Such An Incapable Vehicle

2004 Ford Expedition XLT

The vehicle I own regularly has issues when it comes to acceleration and top speed. I can't get above 60 mph in less than three minutes of pushing the pedal to the floor. It also has no aux cord, so I had to get a cigarette lighter adapter (FM transmitter) just so I could listen to music while I drove. It worked perfectly fine for driving around town, which was perfect for me. But any drive where I had to go over 70 mph was not possible without being a driving hazard. It wasn't very fun

I love my love expedition

2004 Ford Expedition XLT

I have had this expedition since 2011 and we love it. Many trips with the kids. It has taken us to many soccer games away and near. Haven't had any real problems with the truck except for o2 sensors. Fixed the problem and it's working fine. It's comfortable to ride in and I really do not want to get anything else at this time because I am pleased with it.

Never had to worry about it not starting or something going wrong. Dependable.

2004 Ford Expedition XLT

I love my expedition! It is got 3 row seats. There's plenty of room for everyone to seat and for ball practice equipment. Never have to worry about getting stuck in the mud at the all field. It can pull the boat and the camper with no problem. Best vehicle I have ever owned!!

- Dawn J

The SUV has been a dependable truck for me and I depended on it.

2004 Ford Expedition XLT

I have replace the starter twice but it is a very dependable SUV. For a used SUV I have had to replace only tires with the exception of the starter. I have the oil changed every six months no matter how many mile. The only other problem was the back lift up gate has cracked.

- Joseph F

Great cargo space and room for passengers.

2004 Ford Expedition XLT

Love this vehicle got a family car. It is very reliable and can carry a lot of cargo. Good for around town daily errands and also trips with the family. Also room for pets and luggage. Camping., no problem. Can fit all gear in rear. Great for towing any toys you may have.

Alternator and AC issues.

2004 Ford Expedition XLT

I have only had two issues with it since I bought it a year ago. The alternator went out, but it was fairly simple to replace. The other issue is that the AC does not blow out of the second or third row vents. It makes it very difficult to cool the entire vehicle off.

Ford expedition information

2004 Ford Expedition XLT

My vehicle is a little older but is running really good. Its has some rust when you open the doors. I live in New York and the car has 4 wheel drive so it is really great for the harsh winters here. It also has 3 rows of seats so a lot of people can fit in it.

- Megan W

It is good for road trips.

2004 Ford Expedition XLT

It is good for long road trips, and can hold a lot of people in there. You can sleep in the back because there is a bed in the back. It does need a little bit of work on it as far as it needs an o2 sensor and an alignment. It could use some new brakes also.

2004 expedition: can you really trust it?

2004 Ford Expedition XLT

The blinker light goes out, the air conditioner only works on two settings; low or blasting. The most horrible rattling come from the back and the high beam lights occasionally flicker on and you cannot turn them off unless you jiggle the stick really hard.

- Kiara A

Overall great vehicle. Keep in mind repairs!

2004 Ford Expedition XLT

Maintenance needed every 3-8 month. Ok on gas in town. Somewhat reliable . Very comfortable . Very spacious. . Great family vehicle. Easy to find a good mechanic. Cost of mechanic can be very pricey. Awesome for towing another vehicle or moving supplies.

- Eve F

Extended expedition with v8.

2004 Ford Expedition XLT

The vehicle is older but very reliable minor issues and routine upkeep. It is the extended version so there is lots of space but it rides a bit rough. It has a v8 and tons of pulling power, it was used to move our boat and camper back and forth to camp.
