1998 Ford Expedition XLT 4dr SUV 4WD


Being 6'4" tall, I was not able to find a
midsize SUV that didn't lack headroom,
legroom, width, or have the gear shift
digging into the side of my right thigh. My
'98 Expedition is the most comfortable, most
rugged vehicle I have ever owned. Though
huge, it is not overly "truck-like" in handling,
it is powerful, roomy, unstoppable on the
minimum maintenance roads I drive in
Northern Minnesota. It rules.

Best Features

ROOM -- Head, legs, shoulders...even in the back! POWER -- nothing can stop it. Comfort, reliability, looks, towing capability, interior layout, 4WD options (A4wd, 4hi, hlo, 2wd)

Worst Features

Gas mileage is terrible (12-14 mpg), but I knew what I was getting when I bought it. The inside rearview mirror is a bit short and I find myself constantly making minor adjustments. Washerfluid sprayer freezes often.
