Love it and would buy it again

Vehicle2001 Ford Excursion XLT 2WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)
ReviewI bought my excursion new and have
loved it. I had 2 suburbans before and
liked them also. But really wanted the
diesel engine. We have the 7.3 in our
F-350 crewcab and loved the power and
mileage. The kids love the space and
the reclining 2nd seat and the
powerpoints and rear stereo control. I
thought it had too much backend sway,
so we added a leaf or two to the
suspension in the back and one in the
front & larger tires. Now it handles
great. Ford should have stiffened the
rear suspension to handle the load it
is meant to carry. Went to Yellowstone
a month after we had it and got 17-19
mpg with it, and that was a lot of
Best FeaturesThe room for the driver, my husband is 6"4". The stereo for the kids, so they can listen to music separately. Pretty happy with most everything.
Worst FeaturesWould like longer armrests on the captains chairs for tall people. Would like the option, if we bought one again, to have the lift gate in the back instead of the 3 doors(like on the Suburbans). It should have stiffer stock suspension, don't be so worried about the ride. It's a 4x4.
