1998 Ford Expedition XLT 4dr SUV 4WD


I like the Expi but in 12K miles I
don't love it. In the 18 months we've
owned it (lease turn-in), the switch
that controls the turn signals and
BRAKE LIGHTS has broken, the "brake"
warning light and the "check engine"
light have both come on. Plus one of
the rear windows severely bends weather
stripping when you roll it up. The
shop couldn't tell me why the brake
light came on and I'll have to go to
the dealer ($$$) for the and the check
engine light as it gave the local auto
parts sensor reader conflicting
messages. I have the 17" wheels and
4x4 options which may make the vehicle
too tall for city folks with a baby
like us.

Best Features

You will definitely feel safe, enjoy the premium sound system and be ready for anything (tow package, 3rd seat, 4x4 and all wheel drive). Very easy to change the oil. Transmission is well tuned. Plenty of power in 5.4L.

Worst Features

Deliver better reliability/durability from electric components. Examine how there can be conflicting messages from the sensors.
