Eddie Bauer after 70,000 miles
By Kevin on
Vehicle
2005 Ford Expedition XLS Rwd 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)
Review
Our first Expedition was a 1999 Eddie Bauer which we traded in after 75,000 problem free miles. We bought our current Expedition primarily because the 1999 was problem free and we wanted the power fold flat third row seats (which are great). However the 2005 version has been in the shop a number of times. The AC compressor had to be replaced at 40,000 miles ($1400) and the front brake calipers had to be replaced at 65,000 miles because they were binding. However the worst part of the vehicle is the interior rattles, dashboard squeaks and suspension creaks, moans and groans which drive us crazy. Gas mileage has been OK, pretty much as expected. 17-18 on the highway and 14-15 around town.
Favorite Features
Power fold flat third row seats, stereo system, heated & cooled front seats, good handling, fairly tight turning radius for a big vehicle, good trailer towing capacity.
Suggested Improvements
Ford needs to improve its overall body integrity to eliminate the squeaks, rattles, groans, etc. They should offer some type of factory spacer to fit between the second row seats and the third row seats when they are all folded down. Paint bubbling on the hood and rear hatch is common on all models
