What are the magazine testers smoking

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


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???
