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


We have owned Tahoes, Expeditions, Land Cruisers and currently also have an LR3. Our 04 Eddie Bauer Expedition has been an excellent performer. It's comfortable to drive and the ride is way nicer than the previous suspension set up. The additional power offered by 05s would be welcome but the 2 valve motors are adequate. This SUV just eats up the miles on road trips. Ours has been extremely reliable. We have 56,000 miles and I took it to Firestone telling them to replace the brakes...I get a call an hour later saying there's 50% pad left and the rotors look fine.

Best Features

The DVD and GPS system both work great. When we've needed it, the 4 wheel drive is flawless and easy to use.

Worst Features

The seat belt warning buzzer is hard core. It's effective but annoying as hell! How about something more subtle? And, don't let anyone tell you about gas mileage. People who buy a 5,500lbs 4x4 and expect anything better than 16mpg should select another rig.
