All In All , Thi Is A Great Truck And We Are Happy To Have Purchased It. — When we bought this truck, we were looking for a family friendly larger Suv. What we found in this truck, was that it was designed to be a good strong larger body style Suv and that it has many options to help it also be a family vehicle as well. The options in this truck were many. We would deff recomend this truck to anyone in the market.

Great Vehicle For Famillies! — Good SUV. The power fold down 3rd row is quite possibly my favorite feature of this SUV. Having owned SUV's without this option, I never realized what a hassle it was to have the seats that did not fold flat. We have had ZERO issues with our car. It's been very reliable and affordable.

Very Nice Suv Suitable For Anyone — The 5.4L V8 engine is good for hauling, towing, passing, has great pick up, and is good for overall daily driving, but I find it seems to have a bit of trouble going over 110 km/h. Maybe it is just because I am used to my Cadillac and my Corvette, but I am not complaining. The handling is awesome for such a behemoth apart from the overly large turning circle. The build quality is better than I expected, I will be looking into a wood dash kit though since it sort of looks bland and colorless. I really enjoy the features such as power heated seats, power heated mirrors, the power tilt and slide sunroof, the 7 passenger seating, the opening window portion of the back hatch, and the power adjustable pedals. The appearance on the outside is very nice, I especially like the Metallic Red and Grey color combination. the interior is very nice, though I do not have kids and will probably be ready for a new vehicle once that time comes, I still think the DVD entertainment system is a cool bonus. Speaking of bonuses, the keyless entry is a MUST for people like me who make a habit of locking the keys in their vehicles! If you buy a Ford product, it is well worth the extra to get it! It is actually pretty good on gas for it's size. It's no Honda Civic or anything, but it is managable. I would have really liked to have seen a back up camera or at least back up sensors on it though. I will have to go buy a backup camera for it and mount it because backing up is a litte scary. I find keeping both rows of rear seats down while not in use can help alot, but all the space seems to give me new reason to buy larger items. And, this is about as fun as a large SUV will get, I do enjoy driving it mostly because of the height I guess. I would definetley recommend this SUV to anyone, especially those with large families who do not feel like comprimising their dignity by driving a minivan.

2006 Ford X-ped — I like everything about this vehicle, and will buy another. It's an SUV so MPG will never be great, but for the big V8 Titon it does better than I expected! (14.5 city/20.5 hwy). It's my tow vehicle for our boat! Love the 2-tone styling of '06 (white over gold). Other than gas, maintenance cost is dramatically lower than what I had before ('07 Ford E-150 Conversion Van). LT $30/month (excluding gas). LOVE riding high!!

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Purchased this truck for my wife and it has been very reliable, Great long trip vehicle, maintenance cost over the last  7 years has been minimal, all regular scheduled tasks performed but other than that, tires and brakes were replaced recently.

Cons

Fuel, Over use can cost $100 in gas a week

Reliable / Safe / Solid — This truck has been a very safe choice for my wife and kids, great for all the sporting events large capacity to carry all of the sports gear. Can seat up to 8 very comfortably and has acceptable fuel economy on the freeway, not so good in the inner city streets. Has a V8 Engine with great acceleration and plenty of power.

Pros

Pack it with seven people and it's still comfortable. Lots of space. Lots of features.

Cons

Poor gas mileage. Not great for big family road trips - if you have seven people in it, the luggage has to go on the roof. Not a big deal. All of our repairs/updates seem to be slightly more expensive because it's an Eddie Bauer.

Great Family Car For Around Town — This car has been great for my growing family but now that my kids are getting older it's time to start commuting again - and this is not the car for a long drive to work. Sure, it's super comfy but the gas mileage is enough to kill any budget. Great for car pool and big families. Not a ton of storage space when there are lots of people in it.

Reliable — Its big like a truck yet drives like a car. Mileage stinks but its huge. It fits the whole family and has room for friends too. Does good off road and not bad on the highway either. I'd buy it again.

Still Love The Spaciousness Of The Vehicle. — This is my second Expedition. This one doesnt have heated seats, this a must in Michigan. The power is phenomenal and the ride is priceless. This vehicle is great for every day work transportation, toting the kids to and fro and going out for a night on the town with the wifey!

Great family vehicle, plenty of room and great on the highway.

Big Body — I bought his ride to use a family vehicle and also my main transportation. It has been awesome on the highway, we took it on a road trip to VA, last summer and the ride was great. Added 24" Chrome Rims, after marker radio. Also put a flowmaster to give it a little rumble.
