2003 Ford Expedition SUV XLT Value Rwd 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Awesome truck. Ive taken it all over Texas and Mexico, bought it new and now has about 100,000 miles. its been chewed up and abused by South Texas terrain but still stays faithful. seals still good after years off 105 degree weather. handles great in sticky situations (evacuating in high flood waters, hurricane winds, ect.) I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking in to it.


Favorite Features

EVERYTHING


Suggested Improvements

Gas mileage, but its still pretty good for a vehicle of its size.

2003 Ford Expedition SUV XLT Value Rwd 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Other than the fuel mileage, it is by far the best truck/SUV out on the market.


Favorite Features

The fold down 3rd row seat, and the rear entertainment package.


Suggested Improvements

Fuel mileage, and a less sensitive fuel system. I got bad fuel once and it turned on my service engine soon. 3 tanks later,it shut off. Fuel system is really just to picky it is a truck, simplify the system.

Review

So far (knock on wood) this truck has been fantastic. Gas mileage is horrendous at 14/18, but everything else is superb. Interior is extremely spacious, towing is excellent. I love this SUV.


Favorite Features

Interior, towing.


Suggested Improvements

More power for the 4.6 l engine. I've seen the Mustang with 300 hp out of this engine, why not the bigger vehicle?

2003 Ford Expedition SUV XLT Value Rwd 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I love this truck. Bought it used in 2005 with 30,000 miles. After 2 1/2 years and adding 33,000 miles, had to replace the alternator...that's it. Fully loaded with passangers and luggage, and pulling a 20 foot ski boat; it still gets almost 17 mpg (4.6L engine). Love the 4 wheel disc brakes. Has a very tight turning radius, very easy to park.


Favorite Features

Too many to list.


Suggested Improvements

Slighty better gas mileage

2003 Ford Expedition SUV XLT Value Rwd 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Bought new. Was looking for large SUV versitile enough to haul people and stuff with good value. No major complaints, handles well. Very comfortable and great for long trips.


Favorite Features

Interior room fits 8 comfortably. Easy 3d row seat conversion. Best in class turning radius, which is a big deal for trips to the mall.


Suggested Improvements

Underpowered/sluggish engine. Spartan climate controls. Developed a couple mysterious rattles.
