1998 Ford Expedition XLT 4dr SUV 4WD


Loved this vehicle until electrical problems started that dealership had trouble fixing. Then we found out the hard way that Ford Expedition and trucks in '98 and '99 have major engine defects involving the cylinder heads. Now needs new engine. Ford won't acknowledge but it is common knowledge.

Best Features

Pulled horse trailer well. Lots of room. Nice pick up. A/C, cup holder/etc, auto entry.

Worst Features

Replace engine with one defect-free. Have better information for mechanics to identify the many electrical problems -- back windshield wiper, front windshield wipers - separate problem, died completely when turned on radio, odometer that twirled around occasionally w/cruise control not working, etc.
