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

Review

Our '04 Expy EB with 4wd has been a great ride so far. We have been trouble and maintenance free and after 2.8 years of ownership @ 45k miles, we are very happy with it. It's a great SUV for long road trips, carrying large items, easily configurable for cargo, carries 8 comfortably for short trips and 6 for long trips. This truck has been reliable and safe. Am glad I did not invest in an extended warranty. We are still running on the original Contis and expect to get them to 50k or maybe 60k. It has not been in the shop for anything besides normal 5k maintenance and operating costs are minimal except for gas costs. The fuel costs are offset by carrying capacity for people and items.

Favorite Features

- Air-conditioned seats in TX are a bonus feature - Fold down 3rd row is best in this class for seating & ease of use - Ride, handling, steering & turning circle, much better than expected - Long list of safety features - Appearance, clean design - Versatility for people & items - 4wd set-up.

Suggested Improvements

- Raise 2nd row seats a 2", they are a little low - 5 speed tranny for improved mileage - Sub-woofer annoys 3rd row passengers, it should be mounted under 2nd row seats with standard speakers in 3rd row - Perhaps offer a clean-burning diesel?
