2004 Ford Excursion Eddie Bauer 4WD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


Review

I have four teenage sons and sometimes
tow a 5000lb boat. I bought the diesel
for fuel economy -- getting 16-22mph.
It took a short while to get used
driving this large vehicle, but now I
LOVE driving this car. Trips are a joy
with the entertainment package. NO new
car "little problems" (yet, at 3500
miles). I tend to buy new cars and keep
them for 10 years. I believe I made a
very good choice for the next 10. Also
very impressed with how solidly this
vehicle seems to be built, inside and
out. Paid a LOT, for this kind of
comfort/utility for next 10 years I
don't regret a cent. 4 wheel drive gets
me up/down drive I haven't used in years.


Best Features

Comfort -- leather seats are a you. My 75 yr old mother (bad back, legs) loves the car. Even though the seats are high, running boards and handles make it no problem to get in/out (even for my mother). Kids love DVD when we travel.


Worst Features

I beleive I made the right choice with the diesel engine. Fuel economy is excellent (imho) for a vehicle this size. I just wish I could get it to be a bit quieter. Inside is no problem, but it is undeniably a diesel when you're standing next to it.

2004 Ford Excursion Eddie Bauer 4WD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


Review

Eddie bauer Diesel excursion is a fine
truck.18k miles on 6.0 diesel has
gobs of power and torque and we get 21
mpg at 70 plus cruising and 10 plus
mpg when towering our 9000# toy
hauler. We have not had any issues
with the truck except for squeeking of
the rubber door seals when it was
new , these went away after a month or
so "worn in i guess" Excellent brakes,
added load riderite bags in rear for
extra stabiloity and leveling. Its a
big truck in the city


Best Features

6.o l diesel engine, 5 speed transmission. Brakes are great. Ride quality is really good for this size of truck. handling for a truck


Worst Features

better airfilter approach and implementation. enhance the interior "plusher" build them passed 2004

2004 Ford Excursion Limited Rwd 4dr SUV (6.8L 10cyl 4A)


Review

Every review in the automotive press I
read said the Excursion was simply
awful. I test drove one and
bought it the same day. For the first
year I used it in my limousine business
to haul folks to and from the airport.
A feat the Excursion excells at.
Unlike the mag testers I have no
problem with manuverability at all. I
would not expect this vehicle to handle
like a Porsche. I can not honestly
think of a single complaint. Possible
exception was trouble with the in dash
6CD changer & the monitor in the
entertainment package. Both were
replaced under warranty.


Best Features

Back up radar that beeps. Placement and features of tripmeter/mileage/avg fuel consumption computer.


Worst Features

On the top of the dual tailgate the fit and seal between that & the bottom of the window allows sand, dirt, water to collect. CD holder only holds 5 CD's and it has a 6 CD changer???

Review

This is a very nice car. I hope they
can improve it, though I do not think
that it needs many improvments.


Best Features

I Think that the DVD Player is the best because my kids do not bother me any more.
