Overall, I have been pleased with this truck. Pros: carries everything, comfortable. Cons: poor gas mileage, third row seats don't fold flat. The biggest negative comes when you go to get the truck fixed. Ford seems to hide parts in hard-to-find places. Replacing the $50 front heater core requires $600 of labor to remove all the other parts that block it.
Single feature? Comfort. For its size, it's not too unwieldy.
The newer models have folding 3rd row seats, so it looks like they fixed that. I'm looking to replace this vehicle now, but the 2006 Expedition's interior seems much cheaper.
This is an add on from my last review on my Expedition. Now, less than 7k miles from the blown head gasket, at 75k I have a misfiring cylinder. One of 8 the dealership reminds me, all of which could go bad just like cylinder 3 in my current case. $252 later I am still driving my Expedition. How long do you keep it before saying/admitting it was a loss and buy something other than a Ford? Maybe Ford will help now that I have spent over $2k in repairs since purchasing 2 years ago. I doubt it.
Same as before, except it is hard to enjoy them when you are broke fixing the vehicle!
Better engine quaility! More horsepower. Better gas mileage. FORD SUPPORT WHEN YOU BUY A LEMON!
I purchased an expedition b/c of its great looks, size, and expected reliability. I bought it w/55k miles in 2003. Loved it and still do b/c of tough truck looks w/the sport package. Great view from the front seats, plenty of room inside, though when the 3rd seat is used there is little to no room in the back, great handling interior comforts. The ride is a little rought. However, all of that went to the wayside when the head gasket blew at 69k and ford refused to help. So $2k later, I am still driving my Expedition. So, love the vehicle but can not rationalize buying another one due to my misfortune and ford's refusal to help. Where is customer service to keep customers loyal?
Looks, handling, size, view and again looks.
More room in back when 3rd seat is in use. Better head gaskets!!!!!!!! Ford support when they sell you a lemon!!!!!!!!
Great truck. No racer, as you would expect, but I tow our 20' boat up 6 degree inclines in the Blue Ridge Mountains with no problems at all, and I have the 4.6 Triton! Comfortable on the highway. The XLT Sport is a great deal. XLT with bonuses! You have to have Continental tires on this SUV; they improve handling and quieten the ride.
Loads of power outlets, great sunroof, dual air conditioners freeze out the car. great towing package.
MORE POWER! Better acceleration. That's it! Great vehicle for the family and then some.
