Good work truck
By Casey on
2001 Ford Expedition XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
Purchased in 2004 with 37k now has 81k and is still running strong. I use it for work and decided to go with the Expedition over a pick up to accomodate the family. With the 3rd row seat out and the back bench seats folded down, I have plenty of room for work gear. The kids perfer the Expedition over the minivan for long trips. The engine eats oil.. no leaks or emission problems, just need to check the dip stick a little more often than other trucks I've had. Vehicle has a nice ride but is still a truck. Self leveling system motor is loud and seems to adjust randomly, even when the truck is off.
Plenty of interior room, especially for the driver. Reliable so far at 81k. Good solid truck.
Eats oil and had to replace a few coils recently. Mechanic mentioned the front ball joints go on these trucks, no problems there yet.
