Great SUV - despite shortcomings

2006 Ford Expedition SSV Fleet 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)
I love this vehicle! Spent a lot of time researching, even spent a year with a Jeep Grand Cherokee Hemi before dumping that in favor of the roomier Expedition Limited. During the buying processes I couldn't get the salesman to talk about or demo the navigation system - there was a reason for that - it's disgusting. Save yourself $2k and get an aftermarket Nav like the Pioneer. I also ordered the Bluetooth from the Ford accessory book but the dealer put in a third party system that doesn't match anything! Great vehicle but what Ford really needs to do is pay attention to how Toyota and Chrysler deliver the details and most of all how they provide service.
Seating and space. After a year in a '05 Jeep Hemi, I really like the ride, handling and space! Plenty of power, certainly fewer tickets than the hemi.
A decent nav system. Get up to speed on the details (Bluetooth, Onstar, iPod)
