2004 Ford Excursion Reviews

The last 6 years have been great. I love, love, love my 2004 Eddie Bauer. It's reliable, easy to handle, and hauls our 5 children and their 'stuff' with ease. The only 'issues' I've had were electrical and involved the A/C (wiring), the window control, and the side mirror lights-no big deal.
