Great - Beware of poor $2300 Engine Problems!

Vehicle2002 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 2WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
ReviewFormer 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 FeaturesPerfect size for the "big" needs of a travelling family with dogs. Great ride. Great look. Nice features.
Worst FeaturesFix the quality problems with the engine. Stick behind product. Improve seat heaters (driver side) longevity.
