I purchased my 2000 Ford Expidetion with the 4.6, V8 engine brand new. It has been a great vehicle. I became homeless in late 2003 to about early summer 2004 and had to sleep in my vehicle, but that was ok, because my Ford was tried and true. Inside my truck I had a good bed in the rear and I kept warm in the winter and cool in the summer. It would be very hard for me to part with it because of what I have gone through, and it was right there. Today I’m proud to say I have 352,500 miles on her and she still cares.
