I have a 5.4L XLT that just passed 160K. Hardly any problems at all except for the air suspension needed to be worked on. Engine, transmission, and suspension are solid and runs great considering the mileage. Very roomy and can fit lots of people.

The only bad part of owning this vehicle is the gas consumption.
Mine is the 5.4 Triton XLT and I have been the owner from 40,000 miles till a little over 100,000 now.
If you need a solid vehicle with lots of room inside that tows a boat with no problems than you couldnt ask for more.
Much more room inside than my friends Yukon and no road noise like the Pilot.
Michelin tires make it smooth as silk on the highway.
Its a little clumsy around town but what do you want from 6000 plus pounds.
Ford should be proud of these vehicles.
Mine has no rattles, none and cloth interior looks like new which is amazing at near 10 years old.

I loved my expedition up until it left me stranded on a major highway due to a spark plug popping out!! And it is not an easy fix let alone how costly it is. Ford is aware of the major defect in these transmissions but will not correct the problem. To correct the problem the entire head must come off. Also if it is #4 spark plug than you must remove front of vehicle body to get to it properly. What a Joke!! Stay away from these vehicles. It will happen to you. They say the average mileage when this happens is 95000 miles. Mine has 94500. Imagine that. It is junk! Buyer Be Ware!
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.
