As GOOD As An American SUV Can Get!

2007 Ford Expedition XLT 4dr SUV 4WD (5.4L 8cyl 6A)
We ALWAYS wanted a full-size SUV and of course it was the mileage problem that stopped us from doing so. Having made up our minds to go ahead, 2007 was ideal as the the New Expy was out. We had a lot of SUVs to choose from which made buying one not only tough but almost impossible because the magic dies out if you're unable to choose the right one quickly enough. Stuck between the Armada and the Tahoe, we gave EXPY as look. It was love at first sight. We booked it after few reviews here and there, comparisons and a test drive. Ours is like one of the only ten in the whole country (UAE-1st consignment) and the only one in black. I already feel like a celebrity LOL. It is surely the best in its class!
Macho grille, straight pulling door handles, third row leg room, a ride that glides (the new framework and rear independent. suspension), 6-speed transmission, smooth gear shifts (quite as good as upper-class aedans), cargo room, iPod jack, interior design, cabin and external lights turn on when unlocked. BEST value SUV!
Should've standardized the Journey management center. Should've had 1 touch window operations on all 4 doors. The Pirelli tires are good but should've been wider. The steering wheel should've been spiced up a bit more, maybe chrome for XLT and wood trim for the Eddie Bauer. Some exterior panels were loose.
