Best family vehicle we've owned

2008 Ford Expedition EL SSV Fleet 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 6A)


This is the best family vehicle we have ever owned and we love it. We already have 40K miles on it (never in the shop except for oil changes and tire rotations) because we love taking vacations in it. We traded in our '03 Town and Country and the difference is night and day. So much more interior room and versatility without much difference in parking or gas mileage. We average 16 in every day use and 18 on highway at 75-80 mph. Our van only averaged 19 and got 17 with the cargo topper on the roof! Now we have so much room we don't need it (family of 6 plus a large dog). Very quiet and comfortable ride. Cheaper but much better value than imports or Sub/Tahoe. Can't say enough, great truck!

Best Features

Cargo room, passenger room, towing ability, comfort, quiet ride, safety, 6spd auto, 4WD in winter and on mountain roads, independent suspension, rear AC, fold flat rear and middle seats, overall versatility, decent fuel economy for the size, bright red color, extended length body style, reliability.

Worst Features

Diesel engine for better fuel economy. Different interior materials/colors that don't get dirty so easy. Exterior styling is great but the Suburban/Tahoe looks just a little better in my opinion. Better fit and finish on rear tailgate (being really picky saying that). Nothing else!!
