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


Review

80,000 miles and have never had any mechanical problem. This is the way to travel for a large family (>4). Kids and wife love it. DVD system and premium stereo are great. Very comfortable seating, even in the third row. Long interstate trips allow a significant increase in gas mileage. No problem towing large (6500+ pounds) of boat. Have never been stuck in snow and often pulled others out of the ditches.


Favorite Features

Front seats that warm or cool at flip of a switch. I love sitting above the traffic and having great visibility. Wireless headsets for those watching the DVD system - and I can listen to the radio simultaneously. Surprisingly comfortable for a big vehicle.


Suggested Improvements

Improved gas mileage of course. But if you car pool, or take other large adults on trips, how could you complain.

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


Review

This is my 2nd Expedition and I love these trucks. I'm about to buy a 3rd one. This one has been a rock - totally dependable and solid. I feel safe on highway or in town. Had someone turn in front of me recently on a highway and the brakes did exactly what they were supposed to do - again, it's solid. Put the Michelin LTX/MS tires on it and the ride is great. Ford has treated me right all along - with the 1st one and the 2nd one. It stinks on gas mileage, but it does everything I need it to do. I love this truck.


Suggested Improvements

More storage compartments. My '99 had more storage. Better gas mileage would make this PRIMO!

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


Review

This vehicle is a true Friday afternoon lemon. Both front calipers defective at 39,000 miles - out of warranty I have to replace. Exhaust system at 49,000 miles - i have to replace. Now, transmission gone at 58,000 miles - I have to fix. Nothing is covered under warranty, Gas mileage has never been better than 12.5 MPG. When addressed to Ford that a transmission under minimal use should not need to be replaced at 58,000 miles, Ford "regrets this, but unfortunately, can't help us." Junk car, junk company, worst vehicle I have ever owned. I would highly dissuade anyone from Ford product based on this vehicle and my experience with the company.


Favorite Features

None.


Suggested Improvements

A transmission that goes more than 58,000 miles for starters. Or a warranty that is longer than 36,000 miles, when everything seems to start to fail.

Review

Purchased this used at 44K miles last year after having a 4 cyl Altima. First I would not go back to a car. Sitting this high is awesome. The truck itself is great and I have had no major problems. The tire monitoring system goes off when the car is cold but otherwise no major mechanical issues. DVD is great for my 3 kids and I added XM radio so this is like a home away from home. Owned the lemon Ford Tempo many years ago and vowed that I would never own a Ford again....maybe not a car but the SUVs are great. That is one thing that Ford is good at.


Favorite Features

Third Row Auto Fold down Rear Sensor DVD Agile on the road


Suggested Improvements

Nicer tires! Had to add some on mine. 0 to 60 could be a little quicker
