2007 Ford Expedition EL Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV 4WD (5.4L 8cyl 6A)
Make sure you do a very good check on the SUV before you buy and make sure the dealer tells you everything that's wrong with the electronics before you buy. Make sure the dealer is very friendly and is very willing to work with you and your needs meet. Other than that I LOVE My New Truck!!!!

I purchased my EL in 2010 with 36000 miles on it and have loved it ever since. Better fuel mileage than my 03 Pilot. Purchased it so we could by a travel trailer, pulls it like a dream. This is my first Ford and I have been very happy. Never short on power, best ride of any vehicle I've owned, great look, wonderful features. Have about 70,000 miles on it now, hoping to get another 130k plus.
The one thing I miss with my GM is the tow mode tranny. Seems like the Ford just cuts off gears 5 and 6 and says tow away. The GM actually changes shift points and manages the towing. If the suburban would come with a duramax or at least the Allison tranny, I'd consider a trip back to GM.

I broke down 3.5 wks ago and it was determined I need a new fuel pump. Apparently, according to the Reg Mgr at Ford, they are having Supply Chain issues and they have NO replacement fuel pumps at this time anywhere in the country. They have an Emergancy order set up for me but I am being told it probably won't be in until sometime in Sept. Can you imagine being told you can't use your car for over 2 months because Ford didn't monitor their inventory properly? They blame it on he suppliers but something was completely mismanaged here. This isn't an old car and this is a common part. I'm not sure if they had a rush of defects at once or this is how it is going to be for any part I need.
I have 4 kids and a dog and we travel every weekend in the summer.
This car was purchased to haul our family and all our gear and up until my recent issue I loved it.
I also have a 2004 (not EL) that we had good luck with.
I was planning on upgrading to a newer Expedition but was waiting for the new design to be released (hearing 2014).
After the way Ford has handled the most recent fuel pump issue I plan on being FORD free soon.
The Expedition was roughly 1K over the extended warranty I had purchased and they won't give me a loaner/rental.
Apparently they think it is OK for me to pay for a rental for over 2 months due to their Supply Chain issues.
Ford needs to understand that doing the right thing will pay off in the long run.
Telling me that they have no obligation to me because I am slightly out of warranty is wrong especially since I told them I would buy a new Expedition EL when it comes out.
How can they think that it is ok for anyone to have to rent a car for over 2 months because they have acknowledged inventory problems?
I want to be loyal to them but the way they have handled this issue I will NEVER own Ford again.
