Cons

Gas consumption

My Big Maroon Baby, — I love the air suspension, gives it a real smooth ride, and it has a turn radius like none other. Gas mileage is terrible, but it is powerful and comfortable. It is a great car to drive. I hope the car sticks around for many years to come, it has not failed me yet.

I Would Drive This Truck Because Its Very Affordable. — This Truck Is Very Roomy. I do not like that it takes a long time to pick up because its heavy. It is very fun when you have a lot op people on the SUV. It is very efficient on the gas although its a V8. I do regular tune-up so it helps.

Pros

nice looking, smooth ride, quite (its a truck build em loud), spacious

Cons

ford already circled it, can be quite a gas sucker, how the computer is programed for the air ride suspention and the size of the air pump its self (to slow)

Its An Enjoyable Truck To Drive — This truck is a nice rig for a ford. I personaly hate ford with a pashion and have always owned and driven GM trucks. I am a 25 year old paraplegic and with in the seven years i've been in a chair the interior space of the truck is supprisinly quite roomie. My chair's no hospital ride, lol, and is quite a bit smaller and lighter. If I just take one wheel off its fairly easy to negociate it into and out with out a problem. The self adjusting air ride suspention is quite nice, but would rather have the rear bags on switches. This is because the truck sits rite down when not being driven and the pump takes forever to aquire a proper psi lever for its current load, weather if it were to be loaded or not. She can suck back a tank of gas fairly quick if you want to get up to speed asap rite when you will have to slow down or come to a stop. I seem to get between 20-24 mpg which I thought was good. Now that I see 16-18 mpg is good I think some people just need to learn how to drive and remember that gas isn't cheep. Oh did I mention I got it for only $1000. Thats the onl realy big reason why im driving it. cheers

Great Suv To Have! — •Performance - acceleration, braking, handling •Build Quality - Great •Appearance - both interior and exterior styling I do like •Cost of Ownership - gas mileage for an 8 seater 14-22mpg is fine with me, maintenance cost are low. little repairs needed 164,000 miles on it! •Fun Factor- not a fun car to drive but a comfortable one.

Overal A Good Car — I liked that there is plenty of room specially with a child seems to go anywhere and stay you gotta take half the house. Very comfortable i think my husband on the other hand didnt think it was comfortable. Blind spots but if you look all around you there is plenty of window space to see. overal a great family car or if you haul alot of stuff that a trunk wont do this would be great

Good Quality, Fun To Drive, And Very Big Suv — The ford expedition is a fun SUV to drive. It is so high off the ground that I can see the roof of an explorer. Performance wise it is very good. I haven't had to do much work on it. It is incredibly easy to do oil changes on. My expedition has the eddie bauer trim package ( leather seats , sunroof and 6cd changer in the armrest.) MPG really stink , it only gets about 13, but it is very safe and makes driving in winter a breeze. The only real issue I have had with the expedition is the rough shift . When the engine RPMs are high the gear shifts feel vaguely like being kicked by a mule; but that problem can be avoided by relatively slow acceleration.

Great Family Ride For Those Of Us Who Don't Like Minivans — This is the 2nd one I've had and I really enjoy driving something big and powerful. The ease of getting the family in and out is also great and they all have room.

Eye Catching — Great SUV, lots of room,seats up to eight passengers comfortably. Lots of horse power and sounds great with upgraded exhaust and air intake system. Very low maintenance needed, very dependable transportation for local or long distance traveling. This SUV rides and handles nicely with upgraded shocks, wheels and tires.
