Best Value for a minivan alternative

2008 Ford Expedition EL dpeterman77 - , 04/22/2013

Although the price for a brand new one, matches that of better alternatives (Toyota Sequoia), as a pre-owned, the value can't be beat. comfor and styling of the interior are top notch. the Limited EL with bucket seats provides everything you need. The only thing that was misleading was the "phone' button on the Nav system. Apparently there is an add-on required for that button to be functional. I assumed that having the voice steering wheel controls, and the Nav system (with the phone button) this would be included, but it was not. If handsfree communication is a must for you, make sure you ask!

Suited for its purpose

2008 Ford Expedition EL BobV - , 02/10/2013

We bought the 2008 Ford Expedition EL, 4WD specifically to tow a 25-foot travel trailer. We have not been disappointed. It performs well when towing, with adequate power and solid, confident handling characteristics. The fuel mileage while towing has been slightly disappointing (12 mpg) but is pretty much in line with what others have reported, and may be slightly better. If I keep the speed around 60, I think 12 will be the minimum. We have been quite pleased with other features of the car: comfort, convenience, handling and overall feel of quality. As far as we are concerned the biggest cons are its size (very large for getting in and out of parking spaces), and the fuel economy. However, when not towing it appears that mileage in the upper teens will be achievable as long as I drive at a reasonable speed; in fact, 20 mpg might be achievable. But the drawbacks were not unexpected; there are tradeoffs when one needs a vehicle that can tow a trailer. Plus, a pleasant surprise has been its tight turning radius for a vehicle as long as it is. Overall we are very pleased with the Expedition and enjoy its level of comfort when we are not towing. If we had an opportunity to make the choice again, I feel confident that we would again choose an Expedition for our application."

Expedition EL

2008 Ford Expedition EL hez4reel - , 02/27/2013

First let me say that I was very hesitant to purchase another Ford Expedition. I owned a 2005 Eddie Bauer Expedition previously and had nothing but problems, the fuel injectors were bad and before I hit 30,000 miles it was in the shop having the lower half of the engine replaced. I never even took it back from the dealer, traded in on the spot. I swore then that I would never own another Ford product. Well, that was until now. For the price, the Expedition is the best value for the cost. Now that I have this 2008 Expedition, I have to say that I remember now why I purchased the first one. I LOVE IT! It sits up high, so you feel like you're in a truck (which I like), it rides very smooth, the passenger room (in the EL at least) is wonderful (I tote 5 kids so we have plenty of room) and the design/appeal is terrific. Now I'm still praying that I don't have issues with this one like I did with the last, but so far, I love my Expedition!
