How Long Will the Japanese Myth Last?

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

Review

10 months and 2700 miles later I'm impressed with the rock solid, quiet interior, great road manners, surprisingly stable, short braking, and 14/20 MPG. I've owned 3 different Japanese vehicles in the past, but given this massive Ford's decent-for- class mileage and quality, I sure am glad I resisted the inclination to get a Sequoia and pocketed the extra $9,000. This SUV is the hidden gem in the field. Just compare its third row to the equivalent regular wheelbase GM, Rover, Infiniti, and Toyota, and you'll know that Ford's engineers have slaved as hard as their accountants to produce untouchable SUV value. Finally, I find it exudes a strikingly handsome blend of toughness and aristocracy.

Best Features

Vault solid, slightly arrogant looks, and handling.

Worst Features

Even with power pedals pushed all the way back the driver's seat/steering wheel/pedal geometry is a bit cramped for 6-foot and taller or long-legged people. Just add a telescoping steering column to allow legs to stretch out, not arms, which should have a comfortable bend, not a "reaching" posture.
