plenty of power. Never been stuck in 4wd. Cuts through deep snow with ease and pulls trailers very well.


Worst Features

Better engine that lasts longer than the payment schedule. Better interior design quality (plastic pieces break off easily).
