Review of the 2002 Ford Expedition

  • One major flaw, namely twitchy steering, turns us off the Expedition. Twitchy steering is not something you want in a tall 5,000-pound vehicle.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Excellent interior design and comfort, wide-ranging versatility, impressive hauling capabilities, available rear-seat entertainment system, great crash-test scores.

  • Cons

    Still might be too big for some garages, bias toward on-road comfort hurts off-road capabilities, sloppy handling when pushed.

  • What's New for 2002

    For 2002, the Expedition gets Ford's BeltMinder audible warning system to remind buyers to buckle up. The XLT can be equipped with a rear video entertainment system for the first time. Eddie Bauer models can be done up in Premier Group packaging, which includes monochromatic exterior paint, second-row captain's chairs, moonroof, 17-inch alloy wheels, foglights and illuminated running boards.

2002 4x4 "5.4l" expedition

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Ford Expedition XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

We bought our expedition used. With 74,000 miles on it. We have all the spark plugs sleeved so we dont have to worry about it. It cost us $850. It runs like a top. Its a 5.4. So mileage is terrible. It broke down once only. Fuel pump. But at 130,000. I wont complain. Everyone wants to buy it from us. Not for sale says my son. So my wife drives a different car. I bought a 4 banger. And the expedition will be there as an extra or when needed.....next to my 02 f150 harley davidson. Great vehicles so long as u maintain them. Like any other vehicle.




Great vehicle!

Vehicle: 2002 Ford Expedition XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

Bought this vehicle in 2007 with 70,000 miles on her. Great truck...nice fit and finish. Very solid feel. Drives very much like a truck and not like a car. Can be a bit hard to maneuver in small parking lots. Has been very reliable though we really haven't driven it much. Truck has just over 90,000 miles now 3 years later. Nothing has broke...no fluid leaks. This is the first vehicle I've owned with this kind of mileage that didn't leak oil or tranny fluid.

Vehicle: 2002 Ford Expedition XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

I am happy with my vehicle. It was used and purchased for less than $5K. I wanted a Lincoln Navigator, but settled for the Expedition. I found that I made the best decision! Gas mileage is not that bad. If you buy a 2002 Expedition, just make sure it is mechanically sound. My truck is definitely Ford tough.




My second expedition

Vehicle: 2002 Ford Expedition XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

I finally found a vehicle that I truly love to drive. The quality is outstanding. You just feel that your are driving in something that is put together right. Mine has the 5.4L and the power is outstanding. Sure it won't get 20 miles to the gallon, but I knew that when I picked it out.

Vehicle: 2002 Ford Expedition XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

Vehicle driving is comfortable, it is very good in winter conditions. However since the vehicle was purchased new, gas mileage has averaged 10 miles to the gallon. If I wasn't retired and still working the increased mileage and cost of fuel would be prohibitive.




Done

Gas has gotten too expensive for this truck. Also parking it in most lots is a challenge.
