Good looks, but needs improvement
By digerati on


2009 Ford Expedition EL Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (5.4L 8cyl 6A)


The design of the vehicle inside and out are great and have a "tough" look and feel to it. There's lots of room, comfortable, and quiet inside. The power running boards integrates to the Expedition nicely, unlike the GM SUVs with the feature, which leaves unsightly gaps, unlike the Ford. Great comfort for all 8 seats. Plus the SYNC was easy to use. Build quality can be improved however. SYNC radio won't turn on using the power button, heated/cooled seats won't leave on, rear air suspension is noisy and vibrates, the power driver's seat rocks back and forth slightly, plastic chips and wood quality on steering wheel not good, chrome wheels has tarnish that was impossible to remove, etc.

Best Features

SYNC, power running boards, all roomy seats, cooled seats, quietness, foldable shelf in cargo area of EL models. However, the engine needs more pick up for passing on the highway...

Worst Features

Make front mud flaps compatible with power running boards, improve the plastic quality as well as the wood quality of the steering wheel, improve the chrome quality of the 20" wheels, make the rear air suspension quieter and vibration free, improve the smooth engagement of control-trac 4x4 in auto
