2002 Ford Expedition SUV Eddie Bauer 2WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Former Explorer owner, upgraded to Expedition. Very good ride; design, comfort, size. Mediocre/expected gas mileage. However, after 40K, the right cylinder head cracked, and began leaking oil. Repair of $2300 out of pocket was followed up with complaints. Initially Ford repair shop indicated rebate of $1500, but after several weeks, their "mistake" was corrected to $700 rebate. BAD taste in mouth for Ford's quality, as more investigation indicates that this is a "known Issue" with the Triton V8's from this period. Don't know if it's been fixed or not, but any time you have major repairs before 50K, beware!


Best Features

Perfect size for the "big" needs of a travelling family with dogs. Great ride. Great look. Nice features.


Worst Features

Fix the quality problems with the engine. Stick behind product. Improve seat heaters (driver side) longevity.

Review

This is the largest vehicle I have owned and my wife and I really love it! Before purchasing it, I read reviews like these and with Ford truck's word- of-mouth reputation, I purchased one. I haven't regretted it. I use it mostly on long trips. It is fun to drive and I feel safer on the road. Mine is a 2-wheel drive, but it handles great in rain or snow covered roads. Replaced the drivers heated seat element already and the passenger side is getting weaker. $600. dealer cost for one seat repair! Out of warranty, but the dealer paid half. Replaced the brakes, but no mechanical problems yet. Would buy another one!


Best Features

All the Eddie Bauer accents, the great "red" color, its driveability. Its large size is great in traffic. Heated seats help my wife's back problems, which she uses year round. Great AC, brakes & power steering. TV screen in rear is great for traveling passengers. Mirror turn signals.


Worst Features

Even before I bought it, I knew gas mileage would not be good. It isn't. But the trade-off is worth it. Wish I had the '03 folding third seat. Interior dash fit could be better. Radio controls not on the steering wheel are missed. I think the newer models address any shortcomings.

car is the fuel economy.

Review

This car is wonderful to drive. It is
much better than the Honda Passport
that I owned before this one. The gas
guzzling is the only down-fall. The
driver window pops really hard
sometimes when rolling it up. Other
than that the car is super and fun to
drive.


Best Features

controls in back seat to control air and heat and also the radio


Worst Features

Improve on fuel economy. Make front passenger seat electric. Also needs side mirrors that will fold in.

Review

The most comfortable of all the SUV's
that I have owned to drive. This
includes Suburban, Yukon, and
Explorer. Roomy, quiet, smooth and
comfortable. Only downside -- horrible
gas mileage with the 5.4. Averaging
13.9 mpg --- with the Suburban 5.7 I
got around 16.3 for similar driving.
If Ford could get the economy up a
little this would be the best SUV
going. Now it's great -- but drinks
too much fuel.


Best Features

Comfortable seats, convenient controls, great ride smooth handling.


Worst Features

Better fuel economy, put good tires on it to begin with, OEM tires rated B for traction is ridiculous on a vehicle that retails for 40K
