2008 Ford Expedition SUV Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

We own an '07 Tahoe alongside an '08 Expedition. I don't know how the EPA got their MPG figures but in the similar driving, I am getting slightly better MPG in the Expedition and I believe it is because of its 6 speed transmission as opposed to the Tahoe's abysmal 4 speed. The Tahoe has better off the line torque but its 4 speed logic makes downshifting a "forget about it" scenario. The transmission in this car is beautiful, upshifts/downshifts at precisely the right times and it doesn't quarrel with the driver. This car rockets along at higher speeds but lacks the punch of the Tahoe at low speeds. Interior noise is pin-drop quite at low speeds but picks up a lot of wind noise on the highway


Best Features

Buttery smooth "crown-vic" like handling makes road imperfections go unnoticed, cooled seats, the perforated leather on the leather seats, good light offroad capability, although visibility is excellent in this car, the backup camera is a very welcome option


Worst Features

Brakes are less reliable than that of the Tahoe's but are easier to modulate, low end torque, steering feel could be better, seats aren't as comfortable as the Tahoe's, wind noise needs better insulation on the highway, mediocre paint job, door sills are too heavy and don't have that holding feature that is executed perfectly on the Tahoe

2008 Ford Expedition SUV Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

I bought my eddie bauer with 50k now have 56k, nice smooth ride with enough power compared to 97 expi and 98 navi i owned before. I also have complaints about slowness of power windows and its refusal to work on a very cold morning but when sun came out they worked again. I also had a rear diff seal break but was fixed under powertrain warranty at dealer. Over all I enjoy my expi would buy again


Best Features

Air conditioned seats, power folding rear seats, interior room, smooth ride, price


Worst Features

power windows, xenon headlights option

2008 Ford Expedition SUV Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

500 mile trips. Hauling kayaks, bikes, and stuff for the twins, the Eddie gets better with age. Pile on the payload and it still rides level. Being 6'6" it's the only vehicle I can move the seats up & still fit. Mileage is amazing - getting 20 mpg (3.31 rear end)highway doing the speed limit. Overall Average 16-18 mpg. DVD keeps the twins entertained, while the NAV gets us where we go. No complaints, no regrets. Looking to purchase a travel trailer and the 9K pound capability expands our choices. If you're thinking cross over platform the Expedition is a better choice.

Review

After reading reviews here I decided to purchase a 2008 Eddie Bauer Expedition. I consider other SUVs including Toyota Sequoia and Chevy Tahoe but now I glad I selected the Ford.


Best Features

3rd row power folding seats,this was the deciding factor over the Chevy Tahoe. Rear DVD entertainment system is great, with headphones my kids can enjoy their movies and I can enjoy my music.


Worst Features

Power folding mirrors should be standard on Eddie Bauer.

Review

Just puchased an 08 Exp Eddie Bauer 2wd. Looks great, drives great, and good fuel mileage for the size. Only issue is the DRL, there is no option to turn them off. Other than that, no complaints.


Best Features

Seats, interior design, exterior design


Worst Features

Option to turn off the DRL.
