2006 Ford Expedition SUV Limited 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)
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.
A/C works very well. Air conditioned seats are great!
Needs to continue wood grain accents on the dash. Make middle seats captains chair standard. Of course better gas mileage.

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.
The comfortable leather seats are nice and the DVD player with headphones is a great accessory for the family.
Center console could have been designed for better use. It is one large compartment. No other complaints.
2006 Ford Expedition SUV XLT 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)
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.
Economy (for a large SUV, it isn't bad).
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.

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.
