2006 Ford Expedition SUV Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV 4WD (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Very comfortable and safe. Fuel economy is much better than reports. As much as 20 mpg on the highway (under 70 mph). Wish the back up sensors were a little more sensitive.


Best Features

Ride. Heated/cooled seats.


Worst Features

More sensitive back up sensors.

2006 Ford Expedition SUV XLT 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

While getting only about 14 MPG in city, the XLT does better than predicted on the highway, with most average rates running around 20MPG (with no air conditioning running). Expect to drop 2 MPG for the air. It is comfortable and highly maneuverable on the road.


Best Features

Economy (for a large SUV, it isn't bad).


Worst Features

Paint job is pitiful in some areas on my 2003 (the "other" car). Rust in front spoiler started within a couple months. Ford said they weren't responsible. Paint was thin on doors and window trim. Should be thicker or more durable.

2006 Ford Expedition SUV Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV 4WD (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Wanted one for a long time and finally could afford it. Love the size. I'm a big guy so it is very comfortable for me. Love the sound system. Subwoofer is great. DVD player is great too. Mine is loaded. Being a big guy, the A/C & heated seats take a while to feel them working but it's a nice feature. I'm realistic about gas mileage. It's a big truck, what do you expect? Stock tires are TERRIBLE! BEWARE! Mine cupped at 13,000 miles! Also, there's an annoying ticking noise coming from around the moonroof. Dealer said they need to schedule a day to find it. Overall, love my truck. Wish Ford would sell with suitable tires. I'm upgrading to 24" rims and tires anyway.


Best Features

DVD/ audio system, A/C heated seats, power fold 3rd row, 40/20/40 2nd row.


Worst Features

TIRES, TIRES, TIRES! Build quality. Should not hear ticking and/or rattling from such an expensive vehicle.

2006 Ford Expedition SUV King Ranch 4dr SUV 4WD (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

The Expedition is a solid ride, and with the King Ranch package feels like a luxury car, but with all the SUV advantages. It also has power to spare and handles really well for its size. It's a great looking vehicle!


Best Features

The special leather seats, the wood grain steering wheel (with audio and climate controls), the sunroof, and the automatic third row seat controls.


Worst Features

A third cup holder in the second row seats, and a built in phone system like Onstar.

2006 Ford Expedition SUV XLS 4dr SUV 4WD (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Shopped for tow vehicle. Compared Yukon and Tahoe. For the price, it was a "no brainer". Upgraded ugly stock rims and added step bars and floor mats (all aftermarket). The vehicle handles great for a big SUV. Engine is adequate and tows better than others in its class. The whining about fuel mileage on a vehicle this size is pointless. It's what you can expect. Overall a very good choice for towing and a large interior.


Best Features

Road handling, towing ability, seats, basic sound system is very good.


Worst Features

So far none. I got more than I paid for.
