2006 Ford Expedition Limited 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Wow! I am surprised in how much I've come to like the Expedition. We/I wanted the new Chevrolet Tahoe. We just couldn't pass up the 0% financing. My wife didn't really care about which one we got. I feel the Expedition offers the best bang for the buck.


Best Features

A/C works very well. Air conditioned seats are great!


Worst Features

Needs to continue wood grain accents on the dash. Make middle seats captains chair standard. Of course better gas mileage.

2006 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Enjoying our Expedition. Smooth ride and easy to drive. Visibility is excellent considering its height. Safer than most vehicles on the road, but uses more gas than most. Getting 14.2 miles in the city, but drive 6 miles to work so not worried about gas prices. Stereo (6-disc) and DVD great for road trips. Controls for electronics on steering wheel volume, disc/station selection, fan control, etc. Third row seat more comfortable than competitors. Also 3rd row folds down when cargo space is needed, unlike other competitors which require removal. Safety was a factor in purchase. Overall great vehicle for the price.


Best Features

The comfortable leather seats are nice and the DVD player with headphones is a great accessory for the family.


Worst Features

Center console could have been designed for better use. It is one large compartment. No other complaints.

2006 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV 4WD (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Very comfortable and safe. Fuel economy is much better than reports. As much as 20 mpg on the highway (under 70 mph). Wish the back up sensors were a little more sensitive.


Best Features

Ride. Heated/cooled seats.


Worst Features

More sensitive back up sensors.

2006 Ford Expedition XLT 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

While getting only about 14 MPG in city, the XLT does better than predicted on the highway, with most average rates running around 20MPG (with no air conditioning running). Expect to drop 2 MPG for the air. It is comfortable and highly maneuverable on the road.


Best Features

Economy (for a large SUV, it isn't bad).


Worst Features

Paint job is pitiful in some areas on my 2003 (the "other" car). Rust in front spoiler started within a couple months. Ford said they weren't responsible. Paint was thin on doors and window trim. Should be thicker or more durable.

2006 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV 4WD (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Wanted one for a long time and finally could afford it. Love the size. I'm a big guy so it is very comfortable for me. Love the sound system. Subwoofer is great. DVD player is great too. Mine is loaded. Being a big guy, the A/C & heated seats take a while to feel them working but it's a nice feature. I'm realistic about gas mileage. It's a big truck, what do you expect? Stock tires are TERRIBLE! BEWARE! Mine cupped at 13,000 miles! Also, there's an annoying ticking noise coming from around the moonroof. Dealer said they need to schedule a day to find it. Overall, love my truck. Wish Ford would sell with suitable tires. I'm upgrading to 24" rims and tires anyway.


Best Features

DVD/ audio system, A/C heated seats, power fold 3rd row, 40/20/40 2nd row.


Worst Features

TIRES, TIRES, TIRES! Build quality. Should not hear ticking and/or rattling from such an expensive vehicle.
