Pros

Great ride, comfortable seats, lots of room. Awesome acceleration, feel very safe driving.

Cons

MPG, Side panels on exterior of car faded.  Great car with no costly maintenance until the last two years, when we hit about 180,000mls.  Replaced fuel pump, main computer, ball joints, arms and alternator.  Had a problem with a little rust on roof, easy fix

Love My Expedition, Would Buy Another If I Could Afford It! — I have owned my Expedition for nine years and holding! Just recently have had to drop some serious money into it. Still worth fixing compared to buying another one. Because I would want another one just like it!! Great family vehicle, lots of room and comfortable for long road trips!

Pros

Great dependability & roomy.  I like everything about the Expedition other than the gas mileage.

Cons

Fuel economy SUX!!! I guess that's the price you pay for size & room!!!  If you absolutely, positively have to haul around 8 or more people, then bite the bullet on gas & drive an Expedition!!!

Awesome Features & Room!!! — I like everything about the Expedition other than the fuel economy. Ford V8 5.4 & 4.6 are known for issues with coil-overs but they are and easy fix & I have a 4 yr UNLIMITED mileage Warranty on my Expedition that pays for the coil-overs & labor so I can keep riding without the burden of added maintenance/repairs!!!

Pros

5.4 liter V-8 is the larger V-8 of those available in this model, we choose it because in towing our bay boat or trailer we feel the more power would be better and the fuel mileage not that different.

Cons

Tires more expensive than smaller vehicles, but we put a little more aggressive tires on for handling the slippery wet boat ramps we have here in FL.  Repair costs are fair

Great Vehicle For All Around Use. — The only better SUV on the road was our 2000 Ford Excursion Diesel. We lived in snow country then and it was so neat to have an SUV that would pull those 8% grades without a hick-up. Since they don't make that one anymore, we choose to go with the Expedition and it is our mini-excursion (without the diesel engine of course).

Lovable Big Suv — Great vehicle for the price we got. big gas consumption. use big tires. good brakes, handling, easy to get parts because, is a Ford! 4.6L engine is a little beast. the transmission is awesome and very freaking strong as well.

I Love It, Wish I Didn't Get Rid Of It. — It had a V8 so it was powerful and quick to get up to speeds on the highway, plus mine had seating for 7 so I can haul all my friends around, Um... Had to get rid of it because it was having engine problem so I traded it for a 08 Pathfinder (new).

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Love It! Always Feel Safe! — I Love the options that mine has, I'm really short & I love that the peddles come to me at the push of a button! I'm love that the seats fold down and lay flat and you can move anything in to! it's great 8 people or lots of stuff!

My Eb — Although the wife has drivin this more than I have, I will say that the quality of the interior is above top notch. The leather interior is quite nice especially because of the heated and cooled front leather seats! The 5.4L has enough power to do anything, I can't wait to hook a trailer up to it to see how it tows.

The Best Suv Out There. — Performance-The engine is perfect, and if needed can accelerate quickly. Build Quality-Excellent. Appearance-Great! Cost of Ownership-The gas tab is kind of high but that is to be expected on a V8. Fun Factor-The car is very fun to drive, especially when accelerating quickly.
