    2003 Ford Expedition - Eddie Bauer 5.4L (400B) 4x4

    Pros: leg and head room

    Cons: 13 mpg around town

    Advice: do not get the moonroof!

    Other than the low mpg I didn't really have too many complaints about this veh. I too had the rearview mirrors problem where they didn't hold the presets and wouldn't correct after reversing. I have a new problem...several water leaks (from rain) in the drivers area. The water is leaking from the sun visor area & the emergency break release handle...probably something with the moonroof. I rarely use the moonroof as I find it to be very loud when opened.

    2003 Ford Expedition - XLT 5.4L Premium (140B) 4x2

    Pros: The drive, the stereo and the air conditioner.

    Cons: gas mileage but not bad for a large SUV if you drive it conservatively.

    Advice: Drive conservatively.

    Drives like a luxury vehicle. Very easy and smooth. Great acceleration and power. Had a little strain pulling a three horse trailer though. Good handling and breaking. But a little hard to back up due to blind spots, you have to look a lot of different directions to make sure you aren't going to hit anything. Recommend electronic sensors.

    2004 Ford Expedition - Eddie Bauer 5.4L (400A) 4x4

    Pros: Navigational Display - Heat and Cool Seats - Air bag suspension

    Cons: Transmission problems at 506 miles new Over Drive went out.

    Advice: This is a very smooth and quiet vacation vehicle. Good thing we have a large garage. Very classy inside and out. We did go so far to purchase the Husky Liners to protect the tan enterior carpeting. Test drive it. Be prepared to spend money on gas

    Very nice and quiet. Very nicely equiped for anything you would want in a car/suv.

    2004 Ford Expedition - Eddie Bauer 5.4L (400A) 4x4

    Pros: I like the styling for a large vehicle

    Cons: MPG @ 14.5, would have liked a diesel option

    Advice: Buy used OR wait for huge rebates

    I do like this truck (my wife hates me calling it that). However it is not near the vehicle that my two Sequoia's were. I've had the rear end replaced at 7000 miles. It went into 4wdLOW on my wife while she parked at a gas station 500 miles from home. It handles like it looks, big and slow. However it is the ultimate for hauling kids, junk or pulling a boat. My wife didn't like the Infiniti FX45 as the family vehicle so I kept it for myself and traded my 350Z for the Expedition for her. Biggest complaint: $47,000 vehicle, 1 year old, High Book now at $25,000. Fortunately with the X plan and rebates I got $11,000 off but that's still a huge hit. Don't like to do it, but would have been better off buying a low milage used one. This one has depreciated so much that I have to keep it now. I usually trade every two years, but the loss on this one will force me to keep it unbtil it's paid down some. That's probably a good thing anyway.
