1997 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV 4WD


I bought mine in 1999 and have 105K
miles. Traveled many times across the
U.S. and total comfort. Only have
replaced battery and brakes. I change
the oil ever 3K miles. Steering is a
little squirrely and feels like you
could loose control at times. I will
NOT let my 16 year old drive this
vehicle. My friend rolled hers and it
held up well. The electronic handpiece
for turning signals and lights have
been replaced twice. A little sluggish
when passing or quick acceleration
compared to my other GMC truck.
Overall I can't get rid of it and hope
to own it to at least 200K miles.

Best Features

Roomy and comfortable interior. Love the dual air and heat and style of the vehicle. 17" tires are great too! Have towed boat and 4 wheelers and it does great.

Worst Features

Electronic hand signal and a little less squirrely.
