2004 Ford Expedition XLT NBX 4WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I bought this Expedition after saying I was done with Ford after 2 bad experiences with Ford vehicles in the past. I turned in my lease lemon 05 F150 in 06 and saw this Expedition on the lot and something told me to give Ford 1 more try. I'm glad I did.

I bought it with 37k and 4 yrs later and with 76,XXX + miles it has been a great vehicle. Only issues I've had was a rear end whine and a sticky brake caliper. That's it. Both fixed under warranty years ago.

It has been the best bad winter weather vehicle I've ever driven and that's saying a lot here in Michigan!

It's made me a Ford Guy again.
I think you should buy one.


Best Features

I like the fact that it sits up high, the fact that I can seat 8, the fact that I can tow 7500lbs, the fact that it has 9 inches of ground clearance so you can blast through those snow drifts or clear that raccoon that steps out onto the road.


Worst Features

I know it's big and heavy but gas mileage improvements would be nice.

2004 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 4WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

For anyone thinking about getting a Ford Expedition, don't think any longer!
If you have the need for a people mover that is bulletproof, reliable, and of high quality, this is the vehicle for you.... I have had this Ford since new and now have 225K miles on it without any major problems... Just have changed the oil every 5k-10k miles, and kept up with scheduled maintenance...thats it.
Have 3 teenagers into sports, hauling family for ski trips, etc - you get the picture...Once the wheels fall off this Ford, I wouldn't hesitate to get another one... hope this helps..

2004 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 4WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Have 85k on our expedition and it has been a great vehicle. This vehicle does it all. We tow our camper, plow the driveway, and load it up for vacation (storage box on roof, basket on rear hitch). You can't find a crossover that will be this versatile. Gas mileage is not great but try to pack a family in a prius. Had a few minor problems but I usually fix myself. Overall an excellent vehicle and plan on purchasing another one in a few years.


Best Features

Roomy, great in snow


Worst Features

Seating material in rear seats seams cheap

2004 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer Rwd 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

89,000 trouble free miles. We live 100 miles from nowhere and to travel 135 miles for shopping is common, this SUV has never let us down. Mpg is 18.5 and we drive 75 to 80 mph also pull a 18 ft enclosed trailer on occasions with no problems. The wife would like for me to get a new truck but this one will get new tires and keep going a few more years!


Best Features

Power is good and good mpg, A/C is also top of the line!


Worst Features

Put a diesel motor on the market for this SUV!

Review

I'm a die-hard ford guy and the expedition did not prove me wrong. Have ran it 3 years and 80k. Only has needed brakes and tires. Rear seat material seems to be a little dry rotted but with 2 boys it doesn't really matter. Always runs strong, wife loves it. Bought a new fusion but the wife will never give up her expedition. When we go on vacation, we put a bubble on the roof, rear basket on the hitch and she's good to go. Found a homeowners plow for the front and she even plows the driveway in the winter. Need to tow no problem. Have towed 5500 lbs piece of cake. Now looking at a camper to tow. You can't find a crossover with good mpg that will do as much.


Best Features

Will do whatever you need it to


Worst Features

Maybe a little better material for the rear seating
