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!
1998 Buyer Beware
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.
Great Example of an Expedition...I guess?
2012 Ford ExpeditionStuart Engelking - Redington Shores, FL06/19/2016
if someone didn't know much or hadn't had a nicer SUV before, then they would like it. or if they liked driving ford trucks.
But for me, it was boring, top heavy, missing features, slow, hard to take turns, styling hasn't changed since...ever, looks like an Explorer
King Ranch Edition is nice, i guess, only difference is brown saddle leather seats, which feel like sitting on a saddle...on a horse, very hard, not comfortable, i could never get comfortable with the seat/steering wheel location, never felt like the right spot. Every bump you hit left aftershocks that bounced on forever. Had this for 3 months, tried to like it, sometimes did like it, then realized, i just didn't like it...
