2005 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 4WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)
I purchased the a new 04 Expedition
seven months ago to replace a 97
Explorer. Overall we (the family) are
very pleased with the vehicle. On the
positive side it rides well, handles
good for a big vehicle and has good
pickup when you need it. The inside
is roomy and comfortable. The heated
and cooled seats are a little strange
at first, but they are a nice touch.
Overall this is a great vehicle if you
want a large SUV.
This is just a great all round SUV.
Well built and full of great features
including a great suspension and a
smooth drivetrain. I have the 4x4 and
love the all wheel drive (one of four
selections) on slick roads - I would
not recommend any large truck that
does not have this feature.
On the negatives the roof collects
water (rain, etc) and dumps it down
the windshield (and front side
windows) when you brake--very annoying
(Explorer had same problem). This is
due to the channels in the roof
(probably to help strengthen the roof
using less internal support.
