Summary:

Don't buy one

Faults:

6 of my coils had gone bad.

One of my spark plugs was spat out.

Twice my sensor lights went on.

Just recently I had a cracked manifold, and two weeks later my heater core started smoking inside the car, then a week after that, my emergency brake didn't work. I'm not a happy person at this point.

I've noticed that Ford makes their cars out plastic. I'm done; looking to buy a Nissan Murano.

General Comments:

Thought I was buying a vehicle that would be safe for my family, and be roomy enough for others, and would last me a few years without any major problems, but I was wrong.

Summary:

WOW, keep it up Ford

Faults:

I have a 4x4 Expedition 5.4L 154,000. I changed oil, engine trans and diff coolant, maintenance things, and tune up at 105,000.

The dealer replaced a cruise control harness (recall).

I just got a code for engine temp low, bad thermostat.

The truck is awesome; I tow, and I drive a lot of highway miles.

First problem with normal operation, only a failed A/C compressor at 95,000.

Still no major oil leaks, some seeping at transfer case. I will always buy Ford trucks. I think they make them the best and toughest.

Almost forgot; driver's leather seat has tear at the seam.

All hoses are still original.

That's pretty awesome, even Toyota is amazed. OK, the car line needs some help though.

General Comments:

I'd buy another if this one fails.

My cousin has the exact opposite opinion of his 2004 Expedition. He'd have gotten rid of it long ago if it had any value in it. Every time I see him, he complains about more things that have gone wrong or broken on that truck. He said he'll never buy another Ford, unless it is a Mustang of course.

I think these are just like any other vehicle, and require a certain amount of luck to have nothing go wrong with them. There are good ones and bad ones.

Summary:

I love my new truck!

Faults:

This is all very interesting to me. I recently bought a 2000 Eddie Bauer, and I must say that when I bought the truck, the air ride system was out and I spent 377.86 on rear coil springs for the truck to sit up right again.

The truck has been ran over with a fine tooth comb, and the only other detail that needs tending to, is the rear differential seal that's around 180.00, and that's parts and labor.

I have owned a GMC Yukon and also a Tahoe, both fully customized with everything but the kitchen sink, and neither ran as smooth as my Expo.

I plan on putting 26 inch rims on it with 6 TVs.

I do hear that getting the plugs changed on these vehicles is a real pain in the a** to do, and that the plugs have to be soaked for 2 hours before removing.

I only bought a Ford because I never owned one and simply wanted to try one out. I think out of all the SUVs that are of some size, the Expedition price wise is solid.

General Comments:

Currently at this time I have no issues, besides the ones mentioned above.

Summary:

Overall I still wouldn't trade it for anything

Faults:

My truck was wonderful when I first got it. Then one day p0401 code popped up. I had a hard time figuring it out. I replaced the DPFE sensor; the ends had burned up and clogged the lines.

Since then I replaced the hoses to it, and the sensor twice for a total of three. I learned that even though the part is new, it is can be bad. I haven't had any more problems with that.

I also had a problem with coolant leak at the back of the motor. It took a while to find, but I found three places that you should:

1. Look under the intake behind the alternator. There's a tube that goes in the back of the water pump. It leaks there.

2. Follow the tube to the back of the motor. There's a hose at the end. Check it, it will leak.

3. If the first 2 spots are OK, then check the intake gasket by a hose on the tube. It's on the passenger side. I had to replace all of these, but finally we were good once again.

General Comments:

This truck isn't very good on gas, but it's roomy and very comfortable.
