2003 Ford Excursion Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (6.8L 10cyl 4A)


This is the second Excursion I've
owned. The first had the V-10 and
really bad mileage. The 6.0 diesel is
very powerfull and gets GREAT mileage
for the size of the vehicle. On the
highway, I average 24 MPG at 75 MPH.
My Jeep Wrangler gets a paltry 15 MPG's.
We have had a few minor, but annoying
problems, particularly electrical ( A/C
looses power.. just shuts off ) but far
less than the problems we had with the
2000 V-10 ( also electrical, interior
lights would blink on and off everytime
it rained and it rains a lot in
FLorida ). Overall, this vehicle
represents the best value for people /
cargo around.

Best Features

Economy, power, comfort, and especially the "feel" of absolute safety, knowing you're the biggest, badest SUV on the road. My 5 foot, 105 lb. wife REALLY loves it ( must be a chick thing ;)

Worst Features

Get the electrical system right !! and redesign the window rims so that water doesn't pour in if you crack open a window in a rainstorm ( even 1/2 an inch ). Wind noise is annoying. Ford should keep building this vehicle, but ONLY offer it in the diesel. GREAT Mileage !!!!
