Good vehicle- but do the maintenance!

2000 Ford Expedition XLT 4dr SUV
Bought used in 2003 to replace 1995 Astro van that we had crashed. Has been a really good vehicle with no problems. When I bought it the dealer said that they had serviced the vehicle with a major tune up and transmission service. Recently when you push on the gas the car started to pull back in power. The first thing i thought was the transmission, so i had it serviced and the tech said it had never been serviced before, but was very clean. Well that wasn't the problem, a master mechanic finally found the problem as an arcing going across the distributor wire. So I paid for a major tune and had everything replaced. $700 dollars later, runs good now. Not a very cool car for Laguna Beach!
Lot of power.
More room in the back seats and gas mileage is horrible, but any SUV this size the mileage stinks. Would not buy another one because of gas prices and it's not very good looking.
