2003 Ford Expedition - Eddie Bauer 5.4L (310B) 4x2
Pros: locked glove box
Cons: The power seats break repeatedly! Just filed a lemon law claim.
Advice: Wait till they fix the problems and improve the mileage.Bought a 2003, had a 97 with 100,000 miles. No major problems with that one. New Exp broke at 50 miles! Power driver's seat stops working, they replace the seat and it has broken 5 times total. Production problems? Also the heated seat won't work correctly either, it all one piece, the seat and the power toy's motor! LEMON LAW! Also the MPG is way off, even on the highway only 16mpg.

2003 Ford Expedition - Eddie Bauer 4.6L (300B) 4x2
Pros: Great looks
Cons: Brake dust
Advice: Make sure you want a vehicle this bigIn a word - BIG! I've owned my '03 EB X for 4 months, and despite some minor flaws I am quite pleased with it. A smooth ride, LOTS of room, and great looks make this choice a good one. The fold flat 3rd row seat is great, the old design virtually kept me from purchasing an X a couple years ago. But the brake dust is horrific! I've just purchased a set of Kleenwheels dust sheilds, hopefully that will improve things. All in all, I love my X!
2002 Ford Thunderbird - Premium (110A)
Pros: Sporty looks
Cons: Dealership sales department
Advice: Shop outside of Fort Walton BeachOnly got to sit in it in the showroom--salesman would not give us the time of day to take on a test drive unless we convinced him we were ready to buy. My wife and I were very disappointed and surprised of the dealership's attitude towards customers, especially the military in this area of the state.
