We bought our Expedition with 72k miles in 2010.
It now has 138k miles.
In that time we have replaced the lower balljoints, one fuel injector (Ford recall).
The only other items replaced were coil packs, a battery, spark plugs, and brake pads which are normal maintenance items.
We absolutely love the vehicle and while we have also bought a truck and a car we refuse to get rid of the Expedition and use it for vacations.
It suits every need we have and is extremely reliable and comfortable.
We will drive this one until the wheels fall off, and once we can't put them back on anymore we will likely buy a new one.
If you're good to it, it will definitely be good to you.

There is a major issue with the 2005 Ford Expedition. I was driving down the road going 50 mph and received a check electronic throttle message on the dash and the engine stopped and so did the power steering and brakes. I was in the left lane of a two lane road and nearly got in an accident. I took it to Ford and they replaced the throttle body for nearly $700. I've checked online and there are hundreds and hundreds of people with the same issue. [non-permissible content removed].
