After 44,000 Miles...


2005 Ford Excursion XLS Rwd 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


After 44,000 miles and 3 1/2 years, we still own our "Big X" land yacht. Yes, it's big and no, it's not a politically- correct hybrid sub-compact, but what a vehicle. In my experience, the hype about the gas mileage in the V-10 is misinformation; I've been averaging 10 to 11 mpg in town and 15.4 on the highway. The ONLY problems I've had with this vehicle are with the brakes. I've had the brakes done twice in 3 1/2 years; it hasn't been to the shop for anything else, other than oil and filter changes.

Best Features

The room and comfort level; carry eight people in comfort, my daughter reclines and watches movies in the rear while my wife and I listen to the music of our choice. We and our friends can go to dinner together and save gas that might be used with two or three of us driving; conservation anyone?

Worst Features

Start making them again!
