  • My Family Truckster

    By Family Truckster on Thursday, March 29, 2012

    We have owned ours for 7 years and put 120,000 miles on it. It has 180,000 on it now. We have NEVER had a problem. NEVER left us stranded. Easy to maintain. My family has grown from 2 of us to 5 of us. We take cousins and aunts and uncles and grandparents, and never seem to run out of room. I am a firefighter and seen several of these in head on collisions and rollovers. It has done a terrific job in the safety category for the occupants in those collisions. The seats are comfortable for the long trips and it is NOT so big that you can't park it. Room for the kids to spread out. Even though it has 4.6L V8, it has never lacked the get up and go power I have needed. My only complaint is that the suspensions design is rough on front tires and you have to rotate your tires if you want to get a decent tread life out of your tires. A great choice. Now that they are getting old enough that they aren't very expensive, any 1997-2002 Expedition would be a good choice for a family looking for safety and comfort without spending $40,000 for a new SUV.

    I have NOT abused my Eddie Bauer by jumping it to test it's chassis strength! But the "Self-leveling-air-suspension" has made a believer out of me that it's better than any-other-non-controlled-suspension I've ever had. I've enormously have enjoyed doing my own repair's on my expedition! At least my Ford has not been: Found-On-Road-Dead!
