"I've driven this rig all over the country traveling on business. I've pulled, with ease, a 24' enclosed utility trailer along the way. After 251,000 miles, I've only replaced the water pump. The motor for the wipers and fan have been replaced, too. Not too bad for a quarter million miles!
Simply put, it's one of the best vehicles, if not the best, I've ever owned!"
"Great for towing, we purchased our '03 eddie bauer Excursion it about a year ago with 20k miles and now it has about 60. It has been pampered apart from its occasional long tows. since purchased I have gone through 3 turbos on the 6.0 litre diesel, have constantly niggly electrical problems, and trim pieces dont fit the rest of the car and are nearly falling off. cheap plastics abound and NO ergonomics. Wiring harness blew out and left us stranded. I would recommend this truck, but only for its power and reasonable (12-23 MPG) fuel economy. The rest, unless you're hauling tons of people, is rubbish. If hauling isnt priority number one, buy a Land Rover."
"We are currently looking for another Excursion. We were in a roll-over accident. In which we went down an embankment and rolled 3 times. I believe this vehicle saved our lives. We were all wearing seatbelts including our two boys and we walked away from this accident with minor injuries."
