Great Family hauler/workhorse
By LeeB on


1997 Ford Expedition XLT 4dr SUV 4WD


We've owned this truck for 8 years now, bought it used, 2 years old. Two major problems, transmission replaced at 100K miles, replaced injection system on 4 ofthe 8 cylinders (one at a time of course - this is a common problem with this engine). Has otherwise been a good reliable family and stuff hauler. It's become expensive (gas) to use as an everyday commuter, but we'll keep it as a part-time haul around vehicle.

Best Features

Space, nice high seating position, good torque/power, comfortable. The cabin can be made really cold even on an August day in Florida.

Worst Features

11 MPG at $3.10 adds up real fast.
