Love My Expedition — Like the looks of the Expedition. Great tow package, able to tow my camper, with a golf cart inside. Like the auto leveling system, not all Expeditions have this. I like the second row captain seats. And third row provides extra seating.

Lots of room and the kids love it with the built in DVD player. Comfortable ride.

Cons

miles per gallon should read gallons per mile. No separate subwoofer control with factory radio.

'08 Expedition Eb — I have only had the car a few days, so far so good other than watching the gas needle drop like a rock. The fold flat seats are awesome too. I am glad I don't have to haul the seats in and out of the vehicle like Tahoe owners do.

Pros

We absolutely love our 2007 Expedition! It's been reliable and fun to drive.

Cons

With gas prices being what they are, the gas mileage is the only downside to owning an Expedition.

Our Favorite Family Vehicle Yet! — The 2007 Expedition is a great looking, dependable, fun-to-drive vehicle. We've owned ours for 2 years, and at 78,000 miles it still rides smooth and has not given us any mechanical problems. It handles nicely, brakes smoothly and is just an overall wonderful vehicle to drive. We highly recommend Expeditions to anyone!

Great — This SUV is great. 2 kids and all the baggage fit comfortably. Being the EL I still have cargo room and don't have to fold the third row down. Con's are the rearview mirror is hard to see out the back due to the length. We have an F150 and this is only 4 inches shorter than that but because there is no bed it feels REALLY big. Good brakes.

One Owner Suv — I love this car and wish I could overcome the fuel efficiency drawback. I purchased the car brand new and it still rides and drives just like it did when I bought it. A new set of tires and a new battery are the only things I have had to replace.

Perfect Family Suv — I never cease to be amazed at what I can fit in this SUV! I love the spacious 3rd row seating, no other SUV comes close on 3rd row leg room. Numerous seating configuration possibilities. Now if only it had a light duty diesel engine to help with power and fuel economy...

Pros

Spacious, Technology and good all around car

Cons

cheap interior and bad brakes

2008 Ford Expedition Limited Edition — love the power of the v8, comfort, space and quiet cabin. Love the technology features like NAV, power everything and TV in the back. Interior uses cheap plastic materials for the dash, Looks like something some kid made in school Gas milieage? Common its an SUV, u dont buy it to save gas u buy to house a family Braking is weak but acceleration isnt bad for a big whale and handling is good for what it is, u just need to know its limits...Car is fun to drive and kicking people out of lanes
