Ford has stated that the Expedition is being investigated by NHTSA for possible defects with its windshield wipers. The defect potentially involved 650,000 vehicles built from 1999-2001, and results from moisture leaks into the vehicle near the windshield (presumably in the cowl area) during rain or snow - right when the wipers are needed, of course - and causes the wipers to malfunction. So far, 20 complaints have been received by NHTSA. While this is not yet a full-blown recall and may not develop into one (no accidents or injuries have been reported so far), it's certainly the sort of attention that Ford doesn't need right now.
