Basic engineering & body issues
My 2000 Ford Expedition has an excellent drive train however there are issues with the basic engineering of certain parts that are extremely diffcicult (& expensive) to replace. For example the front A/C evaporator is a part that costs around $100 to purchase but requires such extensive labor to replace that the repair costs over $1,000. In addition the roof design did not consider drainage of rain water & rust has formed along the grooves. Rainwater also does not drain well out of the doors & rust has also appeared on the inside bottom edges of the doors. These are inexcusable oversights from a company as old & experienced as Ford. I will replace my Expedition with another brand SUV because of these reasons.
