It's like saying goodbye to an old friend. But, the time has come for us to wave
goodbye to our 2003 Ford Expedition.
I think everyone becomes attached to their vehicles, particularly when it's one
they like. We're no exception when it comes to our 2003 Eddie Bauer Edition, for
the Ford Expedition.
It's just been over a year since we took delivery on the Expedition. And, this
was a great SUV experience from start to finish. Beginning with the design, to
the ride, we were never disappointed.
I still wish the center console would open from the left, right, or straight up
and I would have preferred cargo doors rather than a traditional lift-gate. But,
when you think about everything there is to NOT like about an SUV or any
vehicle, I'd say the Expedition passed with flying colors.
In fact, you can't get a better endorsement than when one of our staff purchases
an Expedition, and that's exactly what Kristi Bannen is doing.
While we're saying goodbye to our Expedition, we will always have some lingering
memories. Who could forget the day a rock cracked the windshield, and we had our
glass expert, Jerry, do a full replacement. You'd never know it was done. And,
then the time we heard a loud hissing, only to discover one of our tires slowly
going flat. Yes, we made it to the tire store before it went flat and had it
replaced. More significantly, you may remember when we found the plastic peeling
from the center caps of the Expedition's wheels. That led to an improved process
in how they were being manufactured.
But, as we say goodbye to this old friend and hope it finds a nice home, we will
be welcoming the all-new F-150 pick-up truck to our family. More to come on
