I have a 2003 Excursion bought in 2004. I have put 4 sets of BF Goodrich tires, changed the oil regularly, replaced the brakes 3 times, and turned 300,000 origianl miles in December of 2011. Best car I have every had. This is my 5th Ford Truck. Started out at 18 with an 1984 Bronco II, had a 1998 F-150, and two 2001 Expeditions. All were great vehicles, but I really love my Excursion. I pulled a 7500 lb boat across the state a dozen times and never had a bit of trouble. I will be a Ford man for life!
