1998 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV 4WD


Bought this one new in 1998. Excellent
vehicle other than leveling system wore
out and is expensive - compressor
695.00, front dealer only air shocks
1200.00 for both. Had two value coils
go out at $400.00 each. When they
start to go it is better to replace all
eight of them for about $1200.00 which
I did later. Seat leather and armrest
are poor quality and cracked at 75,000
miles. Steering wheel leather is cheap
and cannot be cleaned without rubbing
off color. Great engine still runs
like new. Four wheel drive and
transmission are perfect and never a
problem! Will buy another. Will drive
this one till it dies. Trade in value
is very low.

Best Features

Interior passenger room, Sound system, towing ability.

Worst Features

Many have been done on the 2004 models. Third room seat is a pain to remove and store. Leveling sytem components are expensive to replace, Higher grade leather throughout would be nice.
