OMG IT's a Ford
By JCS on


1998 Ford Expedition XLT 4dr SUV 4WD


It has 130,000 miles on it and has been
reasonable for repairs. Some
quirkiness in the electronics such as
lights and chimes that won't
deactivate when they should. The
tranny is groaning a bit even after
service. 4wd system is excellent and
the ride is comfortable. Just don't
try an Indy car moves on the roadway
or you will roll the beast. The
brakes are expensive to replace.
Seems that everytime it needs a brake
job the rotors are toast. I am a very
easy driver on the vehicle. I paid
28,000 for it in 98, used with 12,000
miles. They don't hold their value
that well because according to
Edmond's it's only worth about 8,000
for trade.

Best Features

The 16 inch tires that cost less than the 17 inch tires. I like the rear zone heat and AC.

Worst Features

The third seat should fold down. The sound system is weak and the center console CD broke after one year. The rear liftgate weights a ton and the latch is tempermental. Oh and cut the retail price in half.
