    Too Many Mechanical Problems. Not Fuel Friendly. — Had to replace driveshaft, trans. parts. other assorted minor problems. Owned for a couple of years. Couldn't afford repairs, fuel.

    Pros: Nice ride, roomy, all the extras.

    Cons: Too many things to go wrong.

    Carries Everything, Takes Everything You Give It With A Smile — Great performer for a 5500+ lb SUV. Gas mileage is low, but understandable considering it was manufactured in 1998 when gas prices were extremelly low and fossil fuel shortage wasn't a concern. Has huge cargo space. Carries my subs and looks stunning if taken care of.

    Pros: Big, strong, well built, tough motor, and a pleasure to drive.

    Cons: Gas mileage.

    Big And Versatile — Typical Ford suspension... Hauls more than it's supposed to. Then the truck can me made family friendly, mildly 4wheeled in the hills and versatile in almost any situation. If you own one, or perhaps the pick-up version, all of your Toyota, Nissan owning friends will want to borrow it when somthing big has to be hauled

    Pros: Versatile

    Cons: Gulps Gas

    Big, Reliable Work Horse — Simple interior. Roomy and comfortable, rides like a truck but still comfortable enough for a family. Enough room to carry just about everything.

    Pros: Size, roomy, large cargo capacity

    Cons: Gas guzzler (13 mpg)

    Quality Unit Ford Did Good On This One — perfect all round unit..5.4 has all the power needed we pulled a box trailer with 2 motorcycles,tools,luggage,beverages,etc from mi to sc with 5 adults 2 dogs. no problems in mts even with the air on full blast...it isnt worth spit in snow in 2whl,but flip it to 4whl and its a whole different animal.it turns on a dime and easy to park. stock sound sys rocks too. for aheavy weight it does pretty good on gas too. after 125k miles cant omplain,except for a miss i cant find at the moment

    Unhappy That The Ford Dealership Cannnot Find Problem — I am unhappy that I have had the vehicle to 3 garages for turn signal problems and the problem cannot be fixed, everyone has a different idea and want me to keep replacing parts, I can do this.

    Good For Alot Of People, Towing, And Carrying Alot Of Stuff,, — I've had this Expedition since it was new (1997) and it has been a good vehicle although it has been relegated to winter/towing/special uses in favor of a more fuel efficient car. With 103,000 miles on it right now (Jan. 2014), it will remain in my stable of autos, as, when it's cleaned up and polished, still looks like new, and still drives well. In essence, whenever I need 4WD in the future, my Expedition will be there !!

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

    Pros: Good performance, 4WD is great in snow ride is comfortable, body is still solid and shows no signs of rust.  Quality vehicle!!

    Cons: Fuel Economy is tough - 11mpg all around (has towing package and tow axle ratio). When repair is required (just replaced spark plugs, and most recently a plug coil on #5 cylinder), it is a real pain!
