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


Review

This vehicle is awesome! Has a very comfortable ride and plenty of room. Smooth ride and I love the independent suspension! I also love that third row seat, push of a button and it lays flat. Would recommend this vehicle to everyone who wants to ride in class!


Best Features

The third row seat. The independent suspension. The quietness of a smooth ride! Actually I love this whole vehicle!


Worst Features

Instead of having the door swing upward, get the door to swing open like the Ford Excursion, other than that, don't change a thing!

2004 Ford Expedition SUV 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

This is my 3rd Expedition. Had a 98 & 01. None ever require repair other than recalls (lug nut 98 & seatbelt 01). As much as we loved the first two, the 04 is more than 2x better. My wife loves driving it as much (or more) than her BMW 328 convertible. On recent trip from Dallas to Vegas, got 16mpg going (against the wind) and almost 18 on return. The only thing we miss is the cupholders in the dash which must have been sacrificed for the in-dash CD changer. Ford seems to have thought of everything. We especially like sliding center rear seat for granchildrens car seat. My wife doesn't like not being able to see outside temp.


Best Features

Sliding center rear seat. Larger side view mirrors. In dash CD changer. Power fold 3rd row seats.


Worst Features

In dash cup holders (ones in doors are useless while driving). Interior temp indicator.
