I never had a problem on my expedition exept the brake rotors which were replaced at dealership. Other than that it's a good SUV.

Bought my 2003 Eddie Bauer in June of 2002. One of the first ones I guess. Brake rotors stuck and ruined pads before 27000 miles. I have had the same problem described above with air conditioning whenever run for more than 45 minutes to an hour on hot day. Numerous annoying squeaks coming from under headliner in back. Whenever I drive on long trips (over 3 hours) interior lights won't turn off and door ajar light stays on. Dealer refused to replace brakes and rotors under warranty. Did I mention air conditioned seats also don't work anymore either. Dealer claims nothing is wrong and that they work as designed. 50,000 miles at this point and it is gonna be replaced soon with anything, but a Ford.

If you hate your Expedition so much, why don't you write your own review and tell everyone about it, instead of trashing this one with your bad comments? That's not really fair to the owner, who obviously likes his/her Expo. Go write your own review.

People here are complaining about brake pads lasting only 27 thousand miles. I change mine every 6 to 8 months. I can only imagine how worn those brake pads are when the dealer inspected the vehicle. I usually replace them when they are worn half way. If you wait for them to be worn out to the rivets you will also mess up your rotors. Then you will have to cut those rotors and put new pads as well. I have gotten to 75 k miles before replacing my rotors on the vehicle. I even neglected the brakes a few times during those 75 k miles. If you don't want to pay for brake service do it yourself. Go to an autozone and by the pads with the lifetime warranty. As long as you don't go before 6 months they will usually give you no problems. Disc brakes are easy to do, the ones I hate doing are those rear drums.

What I would like to know is this; are these people that complain about the brakes and rotors going driving the vehicle like a 2.5 ton SUV or a 1 ton car? There is a different driving style for the larger vehicles. It may feel like a small vehicle on the road, but on the scale it is some what of a heavy weight. I have owned many many Fords and I loved each and every one of them. In fact I am adding this comment as I am currently negotiating a deal for a use 2003 Expedition, and I am sure I will love this one if I get it, and you can be assured I will write a review if the deal goes through.
