2003 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer Rwd 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

2003 is a completely different Expedition than the 2002. The fold down seats, the handling, the turning radius is far superior to any other SUV. I did extensive reasearch, lucky the the 2003 came out just in time because I would not have bought the 2002. I was close to buying the Toyota Sequioa, but the style and the features are better in the Ford PS. Never owned, or ever thought about buying a Ford vechile. Glad I did. GO for it


Favorite Features

Turning radius, the entertainment center, fold down seats, and air conditioned seats.


Suggested Improvements

The wireless headsets for the DVD is NOT avaiable in the early 2003 models. Was told it was, but it will be available for later in the year. I am out of luck.

Review

I purchased the new 2003 Eddie Bauer Expedition and am very impressed with it. It handles great, has a lot of room, all the “toys” work well, it is fun to drive, comfortable, quiet ride and looks great. So far I would consider this vehicle the best I have ever purchased (and I have had more than my share of them).


Favorite Features

The way it rides and handles, the power rear seat and the overall quality.

Review

I had been shopping for a Cadillac Escalade but the power folding third row seat ads on TV caused me to stop at the Ford dealership. I test drove a Laser Red fully-equipped Eddie Bauer and ended up buying it. It's got more equipment than the Cadillac, for a lot less $$$. I love the ride, and the steering and braking are in a different league from the GM products.


Favorite Features

Power fold third row seats Heated AND cooled seats Navigation system Braking and steering are amazing for an SUV Adjustable pedals Storage space Sliding middle seat


Suggested Improvements

Would like left and right AC controls for driver and passenger; would like a supercharged engine option.

2003 Ford Expedition XLT Premium 4WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

The ride, fit and finish and features are much, much better than 1997 Expedition. The six middle and third row seats are all comfortable for adults and all have 3-point belts, and seats can split and fold flat. External rearview mirrors are HUGE. Rear DVD entertainment system is a hit with kids and comes with 2 wireless headphone. Kids can listen to movies while you listen to radio. Unlike other small cars, rear DVD does not eat into needed head room. Truck looks and feels much more solid and bigger than before. Handling is improved greatly. You can toss this 6000 lb truck around the bends without all the body roll and tire screetching from 97.


Favorite Features

Side mirrors, rear DVD, safety cannopy, fold-flat third-row seats, fit/finish.


Suggested Improvements

An in-dash, big scree GPS navigation system.

Review

THIS IS MY 3RD EXPLORER SINCE 1991, AND THE 2002 EDDIE B IS THE BEST. THE RIDE THE QUALITY, EVERYTHING ABOUT THE VEHICLE IS EXCELLANT. LOOKED AT THE TRAILBLAZER, DROVE IT AND DECIDED TO STAY WITH EXPLORER.


Favorite Features

Review

I've got a 1999 Expedition, I still love to drive it. The all wheel drive makes this beast corner very well. Highway mileage is very good for the triton v8. If you live in a true city area, you might want to shy away from this vehicle because traffic jams eat up the gas quickly. Stop and go traffic is rough on a 4000+ lb vehicle. Any other drivers, suburbs or otherwise will be glad they no longer have to fear for their lives in the winter, it handles like a dream. Just slow down, you can go much faster than you can stop. To those critics who drive a euro sports sedan - don't kid yourself, your car is no friend of the environment either.


Favorite Features

Roomy, incredible cornering feel -- give it gas coming out of a corner with all wheel drive and you feel like you are on rails. The engineering on the suspension is very very good for cornering


Suggested Improvements

exterior window trim could be sturdier -- on uneven, straight on driving it "bucks" a little too much where a 2+ inch drop off occurs.
