Cheap Hub Dubs
By Frookie Tims on


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


We bought the EL because GM does not feel that adults or children sit in the third row in the Denali or Suburban. Well they lost a sale because of it. Ford knows how to make a third row work for adults over six feet. Everyone is comfy in all rows.The engine is under powered and the EL is heavy aka its slow. The six speed tranny does give you the feeling of speed but realiity can set in quickly...ie merging. The gadgets are great like the power folding 3rd row and the back door. The seats are great all around. We noticed the leather seats were longer than the cloth seats..yes odd. The gas mileage is not good. Fake chrome Dubs is very bad..chrome covers? Why, Ford why?

Best Features

The back up camera is great. The stereo sounds good. Sirius for only 6 months after paying 54k seems cheap. Folding 3rd row is great so is the power rear door. 3rd row leg room is great. A/C in seats. Storage bins in cargo area floor and the package tray. Seatbelts don't grab or ratchet down on you.

Worst Features

Hub dubs.The 20" rims have a chrome cover on them. They're fake chrome rims. Better Sirius antenna. No more cheap woodtone plastic trim. Bluetooth with the Nav. More info in the Nav. More powerful engine. More intuitive information center. Better button placement/sizing. Needs HIDS on upper models
