Overall a Great American SUV with Space
By Jay Zar on
2007 Ford Expedition SSV Fleet 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 6A)
Overall, this SUV does what it was designed to do... haul loads with comfort and reliabilty. For the price, it is worth it. Some of the materials are cheap, but the build quality is done well. Space is great and the power is there. On the freeway I get 17 mpg. In the city I get 14 to 15. Hauling 800 lbs it could drop about 1mpg, but not on the freeway, still about 17 unless I am towing. I did install zenon bulbs and a better air filter, which did help. I use 87 octane. The sound system is excellent. The steering and brakes and turning handle as expected, solid, not sporty, but not sloppy. I have 20" wheels and the braking is great. I added my own back up camera, but the 2009's come with one.
Cooled seats, roomy, navigation, easy entry and egress, fun to drive.
Of course... better mpg, better interior quality, back up camera.
