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


Review

The only thing I liked about this truck was the warning sensors for how close you are to objects when you back up. Other than that, I don't see myself buying another Ford Expedition (or Ford Anything) for a long time. I'm glad I bought it - Easier to get rid of it when you own it. I've only had it for about a year and it feels like it's going to break down already. So many things squeak and there are so many interior noises that it makes the truck seem cheaply made and unsafe. Ford does have a wide variety of models to choose from but I'd have to guess that one model is as bad as the next. On a positive note - the horn works well?


Best Features

Warning sensors for backing up - they chime more and more as you get closer to an object. They do pick up almost any object too - which is nice. Ford even made it so the stereo automatically lowers so you can hear the chime too - nice touch.


Worst Features

Too much to list! Start with better parts and a new plant. Hire workers that care about quality.

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


Review

I've had my Expedition for only 8 months now and I love it! I like it's solid feel and roominess. Living in Hawaii, my family and I have been up to the mountains and down to the sea with complete satisfaction! Plan to keep it for a long time!


Best Features

Massive cargo space, solid but comfortable suspension.


Worst Features

Stereo system could have been better. They could've used less plastic and more metal on exterior body.

2004 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 4WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Outside appearance is nicer than the older style, sits lower and feels tighter on the road. It does, however have it's share of rattles and squeaks, something totally unacceptable for a vehicle in this price range. Specifically, the dash, rear window, and tha passenger door window vibrates at highway speeds. Can't tell you what Ford uses on the front brake pads but it's garbage! The brake dust on these trucks is brutal! Funny,they don't acknowledge it as being a problem. I changed pads with 10,000 miles, how bad is that? Finally, the middle row seat needs to recline with the outter two. Ever have kids fighting over seats Ford?


Best Features

Power fold down rear seats are great. Heat and air cooled seats, nice touch!


Worst Features

Make a $46,000 vehicle ride nice and quiet and tighten up a bit on the noises...sheeeesh! Brake Dust, Brake Dust, Brake Dust,,,get it?

Review

Our Expedition Has been the most comfortable auto ever to drive or ride in as a passenger. We have had to drive from Fl. to Maine quite a few times. Never have had any troubles even when we had 700 + miles on black ice and snow. The manuvering into parking etc. have never been a problem, all like a charm. We will trade for the same type and model again.


Best Features

Riding so very comfortable, the suspension is terrific. Very pleasing to the eye interior and exterior.Handles so well, very good vision and like the safety of sitting so high. The driving lights are excellent. We rate this as excellent


Worst Features

The only improvement I can think of is the second row seats to fold down into the floor.
