2004 Ford Expedition XLS Rwd 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
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.
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.
I know it's big and heavy but gas mileage improvements would be nice.
