1997 Ford Expedition XLT 4dr SUV


Well, I've had this truck for just over 3 years now and have tickled pink since day one. Don't get me wrong, there have been a few issues such as having to replace 4 spark-pugs and their respective ignition coils (250 a pop really stinks for the coils!), 2 tires back in 06, and most recently had to replace the right head on the motor because the #5 plug blew out of the head damaging the head to the point that it could not be repaired - only replaced! Boy that was fun! Other than that, I couldn't ask for a better truck. Yes, fuel economy stinks. 11.6 m/g avg since I bought it, but I still love it. Just turned 150,000 and hope to get anothre 150,000 out of it, if not more!

Best Features

Love the high ride height, 4wd works absolutely wonderfully, extremely comfortable inside in all of the seats, 5.4l pulls like a freight train.

Worst Features

Removal of that loud and vibrating air compressor/system, better quality leather on steering wheel.
