I have owned this truck for 4 years now, buying it with 72000 miles and currently 120,000, absolutely no problem! I drive it 50 miles a day and it's been ol' reliable. I know that when I look at a new one in a few years they will be just as good.
I bought this SUV new in 1999 and now have 95,000 miles on it. It has performed extremely well over the years and has been very reliable and easy to drive. It is great for towing boats and Waverunners as well as U-Hauls to take kids to college. The throttle valve assembly was replaced at 86K miles but otherwise no major repairs other than routine maintenance. I would definitely buy another if I needed a large SUV.
Adjustable foot pedals for my wife. 4 cup holders available to front seat occupants. Lots of power for acceleration.
Gas mileage is always an issue with the price of gas but you have to expect poor mileage with a vehicle this size. Third row seat is uncomfortable but rarely used...usually stays in the garage so cargo space is maximized.
I am currently on my 3rd Ford Expedition. I have been involved in two accidents with the previous two and just bought my third. In both accidents, one being a 60mph head on collision and the other being about a 45-50 mph front end crash, there was no one hurt in our vehicle; both accidents resulted in the Expeditions being completely totaled. The Expedition may be tough on the wallet when it comes to gas and mileage but i have just purchased my 3rd Ford Expedition and would not even think about driving anything else. You feel like you own the road when driving them and in two very serious accidents with no one getting hurt, I think they speak for themselves.
Bought it new for my wife, the list price was over $39,000. We had so many little problems that's cost a lot to be fixed. Air ride bags $800. Air conditioner. leaking water $750. Power bank (it's like spark plugs) $800. Heater trap door activator $1000. Head light auto switch, rear wiper, sticky linkage cable...etc. All of that on top of bad gas mileage. I just can't help it but compare it to my trusty 1994 Honda Accord with 153,000 miles and tell my self why... why... why... you stupid had to buy a Ford?
I liked it under the bumper to bumper warranty only.
Gas mileage. Reliability is a serious problem and costly.
