2005 Ford Expedition XLS 4WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Generally a good full-size SUV. Plenty of room, comfortable first and third row seats. Second row seats OK but cushions are too low. Limited headroom in front row. Good all-weather SUV; very good in snow. Some interior squeaks and rattles, mostly in cold weather. Poor mileage; 10-12 mpg in the city. 28 gallon gas tank = $84 fill ups at $3/gallon. Won't fit in some parking garages.


Best Features

Low-range 4-wheel drive, plenty of cargo room, good looking exterior. Good crash scores.


Worst Features

More headroom in front seats for taller drivers. Improved mpg. Better quality switches and knobs.

2005 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer Rwd 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)

This is a great vehicle. I get 20 mph on the road. I am not tired after a 1000 mile trip in one day. Very reliable. Much better than the Mercedes suv that I owned.


Best Features

Comfort on long trips. Good quality.


Worst Features

Adjustable seat back [electric].

2005 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer Rwd 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I traded my '99 Eddie Bauer Expedition for this one and within a 4 month period my 2005 had been in the shop more times than my 1999 model had been over a period of 6 years. I've had problems with the gas pedal, electric seats, a piece of interior molding fell off by itself, and numerous rattles in the dash that the dealership employees can't seem to hear but everyone else that rides with me can. With only 8500 miles and 8 months of wear, the value has gone from the $37K that we paid to $22K (what the dealership will give for it now). I've contacted Ford Motor Company about a buy back or replacement but that was a big waste of time. I won't be buying another Ford!


Best Features

I purchased the car because I liked the interior layout.

2005 Ford Expedition XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I love my Expedition but shortly after I bought it, gas went sky high. That was a minus but the space and comfort for my family made the purchase very worthwhile.


Best Features

I love the CD player, the DVD player and the third seat. I like my seat to adjust to where I want it to be and I love the image.


Worst Features

I wish that it had a sunroof, moonroof or whatever and I wish that I could unlock both sides with the keyless entry. I also wish the seats had warmers.
