2003 Ford Expedition XLT Value Rwd 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
Bought this SUV new. It's been a great vehicle. Very comfortable and very reliable. No major repairs. Has over 102,000 miles and still original brakes. Not even a light bulb replaced. Not a good city car (just too big), but what a treat for road trips. Bought a new, smaller SUV this year and just couldn't bring ourselves to sell the Expedition. Hwy mileage not too bad driven reasonably. We average 16. Can't find a used one anywhere around where we live. If you have one, keep it! BTW, if you replace your tires do not buy the Goodyear Wrangler RT/S. Ride is terrible compared to the Continentals that came on it. Should have taken them back.
Front seats very comfortable. Love the keyless entry pad on the driver door. Cooled seats. Can get two dog kennels side by side in the back! Auto 4WD great in snow and ice.
Needs a power liftgate. Gate is very heavy and always slams shut. Better mileage of course, but this thing is huge. Engine power is great up to 65 or so, then absolutely nothing left. Use care if passing on a 2 lane!
