2001 Ford Excursion Limited V10 from North America
Monster truck that is fun and well worth the gas mileage
AC compressor $600.
Running board light sockets all had to be replaced. Whoever owned the truck previously changed the bulbs, but didn't seal the sockets and lamps correctly, so water got in them. I wanted them to work, so I paid 300 to fix all four.
I love this truck. I have no family or kids, and I don't haul or move anything, but I wanted one so bad.
I bought it in 2008 when gas peaked at four bucks a gallon, and got a steal on it; four grand below retail, and it's in excellent shape.
It's extremely comfortable when you're on a long road trip, so I normally have to stop every so often, so I don't fall asleep. Yes it's like sitting on a couch.
I have the V-10; gas mileage is horrible, 11 combined city and highway, but I've seen it get as high as 15 one time. It's well worth the gas mileage for everything you enjoy and get out of it.
Winter driving is great; it does pretty well, even on ice, but when it slides, it slides, but anything will somehow slide on ice. I feel very safe in it, and it kind of makes you feel like you're completely safe on the road.
When I have to scrape ice off the windshield or hand wax it, you need a steppy stool or small ladder, but once again it's well worth it.
This monster also has a lot of power and is an excellent highway cruiser. I will keep it forever.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
