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


Review

Other than the fuel mileage, it is by far the best truck/SUV out on the market.


Best Features

The fold down 3rd row seat, and the rear entertainment package.


Worst Features

Fuel mileage, and a less sensitive fuel system. I got bad fuel once and it turned on my service engine soon. 3 tanks later,it shut off. Fuel system is really just to picky it is a truck, simplify the system.

2003 Ford Expedition SUV Eddie Bauer Rwd 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

We bought our Expedition brand new and it has been great to us. Love everything about it. We had an Explorer before that we also liked but we needed a bigger car with the dogs and the boat. It is great for towing and long trips- so comfortable. I hope to drive it as long as it lasts- but I would not hesitate about getting another Expedition down the road.


Best Features

Comfort, third row seats. Easy to drive.


Worst Features

The seatbelt warning does not have to be so loud

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


Review

We love the vehicle. We have a family of 6 plus pets and it's got plenty of room for all. Rear air started making a noise at 68K miles, but otherwise it's been a very reliable vehicle. We'll miss this vehicle when it's time to trade.


Best Features

Comfortable third row seats. Smooth ride for a fullsize SUV. Great for towing. Very loud horn!


Worst Features

Need to improve gas mileage. Back hatch needs to be easier to open/close. Nice if the back windows rolled down. Even louder horn! Bigger tires with aggressive tread.

Review

Bought it brand new in 03. After about a year or two the autolock on the doors quit working, rear wiper was sticking, and plastic molding on doors was badly sunfaded. Had to replace brakes twice with less than 100,000 miles. Every once in a while when you start it a clould of smoke puffs out of the exhaust. When you start the car with the AC set to On you hear a loud "klunk". Just replaced front wheel bearing and still need to replace back one mechanic said. For not even having 100,000 miles on it we've done quite a bit to it. Looks sharp. Hoping to squeeze another 100,000 out of it. Don't know about getting another one. Engine is loosing it's "get up".


Best Features

Nice looking truck and interior.


Worst Features

Paint molding!

Review

Excellent vehicle. Only problem we have had was the rear air conditioning motor, which was covered by the warranty. We love this thing and it seems to love us and what we put it through. From dirt roads to snow and pulling our boat, it does it all, without difficulty. The only thing replacing our Ford Expedition will be another (EL Version), once we're free of payments for a few years.


Best Features

Cleans up nice, through all we put it through, once washed, she looks brand new. Good job Ford, see you in a few years.


Worst Features

The interior seat belt warning alarm could be a little less annoying (and quieter).
