Ford Expedition, SUV
#579 of 1710 ZERO DEFECTS
Dec 13, 2001 (2:17 pm)
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.

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?

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.

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?
#585 of 1710 Thats what the papers say...

Whatever you read is probably BS. When you get to the lot you wont find an expy for the advertised price. Here I see adds constantly about new expeditions selling for 25K. As I go to the lot they tell me that the advertised vehicle has been sold but that they have a wide selection of others to choose for 30-35K. I see it as BS. You cant trust the claimed prices in the paper.

Well, motor mounts are replaced, took them three days and my vibration is still there. Good thing I didn't pay for it. We just got back from a 2500 mile road trip. Everything worked great. 13.5 - 14 MPG with the 5.4 going 75 MPH. Ran into snow on the way back and felt real safe in AWD.
