Pros

Each ride is an experience!  Very tough SUV!  It  will get you there, over it, or through it ...it really doesn't matter!

Cons

Gas!

Love It! — Fun to drive! Lots of power. Take care of it, and it won't let you down! Hard on gas (as a daily driver), but worth it! Perfect for snowy conditions! This one is highly recommended, ...if you can get one! Go for it!!!

Best Suv For A Family Or Any Outdoor Adventures — This SUV has been running strong for over 10 years in my family with minimal problems. With proper maintenance and upkeep, it will keep on running for a long time. This is when they built cars to last. The Eddie Bauer edition includes the leather seats and the more powerful engine which is a huge plus.

Pros

3rd row fits our family fairly well. Towing package is useful at times. Somewhat large interior.

Cons

Poor gas mileage. Hard to maneuver at times since it's a full size SUV.

Decent Full Size Suv With Poor Gas Mileage — This full size SUV has been decent for our family for the past six months. However, it has poor gas mileage with the 5.4L V8 engine and it's hard to maneuver in tight spaces and parking lots sometimes due to it's size. Overall it has been a nice vehicle although it has poor gas mileage.

Expeditition Is A Great Vehicle. — I love this car. Its old, but still looks good. In 12 years, I have only had minor repairs to be done. Major repair included a leaking oil pan and something else was leaking near the transmission that I had to have fixed, which they needed to take out the transmission to get to.

Price Is Right In Line With Book Value! — Fantastic Ford SUV built solid, yet with extreme comfort. Air ride suspension makes this truck feel like a passenger car. Very nice condition inside and out. Seating capacity for eight comfortable passengers. Triton 4.6L V-8 engine, 2 wheel drive, and many extra features!

1998 Ford Expedition Xlt — Best vehicle I've ever owned. Outstanding reliabilty and performance. With today's higher gas prices it has become less economical to drive. It can handle all the needs of a family. Hauls the family, appliances, boats and pets effortlessly. Great vehicle for the money.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Nice To Look At But That's It — Came from a Toyota Corolla of 11 years. Bought her used for $3,800 and she is in excellent interior and exterior condition. I enjoy driving her in the Minnesota snow storms, but did manage to make it through the winter seasons and all the neighborhood hockey kids with my Toyota. Disappointed that I have some many problems and I just bought the truck used 2 weeks ago. Replaced starter, need to replace spark plug, need to replace serpenting belt, heat does not work, oil and coolant indicator are on.

Expensive repair - frequent repairs

Stay Clear Of This Model Year - And 1997 To 2002 Model Expeditions — This was probably one of the most costly vehicles for me to own. It spent allot of time in the shop being fixed. Transmission work 5 times, radiator, alternator, many sets of brakes, suspension problems every year, starter, had to replaced driver and passenger windows due to clips on glass falling off. I am not a anti-Ford guy but a anti-expedition that I owned guy. Ford is making some great vehicles - I have just found better service out of Toyota trucks lately and better prices. If when I need to replace my current Tundra - I will look again at Ford Trucks.

At 125,000 Miles It Feels Brand New. I Am Proud To Own It. — had to have extensive front end repair at 100,000 mi. no squeeks or rattles. good solid car, fun to drive. paint on dash cover is flaking a bit. lots of gadgets and accessories and they all seem to work fine. city driving gas mpg is 12.5 give or take.

Overall Worth The Money And Proves Why These Things Still Retail At 8-10k — Had this old boy going on 9 years now and i have waited that long to write a review. You dont know a car from a month of driving it. That being said while it does drink a bit of gas this vehicle is wonderful. We have put 267,000 miles on our with no problems.
