We purchased our Expedition at a Honda Dealership where we had taken our 2001 Honda Passport for an oil change, We had just returned from a fishing trip to the Sierra's and were very disappointed with the Passport's comfort zone, We purchased the Expedition with 30,000 miles on it; it had been traded in by the company who initially purchased it. We installed a trailer hitch and have pulled a 26 ft travel trailer from Orange County California to Havasu, Arizona with no problems. While I would have preferred a little more horsepower I was very pleased in its performance climbing over mountain passes. It never heated up even while running the air conditioner and climbing. Comfort was great.

I used to drive a Jeep Wrangler and I
was all about the 4 wheel dirve lift 35
inch tires all that. Well I sold it and
got me an 04 Expedition and its great,
not only did I get it for $24700 its
proved very useful. Ive slept in it for
days when it wouldnt stop raining while
camping out. It was about 10 grand less
than a tahoe as well. with the same
options, well it has one more the
keypad on the door I leave my keys in
my cars all the time but now I can lock
it. I tend to loose my keys thats why I
do that, and where I live not too many
cars are stolen. But all in all I love
my new expedition, my only regret is
not getting the 4 wheel drive.
Redesigned last year, the Expedition offers few changes for 2004. Option packages and trim levels have been slightly revised, and in some cases, renamed. The XLS replaces last year's XLT Value trim level, while a new NBX trim level replaces the FX4 off-road package. And there is now an XLT Sport trim level. A tire-pressure monitoring system is now standard on XLT, XLT Sport and Eddie Bauer, while the previously standard limited-slip rear axle is now an option.
