Diesel is a great engine. Very
comfortable for family and pets for
long & short trips. Handles very well
for a truck of its size.

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


Review

I traded my mini-van in to get my
Excursion so I could feel like a man
again while driving my family with four
girls. What I didn't know was how
versatile this beast is. It seats even
8 adults comfortably. It tows almost
anything without trying. The ride is
very smooth. I took out the back seat &
folded the middle one down then camped
in it by myself for three days quite
comfortably. Here is the one that is
hard to believe. My trailer was out of
comission so I took off the front
wheels of my YFZ450 Quad and stuck it
in the back! I took pictures to prove
it and I'm sending them to a quad mag.
This truck is amazing.


Best Features

The backup sensor is awesome. You can parallel park or back up this monster so easily it is fun.


Worst Features

Sometimes a front sensor would be nice. you are so high up and the trunk/grill is so big it is hard to judge sometimes. Although if I need to pull in tight somewhere I just back in and use the senser!

experience.

If the third seat could lay flat into a bed it would be more convienent.

Review

I have a 2002 that I have replaced the
brakes on this vehicle 5 times in
120000 miles. They are terribly
undersized for the weight of the
vehicle and dealer denies knowledge of
any problem, even though I have talked
to other owners and mechanics, 100%
agree that Ford has a major design
problem with the brakes. We finally
replaced the brakes with racing brakes
that were cross-drilled and slotted to
disapate the heat (not a Ford product)
and know the brakes are working much
better.
