2003 Ford Expedition XLT Value Rwd 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Awesome truck. Ive taken it all over Texas and Mexico, bought it new and now has about 100,000 miles. its been chewed up and abused by South Texas terrain but still stays faithful. seals still good after years off 105 degree weather. handles great in sticky situations (evacuating in high flood waters, hurricane winds, ect.) I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking in to it.


Best Features

EVERYTHING


Worst Features

Gas mileage, but its still pretty good for a vehicle of its size.

Review

Awesome Truck! Drives and tows excellent. Seat cooler/heater and AC/Heater work fast. I almost pi**ed my pants when I read the "No more Ford" review ;) If you read this Tom, re-set your driver/key remote settings (1 and 2) to your personal preferences and the "Side Mirrors will always adjust when unlocking" to your settings,,,LoL.


Best Features

Rear folding seats. Tow handling. Seat flexibility/adjustments.


Worst Features

Trailer Brake computer access.

Review

I bought my Expedition with 112,xxx miles on it and now has 130,xxx. I have not had any mechanical problems with it. The only 2 Problems I have had with it is the rear a/c makes a Clunking noise and the Paint on the back hatch started peeling off with is common my friend has a 2008 Expedition EL and hers is starting to bubble now to. I owned a 02 Mercury Mountaineer before this and the expedition beets it hands down. Feels much safer, and with being 16 years old my mom feels better about it to. Ride is very Smooth, parking is easy, driving is fun, I have been loooking to buy a new suv with less miles but have not found anything I like better, I will keep the expedition to good to give up!!!!

Review

Bought this SUV new. It's been a great vehicle. Very comfortable and very reliable. No major repairs. Has over 102,000 miles and still original brakes. Not even a light bulb replaced. Not a good city car (just too big), but what a treat for road trips. Bought a new, smaller SUV this year and just couldn't bring ourselves to sell the Expedition. Hwy mileage not too bad driven reasonably. We average 16. Can't find a used one anywhere around where we live. If you have one, keep it! BTW, if you replace your tires do not buy the Goodyear Wrangler RT/S. Ride is terrible compared to the Continentals that came on it. Should have taken them back.


Best Features

Front seats very comfortable. Love the keyless entry pad on the driver door. Cooled seats. Can get two dog kennels side by side in the back! Auto 4WD great in snow and ice.


Worst Features

Needs a power liftgate. Gate is very heavy and always slams shut. Better mileage of course, but this thing is huge. Engine power is great up to 65 or so, then absolutely nothing left. Use care if passing on a 2 lane!

Review

This truck is built for tough it tows a 9,000+ pound boat and trailer w/o any problems. Only have had one problem and that was a bad senor but besides that the truck has been nothing but great. Bought the truck with 44,000 miles and now it has 65,000 miles. The exterior has held up great and so has the interior with some wear on the front bottom of the leather seats but its not bad. Would defenitely but another expedition.


Best Features

roomines, great towing ability, fits anythting that you can think of bringing, very duable.


Worst Features

only thing that I can possibly think of is highway gas milage but it also a truck so cant really complain, but besides that nothing.
