Sorry It's Gone
By Justice Gustine on
2005 Ford Expedition XLS Rwd 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)
Just turned in ole' Blue to the lease return. It was my 2nd Expi and a big improvement from the 2000 with independent rear suspension that gave it sure footed handling and 4 wheel disc brakes that stopped better. Very powerful and never disappointed me when fast acceleration was needed. Never broke down. All I did was change the oil and pay attention to warning lights. The family is leaving the nest now and there is no longer a need for a spacious SUV. Blue was an XLT Sport 2wd, that gave it some two tone trim, tubular running boards, fog lights, limited slip, stiffer roll bar and a few other highlights. Will always remember the big comfortable ride.
Safety items! The back-up sensors, cabin mirror, side curtain airbags, tire pressure warning lights. 5 Disc CD never jammed or skipped. Cloth seats were very firm, unlike the living room couch feel of a friends Avalanche. Power adjustable brake & gas pedals. Sharp appearance.
Must have been too early for an iPod line in on the CD deck. A way to keep brake dust off the alloy wheels so they are not hard to clean.
