1998 Ford ExpeditionSoaringPilot - Atlanta, GA11/24/2006
Overall the truck has been very useful and has a ton of room in it. The engine is strong and performs well. The problem is the reliability and costs to maintain.
Fords are supposed to have a reputation of unmatched reliability and longevity...and that may be correct if you keep pouring money in it.
The differential had to be rebuilt, the heater core had to be replaced (and there is still rust in the system). The cooling is starting to die and to top it off, at 140,000 miles (with less than 1 yr old plugs) a spark plug blew out of the engine requiring a $3600 repair. After researching, this is not an isolated incident and not very rare at all in any of the Ford Triton engines.
Just do a search on FORD SPARK PLUG PROBLEMS and see what you find. It's a great truck for the room and performance...but gets a big "F" for reliability.
Ford Expedition is worth every penny
2006 Ford ExpeditionWe love our Ford - Augusta, GA06/05/2011
We are a family of nine. We recently purchased a nine passenger 2006 Ford Expedition and have been in love with this SUV ever since the initial test drive. It drives very smoothly and is very spacious. All nine of sit very comfortably. We would certainly recommend this vehicle to people who have large families. We love our Ford!
Love the Ford Expedition, 2009
2009 Ford ExpeditionSteve USA - Youngsville, NC07/08/2016
Great full size SUV. Not the extended version so it's not too big. Great for going on road trips with the family as there is plenty of room and conveniences inside. Best of all, she rides great for her size. Nice and smooth and comfortable, does not ride like a stiff pickup.
The Ford F-150, the top-searched vehicle on carmax.com in 2017, has a heck-raising version called the SVT Raptor. Love it or not, the Ford Raptor is impossible to ignore. It rules the road (and dirt, mud, sand, etc.)!
SUVs are known for not just their seating and towing capacity, but their versatile cargo space and capable performance. In the market for a midsize SUV? Check out three of our best-selling midsize SUVs from January through September 2017.
