2003 Ford Expedition SUV Eddie Bauer 4WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This is an excellent vehicle. Plenty
of power and great ride with rear
IRS. The DVD player is great for the
kids and is easily out of the way when
not in use. Steering wheel controls
for the audio and A/C are convenient
and safer than hunting around the
dash. Owned a Tahoe before this and
will never go back. The keypad on the
driver's door makes it easy to lock it
and leave it running to warm up on
cold mornings.


Best Features

Large mirrors with turn signals. DVD player. Steering wheel controls. Heated and cooled seats. Reclining outboard seats in middle bench.


Worst Features

None

Review

Comparing my 2001 Expedition to the
2003, the ride has signficantly
improved. The dashboard seems somewhat
boring and could be improved in the
future with enhanced looks and perhaps
more woodgrain. Seats seem to be a
little smaller and legroom on drivers
side seems tighter. All in all, I'm
happy to have the 2003 Expedition,
having previously had a 2001 Expedition
and a 1999 Navigator.


Worst Features

Larger front seating area by minimizing the size of the console and storage area. Also, improved dashboard appearance.

Review

This is the most disapointing vehicle
we have ever owned. It's not that it
is a bad vehicle, but for the money we
paid we had certain expectations, and
it just does not live up to them. The
rattles started at 250 miles and have
got worse since then, rattles in the
doors, roof, dash and seats. Trim
pieces that don't fit. After six
visits to the dealer some are resolved
and some never will be.
The good news is that there is a
partial fix for the doors, there is a
TSB from Ford, which consists of
replacing the door locks and door
seals, unfortunately it took 4 trips
to the dealer before they found the
TSB.


Worst Features

Way too much Arizona Beige, should offer mono kit for people who believe less is more. Navigation system requires separate 6 CD changer, and display doesn't show the name of the song playing. Climate control requires you to press a button to find the outside temperature.

Review

Very disappointed! Had the oil pan
gasket replaced at 3000 miles and now
at 6000 miles just had the main rear
seal replaced.Front tires constantly
dirty from brake dust(really poor
design). Climate control doesn't seem
to run as smoothly as my wife's 2002
Mercury Sable. I had a !998 Ford F150
Lariat and never had a problem with
it, wish I had it back.


Best Features

Good ride


Worst Features

Take care of the front tire brake dust problem, have a better quality control program
