2004 Ford Expedition XLT Sport 4WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

We have reached 154000 miles now . This SUV has been almost flawless . It has been reliable not to have left us ever stranded . We have a 6 year old Daughter with special needs and now on hospice care. When we needed it for emergencys,trips to the hospitals 100 miles away 2 times a week . Run fast and hard at times of emergency to get her to hospital fast to save her life . Not one problem with the Expedtion . Hopefully the right people will read this who might have the same situation as mine and buy this great built suv. Thank you Ford !

2004 Ford Expedition XLT Rwd 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Had my expedition since 46K miles and now have 155k. Plan on driving her till she drops. Regularly maintained and have almost no unnexpected need for a mechanic. The only thing bad about her is the rear window wiper. The motor quit many moons ago. Windows roll up extremely slow for some reason. Heat and cooling work great and distribute wonderfully. Tows a 21 ft boat with ease. With regular maintenace hopefully, I'll get to 200k.


Favorite Features

Love the form of the vehicle. She looks great. Not just a suburban truck with no style. Love the height of her from the ground. With the right tires she's a super quiet travelor. I would definitely buy one again. Use her for sports tournaments and for camping. Love the secure feeling of being in a large vehicle with a wide base when traveling on a highway.


Suggested Improvements

Fix the motor wiper problem in the rear window. It is a COMMON problem. The running boards need more protection from rusting. Wish she had controls for the radio on the steering wheel like the pontiac transport. Arm rests for the driver for when using CC on long trips would be really nice.

2004 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer Rwd 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I purchased my 2004 Expedition used with 20000 miles on it in 2006. I have enjoyed this vehicle every mile I've owned it. Unfortunately the other day I was rear ended by a commercial vehicle doing 45 mph. It was the end of the Expedition, but the quality of this vehicle saved my life. I would recommend this vehicle 100 times out of 100! Looking for a new one as we speak.


Favorite Features

Safety first, comfort second. This has been the best vehicle I have ever owned. My 2nd Expedition and certainly not my last.


Suggested Improvements

Can't think of a thing.

Review

We bought our Expedition after having a Chrysler Town and Country mini van. I'll tell ya what.... I dont know why we didnt just buy a Expedition in the first place! Awesome truck. We have 3 kids and two Labrador retrievers that go everywhere with us. We have so much more room than we did with with the van. We can also tow our 29ft. camper no problem or our ATV trailer with three ATVs. We bought it with 122,000 miles on it and are going on 150,000 with no problems. We get about 15 in town and as high as 20 on the highway. I have a F250 superduty too, but its sure nice to have the option to take the comfortable truck now when we pull something. I'd recommend one to anybody. Good solid truck!


Favorite Features

Interior room, Horsepower, Quality built, Safety features, Great looking truck, Reliability.


Suggested Improvements

I honestly cant think of anything except possibly a little better gas millage, but its a V8, and a bigger SUV, so I'm still pretty happy with 18.5 avg. mpg.

Review

I bought this Expedition after saying I was done with Ford after 2 bad experiences with Ford vehicles in the past. I turned in my lease lemon 05 F150 in 06 and saw this Expedition on the lot and something told me to give Ford 1 more try. I'm glad I did. I bought it with 37k and 4 yrs later and with 76,XXX + miles it has been a great vehicle. Only issues I've had was a rear end whine and a sticky brake caliper. That's it. Both fixed under warranty years ago. It has been the best bad winter weather vehicle I've ever driven and that's saying a lot here in Michigan! It's made me a Ford Guy again. I think you should buy one.


Favorite Features

I like the fact that it sits up high, the fact that I can seat 8, the fact that I can tow 7500lbs, the fact that it has 9 inches of ground clearance so you can blast through those snow drifts or clear that raccoon that steps out onto the road.


Suggested Improvements

I know it's big and heavy but gas mileage improvements would be nice.
