1998 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

I hesitated to write a review for fear of jinxing myself but my EXP has been a great truck. Bought new in late '97. Now has 112k on it. Other than routine maintenance and replacing a few seals here and there, nothing major has gone wrong. I love loading up the family in it, putting big dogs in the back and heading out on a road trip, confidently. The biggest improvement I made was to put Michelin LTXs on it. The stock Goodyears were junk. It's a totally different ride with the Michelins.


Best Features

Size, reliability, comfort, stereo, looks. Best car I've ever had. Don't want to trade it ever.


Worst Features

Gas mileage. 13-14 mpg is tough to handle at the pumps. More hp. I don't like the fact that the truck has to downshift constantly on a hilly interstate. This shouldn't be an issue at 75 mph.

1998 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV


Review

Love this vehicle. Bought it almost 2 months ago and it has become our #1 car out of 3. I originally bought it for myself, but my husband has come to love it. It's now his. There's four in our family, and my husband sits in the driver's seat, I'm in the passenger, our son in the second row, and our daughter in the third row. It's a great car. I would surely buy another!


Best Features

Leather interior: luxury feel, 6 CD changer.


Worst Features

Roomier third row: anyone over 3 feet will have to scrunch up to sit back here, but good for the kids.

Comfort and reliability.

13 miles to gallon with these high gas prices; expensive to maintain. Only driven on weekends for pleasure.

Review

I like the quick pickup - smooth handling and the comfortable ride - for an SUV.


Best Features

The leather seats wear and clean well. Sound system with CD changer is really nice. Third seat pops out easily and the 2nd folds down to carry a lot of stuff.


Worst Features

Third row seating is practical only for children or very small adults.
