I've owned mine for about 6 months now. 160K miles. Replaced front ball jnts, and battery. Just passed Missouri safety/emissions checks (2013), no problem. Runs like a beauty, ...I call her "Big Red!" I felt like I was getting ignored when I took it in for the work and safety checks, ...they had nothing to report on her! Told me to just keep rolling! I like it! I'll report back later. Only reason for any 4 stars, is that I haven't owned long enough yet!
my family bought our 1998 expedition new... through my older brothers abuse (for two years) and my abuse for the past three years, this vehicle is the best, it is about to click 200,000 miles and it has been jumped, slid around, on two wheels, went over a year at one point with no oil change, went for countless off road/mudding experiences, and still running strong. 5.4 is a great engine and has made me ford loyal! hope you have the same experience.
I purchased a 98 Eddie Bauer with 198K miles in April 2011 for $4400 cash. It is now May 2012 and I have 251,100K miles on it. I put 53k miles on it within one year. I just recently had to replace brake pads and have the rotors turned. The air conditioner doesn't get as cold but for what I purchased the vehicle for I have a darn good truck truck!
1998 Eddie Bauer Expedition. 202,110.5 and still going strong. Only the air ride suspension just started leaking. I just bought the replacement air bags from strutmasters who really didn't want to sell them to me... tried hard to get me to go to their conversion kit; but I don't want coil springs. I like the air ride. It rides better and automatically levels the vehicle when loaded or pulling a trailer. I am on here trying to find help or instructions on installing my new air bags (air ride shocks). Tony
222,XXX and yes still going strong.. having some issues with my heater, I am going to replace the heater control valve in the morning!
1998 Eddie Bauer Model. All I can say is that I beat the ever loving crap out of this thing and she just keeps begging for more!!! Replaced the transmission due to an overheating issue was done under warranty, and other then normal maintenance for a truck with 165K miles on it she has never had an issue. She eats brake pads pretty frequently, small rotors for such a big truck, could be my heavy foot, so far I have killed two deer (one was a five point buck at over 60 MPH!! Thank god for the light bar) and completely submerged the truck in salt water twice (had to get back the way I came!!) and yet this truck still continues to drive like a champion, you have not driven until you've driven underwater!! Rinsed truck with Salt Terminator and other then the fact my horn sound like it would be more at home on a Miata (it sounds cute!!) not a single problem with the truck. I will drive this thing to the end. Other then brakes and I have replaced front ball joints and passenger side CV joint, all my front bushings and just put in a new battery and cables. I LOVE THIS TRUCK!!!
98 ford expedition going about 55mph on the highway and the engine would rev and would`t go anywhere would have to pull off to the shoulder of the road and wait for about 5mins. then it would go
1998 Ford Expedition 4x4, 115k, Still running strong as of 2010. Last owner did not take care of car so the exhaust was rusty, but mechanically speaking it has been fantastic. No repairs just did 100,000 mile maintenance, I have the V8 4.6 which just uses regular spark plugs, so I changed those out.
I purchased the car with high mileage. Just passed 147,000 - Feels like new.
