2001 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 2WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

We bought our Expedition new in 01 and have been very pleased with the reliability and comfort of this vehicle. It now has 140k and still rides very smooth and feels wonderful. It has been very reliable with regular maintenance performed. My wife has abused this car with three kids and "Eddie" (nickname my kids gave it) has responded with remarkable resiliency. A real feather in ford's cap. I will be buying the 01-03 F150 with the same engine (5.4 liter Triton V8) in a few years after I retire. Eddie has been an extremely reliable vehicle who acts like he wants to run another 100k easy. I will be giving him a tune up soon replacing all the plugs and wires. Well deserved!


Favorite Features

Reliability, comfort, build quality


Suggested Improvements

Reliability of air suspension system. I will be replacing with springs later this year, the air pump is almost shot for the air suspension system and the leveler.

2001 Ford Expedition XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

The menu did not allow you to select 5.4 l. I purchased with 21k miles and have loved this for over the road trips. I pulled an 8500 lb boat from Wash DC to Key West no problem. At 110k I replaced plugs and three coils not sweat. I did have to have the ball joints and universal replaced at around 100k. She still runs great. Recently got 17 mpg on a trip from Pittsburg Pa to Panama City fl 70+ mph. It now has 153k miles and I have no intention of ever getting rid of it. Have run synthetic oil since purchase and have the transmission serviced on a 40k schedule. Lucas transmission additive makes it shift smooth. Lucas fuel additive keeps the injectors clean.


Favorite Features

Smooth ride, fast acceleration.

2001 Ford Expedition XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

A very safe and roomy SUV. Never have to worry when it snows, good pick up from a stop. About 14-16 MPG, can see 19 on a long trip. In general a well built SUV for a domestic.


Favorite Features

Excellent when you have 7 or less people to move around.


Suggested Improvements

poor design on exterior body, as water "collects" and promotes rust/rot on hood and lower door panels. Some have tranny problems, I did not.

Review

Bought mine with 35k miles on it and it's still going strong at 114K. Had to replace ball joints and other normal maintenance items but so far that is it. Tows 2 tons of firewood on my trailer with no problems. Cup holders everywhere, plenty of 12v jacks for gadgets. Roomy and high ride. Climate controls for second row. CONS: The 3rd row seat is neat to have but a pain to remove and store when it is not needed. Some times the accelerator will resist initial foot pressure when it's cold out and the bottoms of the doors are starting to rust (A Ford trait).


Favorite Features

Power, Space


Suggested Improvements

3 row seat that is stowable
