2000 Ford Expedition XLT 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

Overall, I have been pleased with this truck. Pros: carries everything, comfortable. Cons: poor gas mileage, third row seats don't fold flat. The biggest negative comes when you go to get the truck fixed. Ford seems to hide parts in hard-to-find places. Replacing the $50 front heater core requires $600 of labor to remove all the other parts that block it.


Best Features

Single feature? Comfort. For its size, it's not too unwieldy.


Worst Features

The newer models have folding 3rd row seats, so it looks like they fixed that. I'm looking to replace this vehicle now, but the 2006 Expedition's interior seems much cheaper.

2000 Ford Expedition XLT 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

This is an add on from my last review on my Expedition. Now, less than 7k miles from the blown head gasket, at 75k I have a misfiring cylinder. One of 8 the dealership reminds me, all of which could go bad just like cylinder 3 in my current case. $252 later I am still driving my Expedition. How long do you keep it before saying/admitting it was a loss and buy something other than a Ford? Maybe Ford will help now that I have spent over $2k in repairs since purchasing 2 years ago. I doubt it.


Best Features

Same as before, except it is hard to enjoy them when you are broke fixing the vehicle!


Worst Features

Better engine quaility! More horsepower. Better gas mileage. FORD SUPPORT WHEN YOU BUY A LEMON!

Review

I purchased an expedition b/c of its great looks, size, and expected reliability. I bought it w/55k miles in 2003. Loved it and still do b/c of tough truck looks w/the sport package. Great view from the front seats, plenty of room inside, though when the 3rd seat is used there is little to no room in the back, great handling interior comforts. The ride is a little rought. However, all of that went to the wayside when the head gasket blew at 69k and ford refused to help. So $2k later, I am still driving my Expedition. So, love the vehicle but can not rationalize buying another one due to my misfortune and ford's refusal to help. Where is customer service to keep customers loyal?


Best Features

Looks, handling, size, view and again looks.


Worst Features

More room in back when 3rd seat is in use. Better head gaskets!!!!!!!! Ford support when they sell you a lemon!!!!!!!!

Review

Great truck. No racer, as you would expect, but I tow our 20' boat up 6 degree inclines in the Blue Ridge Mountains with no problems at all, and I have the 4.6 Triton! Comfortable on the highway. The XLT Sport is a great deal. XLT with bonuses! You have to have Continental tires on this SUV; they improve handling and quieten the ride.


Best Features

Loads of power outlets, great sunroof, dual air conditioners freeze out the car. great towing package.


Worst Features

MORE POWER! Better acceleration. That's it! Great vehicle for the family and then some.

2000 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV


Review

I really like my Expedition. I bought it with 3 miles on it and now with 110,000 miles I am still just as pleased with it. I plan to keep it as long as it runs.


Best Features

Captains chairs allow my boys to get into the back seat without needing assistance to fold the seat down. I love it.


Worst Features

Take off power needs to be improved. It takes a while for the truck to get up to normal driving speed.
