2000 Ford Expedition from North America


Don't buy one


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.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Are you kidding me? A 6 year old vehicle has a couple of minor problems (coils, heater core, parking brake) and spits out a plug, which is a very well known issue in the 5.4L engine and only costs $40 to fix... And you are saying it's not reliable and giving it a bad review LOL. These are practically maintenance items; it's not like the transmission went or the engine threw a rod.

I own one of these trucks and I admit the 5.4L had a couple of design flaws. All of these problems you mention add up to under $1000, which is very reasonable for a 6 year old vehicle. You cannot expect vehicles to run years and years without repairs; they are machines, and machines break.

You are correct sir.

Maintenance is required on any and every vehicle, especially if you buy used.

The second you buy a used car, change the oil and the spark plugs, flush the tranny and flush the radiator... should last a while if done so.

2000 Ford Expedition 4x4 from North America


WOW, keep it up Ford


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.

A 2004 Expedition is a completely different vehicle. Major redesign in 2003.

2000 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 5.4 Triton from North America


I love my new truck!


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.

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