#14 of 33 Did check the TMV Pricing
Oct 28, 2002 (4:13 am)
I did check the TMV pricing but I am reading about all these people who received thousands off the price. Also, isn't this the last year for the Excursion?

Yes, I've heard that 2004 will be the last model year.

I bought Excursion 03 with the rear seat dvd player. Sales rep said that it came with wireless headphones as shown in separate brochure. Mine came without the either the remote or headphones. Dealer order same and to my surprise, and salesman, the headphones are "wired" He has ordered "wireless" but dont think they will work. Any suggestions as to how to get them operational. Otherwise love suv, mileage with PSD 18 mpg 70, 22 55. Diesel #1 seems to cut mileage by 10% or more, does this seem logical. Also concerned over huge discounts, saw a 03 Eddie Bauer with 7.3 diesel for 14M off list of 46M. This will effect everyone who has an Excursion as the resale value of the suv will reflect these high discounts.
#17 of 33 DVD Player response

I went through the same confusion on the dvd headphones. I've got an 02 Excursion Ltd Ultimate 4x4 7.3 PSD and was told the rear dvd player came with wireless headphones. Wrong, the wireless headphones go with the VHS player that was being installed prior to being replaced by the dvd player which only comes with wired headphones. The dealer ended up ordering me two addtional sets and both times they came wired. I think the confusion is in some of the sales literature that was floating around during the changeover from VHS to dvd. My guess on the big discount on the 03 Eddie Bauer 7.3 is due to the new 6.0 diesel now hitting the street. It's a stronger engine then the 7.3 so the 03 with the 7.3 isn't as desireable. I got a huge discount on my 02 in 09/02 I think for the same reason plus a $5000 rebate Ford was running at the time. I love the truck and it pulls our 27' Komfort TT a whole lot better than the 98 Expedition we had prior.

#20 of 33 04 Excursion for $1,237 UNDER Invoice Plus $1,500 Rebate
Nov 12, 2003 (12:11 am)
I LOVE my Excursion, and the deal I got made it even better! I contacted the dealer thru email via Ford's internet dealer locator service (113 dealers in all sent the email) with the same email detailing what I wanted.
I got the 4x4 Limited 6.0 PSD, DVD, 3.73 Limited Slip, Skid Plate, Trailer Tow mirrors & cargo mat. Pricing, including 795 dest charge:
MSRP was 52,755
Invoice was 46,175
My price was 44,938, or $1,237 under invoice, less ANOTHER $1,500 rebate and a full tank of diesel! This was their initial offer with no haggling.
And only 16 miles on this new vehicle! No other charges except the $45 Doc Fee and Sales Tax. My husband loves it too, especially since I will not let him drive it and he gets driven everywhere now. The tow mirrors are something else, what with the extra mirror at the bottom of them to remove the blind spot.
We bought it at Elm Ford in Woodland, CA (10 miles outside the Sacramento airport). (Don't confuse them with Woodland Hills in southern CA). They picked us up at the airport, too.
Besides having an unbelievable price, they were also nice people.
If you want a truck or an excursion, I strongly suggest you email them.
#21 of 33 diesel engines

Has there been a comparision of the 7.3 and the 6.0 engines? I've been hearing that the 6.0 has some potential problems?
