#575 of 1710 The New Expedition
Dec 09, 2001 (7:42 pm)
Just signed on for the first time tonight. I went by my local dealership last night to check on a new Expedition. The word over there is the new Expedition is due out June 2002. According to the sales rep. this is going to be more than just a basic makeover. Ford is planning to take the new look and features from the 2002 Explorer and role it into the new Expedition. This is the first and only time I have heard this information. Is anybody hearing this same thing or am I peddling old gossip?

#577 of 1710 Ref Msg 553 Vibrations at Idle
Dec 11, 2001 (4:00 pm)
To give everyone an update on my vibration at idle problem. After calling the Ford Customer Relations number and them calling my local Ford Service Supervisor, my advisor called me back and said come in for a free 52 point safety inspection. Did that and now they say the motor mount SSM is applicable to my problem and even though my 98 Expy is out of warranty they're going to replace them for free. They're doing that tomorrow. I let you know if my vibrations go away.
#578 of 1710 limited slip diff
Dec 12, 2001 (12:50 pm)
Is there someway to determine if the limited slip differential is working. I have a 4x2 Expy and it seems to get a lot or rear tire spin on pavement which is barely wet. This happens even with minimal acceleration. Wheels spin to the point I have had trouble getting out of a drive through carwash - no exaggeration.

I recently purchased my fourth Ford SUV. I have owned every generation of Explorer, which include my most recent purchase of an 2002 Explorer to accompany my 2001 Expedition all E.B. My most recent previous Explorer had 133K miles on it and I only did the tuneup at 105K, and oil changes every 5k. My 2001 Expedition has been the same and I have just slightly over 20K miles on it. I cant wait for the 2003 to hit the street.
#580 of 1710 Selling a Expedition
Dec 23, 2001 (9:46 am)
I have a 1999 Expedition XLT 2WD. I have been trying to sell it for well over a month. It seems I cannot give it away.
Anyone had any trouble unloading theirs?
Dec 24, 2001 (8:23 am)
Does anyone here actually like how the 2003 Expy looks? It looks like crap in my opinion. I will never buy one. I have 94K miles on my 1997 but when it dies I sure as hell wont buy another Expy. Maybe a Navigator or Excursion. I find that ford has made a mistake making the 2003 Expy look like an oversized Exploder.
#582 of 1710 where did you
Dec 24, 2001 (9:17 pm)
get a look at the new EXPedition? Heard it would look like a big Explorer which seems neither good nor bad to me.

Its here somewhere on this site and I saw it once on a spyphotos site. I dont remember the links. Trust me, the ones out right now are better especially the 97-98 with the chrome bumpers.

I don't live in the DFW area (300 miles away) but I use the paper as my guide to bottom dollar deals and have even traded there a few times. I'm seeing some unbelievable offers on '02 Expedition XLT and EB.....8-10k discounts with the rebates....an XLT with convenience pkg and 6 disc changer for $25k and an EB with the 5.4 and all the good stuff that comes standard for $30k. I had a 98 XLT with the 5.4. I thought it was a great car except for the sorry gas milage; but at these prices, you can buy a good bit of fuel. These things are getting cheap. What's the deal? Why has this one time "darling" of the SUV world fallen out of favor. A comparable Tahoe costs $5k more; a comparable Sequoia, $10k more. I'm very tempted but a little afraid that everyone seems to be running from them. Am I missing something?
