My daily driver is my 1999 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer. Just turned 176,000 and still going very strong. Original engine, transmission, and other drive train. Usual maintenance, brakes and shocks, front suspension replaced mostly myself. The older V8s like mine have a nasty habit of throwing spark plugs, because they are only held by 3 or 4 threads in the aluminum head. Known engine defect, and I have replaced about 4 or 5 myself with a steel threaded insert, kit easily available.
When I drive this one into the ground (looking to get 200-225K) then I will be looking for another 5-6 year old Expedition....
