Gas mileage beast - build quality ok
By Eric on

Vehicle

2005 Ford Expedition XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)

Review

I always wanted to own an Expo and bought a left over 2005 in December. Then gas prices took off. The truck is very comfortable, but the build quality is only "ok." I have 10,000 miles on this vehicle and things are already rattling and I have squeaks. Gas mileage is no where near EPA figures, even with gentle starts and cruising at posted speeds on the highway. I've never seen better than 15-16 (this is a 4x4 model). At over $80 to fill it, it's time for me and the Expo to part ways - it just isn't worth the expense - we'll squeeze into something a lot more economical.

Favorite Features

Massive people hauler - no one complains about space.

Suggested Improvements

Leather is cheap, and, not really a sheet of leather but a composite material. Build quality should be much better.
