Love it, but worried about longevity...

2001 Ford Expedition XLT 2WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


29K miles, 1 mo. in shop. Drivers
side door rattle from day one.
Replaced panel & window track but
rattle is back & pass. side has same
problem. Steering's very tricky &
there's a clunk/pop from underneath car
when turning steering wheel. Replaced 2
steering shafts, pump & gear, still
having problems. Car idles rough.
#8 injector went bad & was replaced
along with coil boots. Has died several
times, wouldn't start & had to be
towed. Poor mileage, maybe related to
rough idling & injector problems? Feel
safe in it overall, but seems like Ford
could have made mine better!

Best Features

Roomy. Has power to pull boat or 2 ATV's with 14-ft. trailer. Being able to see traffic ahead! Auto- dimming rearview mirror, adjustable pedals.

Worst Features

Drastically improve steering - it can be dangerous! Work on rattles & stop using cheap plastic parts on the window tracks. Figure out rough idle, coil & injector problems & fix them! Improve mechanical quality or give a better warranty.
