2003 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 5.4 Liter fuel from North America
This SUV has all the creature comforts that make it a real joy to drive
My only complaint is the excessive amount of front brake dust. My wife loves her 20" chrome wheels, but, within two days of washing it, they look black from all the brake dust.
The fuel injector went bad at 17,000 miles. I thought it may have just been clogged, but the dealership, which covered everything, said that it was bad. I'm still not for sure if it was just a fluke, or if it is a defect that I'm going to have to deal with again later down the road.
Although not the most economical car we have ever owned, it has tons of power and is very comfortable to drive.
The 3rd row seating that electrically folds down into the floor is great. An easy way to gain additional space for groceries, etc... Definitely a far better set-up than previous SUV's we have owned, with the heavy removable seats.
The leather interior and console package are fabulous. We had seriously considered switching to the Chevy Tahoe, but all things being virtually even, the interior of the Expedition won us over.
We have towed a 20 foot open bow boat many times with ease and can hardly tell we are towing it.
This Eddie Bauer package has many little bells and whistles, that although we did not originally care one way or the other about, we now really enjoy.
The memory seating, adjustable pedals, dual climate control, mirrors that automatically turn slightly down to aid during backing-up, backup sensors that beep and even turn down my wifes blaring stereo so she can hear them, the in dash six disk CD player, and four different strategically placed power plugs for t.v.'s, etc... Make this SUV great for traveling or day to day driving.
I cannot say enough about the convenience of the fold into the floor 3rd row seating.
If gas prices drop and the above mentioned fuel injector turns out to be a fluke, I will definitely hold on to this car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
