2004 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer Rwd 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


This vehicle has been an excellent surprise. It is comfortable is every seating position, quiet and totally reliable. The surprise is that it consistently gets over 20 mpg in highway travel. As a daily driver in town it drops to 16+. The secret is in keeping the tires at 34 or 35 psi. The ride is not soft, but the handling is responsive. I also find that, though no dragster, it is not a slouch. I get to check it out in the home city of the X5 that is rated so highly. This machine is more comfortable, has more room, hauls and pulls more and has more power than the X5. Now, if it would just keep the resale value....

Best Features

Comfort for all passengers, capacity, excellent economy for the vehicle class. Safety ratings are unsurpassed in any class. This is my second Expedition and I expect this one to be as reliable as my excellent '98.

Worst Features

Quieten the compressor for the air suspension. Although it only run 30 seconds or less at start-up, it should be quieter.
