Traded in our Grand Cherokee for our
Eddie Bauer. Love how much room this
truck has even with the 3rd seat in it.
Taking the 3rd seat out, is like a
pickup truck. Thoe it is kinda heavy
and bulky. Very comfortable seats and
ride. Ours has air suspension, very
nice on highways. Like a Lincoln. Great
sound system. Rear air and radio
controls are nice for kids. Pulls our
23ft boat very good to the river. Cant
wait to purchase a new eddie bauer
expedition. This is my 4th ford. No

At 55,000 miles we had a major
transmission problem and simultaneously
the enginge blew! During the next
10,000 miles it has been in the shop
more days than out. It currently sits
in the shop to have $2,000+ of
transmission repairs completed. Ford
could care less and has done nothing to
help compsenate after persistant follow-
up on my part. I strongly urge careful
consideration and research prior to
purchase of a Ford product.

I average 20 m.p.g. on the highway on
flat terrain, but the 4.6 liter does
have to work in the hills and the
vehicle is loaded. After 4 years the
truck is still in excellent shape and
has not been in the shop for repair
excepting a loose wire on the back up
system. 5 star safety rating was a
factor in purchase. Ford needs a 8-way
seat as seen in the Honda Pilot.
After year 3 (warranty expiration), we
braced for any breakdown.
Apart from the differential gear seal
leak and one set of new tires, we've
had no problems (major nor minor).
The leather option is starting to show
its wear (once I added lotion to my
elbow, it stop wearing down).
Great kid car.
