At 55,000 miles we had a major
transmission problem and simultaneously
the enginge blew! During the next
10,000 miles it has been in the shop
more days than out. It currently sits
in the shop to have $2,000+ of
transmission repairs completed. Ford
could care less and has done nothing to
help compsenate after persistant follow-
up on my part. I strongly urge careful
consideration and research prior to
purchase of a Ford product.
Size and looks
Transmission, Leather quality, wiper
motor, Engine design and suspension.
I average 20 m.p.g. on the highway on
flat terrain, but the 4.6 liter does
have to work in the hills and the
vehicle is loaded. After 4 years the
truck is still in excellent shape and
has not been in the shop for repair
excepting a loose wire on the back up
system. 5 star safety rating was a
factor in purchase. Ford needs a 8-way
seat as seen in the Honda Pilot.
After year 3 (warranty expiration), we
braced for any breakdown.
Apart from the differential gear seal
leak and one set of new tires, we've
had no problems (major nor minor).
The leather option is starting to show
its wear (once I added lotion to my
elbow, it stop wearing down).
Great kid car.
Powered driver seats with two memory
settings. I am 6'5" and my wife is
5'2" so having those pedals adjusted
along with the seats and side mirror is
Shouldn't the rear-view mirror also
adjust as well for tall/short person as
Backup sensors BEEPS excessively. It
has been serviced twice (a tad bit too
much) and is still beeping like crazy
(disconnected it myself).
Great people mover - family, kids and
friends. Good performance from the
5.4. My main complaint is that right
after Manuf warranty expired- I'm
talking 3 months and 2500 miles - I had
problems with 2 power windows, door
locks (child locks) air suspension
tubing and compressor. This is my
first Ford and because of these issues
I doubt I go back.
Size and seating capacity. The 2 quad
captains are a outstanding, extremely
comfortable. Good ride for size and
