Pros

If you travel a lot, tow or carry big loads inside. it can't be beat.

Cons

If you can't accept the mileage, don't even look at one.

Super... It Does Everything I Bought It To Do. — Great SUV. VERY comfortable and could tow a house if you could figure out how to attach it. I guess for the size, the mileage is not that bad... 13 town and 18 highway. It was better before I was forced to buy 10% Ethanol That seems to be the biggest joke on the American motorist ever perpetrated. Cuts the mileage by 10% also. This has made corn product go higher in the process. When are we going to go to hydrogen? Burn water! I have read articles on this car and they seem to find things wrong with it that I don't. I think a lot of the problems people have are from their own doing. Routine maintenance is big in my book. Most people do not pay attention as long as their car starts when they get in it. I usually get 180k-250k miles on my cars before I get rid of them and they still run and look good. This is not a sport car so I didn't expect high performance from it. It has no problem keeping up with traffic and I am happy. I think it is well built and good looking for what it is.

Ford Expedition — First and foremost I like the size of the vehicle. I need a large vehicle for my job and this suits perfectly. Being able to haul the whole family and all the gear is a nice bonus as well. This SUV is built on a truck frame. So it rides like a truck, which is my preference. If you want a toy SUV that rides like a car, this is not the vehicle for you...you should probably check out one of those import SUV rollerskates that passes as an SUV.

Does Everything — This truck does everything I need it to do, hauling the kids around pulling whatever I need, plenty of room for hauling big stuff, comfortable, has all the options I love, moonroof, dvd heated leather seats and a great stereo.

Great Suv — Great all around SUV, acceleration is OK, it handles very well on and off road. Drove it successfully in the dessert and in snow storms, interior is spacious and comfortable. Gas mileage sucks but who cares!!! Exterior looks great, engine is relatively powerfull and basically it delivers. I recommend this car

Pros

Lots of space, heated and cooled seats, middle seat in 2nd row slides fore/aft, power operated 3rd row seats fold flat, power adjustable brake pedal location, easy entry drivers seat, commanding view of the road, 4WD system works slick.

Cons

Not so great gas mileage, handles like a big truck, steering is very isolated from the road, hard to park in these small spots here in Cali.

Great Family And Gear Hauler — Wife didn't want a minivan and third row needed to be comfortable for a 6 foot adult. This is why we bought this. We decided that we didn't need to pay extra for a lincoln navigator when we got everything we needed in the expy.

Very Reliable And Inexpensive To Maintain — it is very reliable, has independant rearend which makes it handle very great. it has moderate breaking abilities and accelarates hard thanks to the only 2 valve 5.4 lite. it gets around in the mud and snow with no issues due to the very refined 4xD. gets about 15 mpg around town.

My '05 Ford Expedition — Love the 4 wheel independent suspension. For a full size SUV it handles the best in it's class by far. It's got really good power, but the gas milage could be a bit better. I only see about 13.5 mpg. Love the leather interior because it's really easy to clean up.

Great Family Suv — Great car except it is expensive to drive. Fuel cost for in town driving excessive. Highway driving is not bad as long as you stay out of the pedal. This vehicle has plenty of room for 8 people or a large family. It is also good for pulling trailers.

Pros

Excellent 4wd system, attractive Eddie Bauer trim pkg. Affordable SUV that still could pass for $20,000 looks

Cons

Stiffer ride than a GM SUV

Reliable And Affordable With Great Features — This is my first Expedition and you get a lot for the money. A similar Yukon or Tahoe would be thousands more and I believe this has better styling ques. Four wheel drive system is more reliable than a GM product and I believe it does better in winter conditions. It is not fuel efficient but that is a cost I am willing to pay to be above the road. Parking is much easier than assumed, rear park assist is a great feature.
