See the world in my expedition.

I love it because it is high and I can see all the traffic in front of me. I like the information that the computer gives me, like 'low tire' or 'washer fluid needed.' I like the way the seats work and the ease in which they work. I wish that the driver's side window would not go all the way down when you push the button. The owner's manual is not particularly intuitive, for instance, I still haven't figured out how to automatically set the seats and mirrors. I also cannot figure out how to get the backup beeper to work again. The computer notifies me that the beeper is not working but I cannot figure out how to make it work.

The Ford expedition. . . A truly great experience!

I really do like my Ford expedition. It is an Eddie Bauer edition, so it has a lot of extras on it. I absolutely love the heated seats and mirrors! It drives and handles beautifully! This is a very comfortable ride. . . And I enjoy driving on both long and short trips. The only thing I do not like is the incredibly low gas mileage. It gets about 13 mpg, and seems like I am always spending a lot of time at the gas pumps. Overall, though, I love my Ford expedition!

What a great family vehicle.

My 2006 ford expedition is a great family car. It has three rows of seating of which two rows fold down for lots of cargo space. It handles great locally and on the highway. It has front and rear heat and air conditioning controls for everyone's comfort. Because this is a large, heavy vehicle it is not fuel efficient. It can also tow a boat and trailer with ease.

- Diane M

Great vehicle for being older.

I love my expedition. It has so much room and very comfortable. I Have the option of six passengers with the three row seating. I usually only use the two rows and have the rest for storage. The vehicle seems to have a lot of legroom, and headroom. My vehicle is pretty basic but that is ok. It is drives very nice and haven't had any sort of problems with it.

- Cass O

Good sized vehicle, easily converts to smaller if extra backseat space is needed.

I love this vehicle, however we have encountered a few problems. The electrical wiring on one side of the car needs some work, and the catalytic converter filters need replaced. Neither of these problems have put the car out of commission, but they do incur cost and concern. This car runs well, has good space, and is comfortable, would recommend!

Loving our v8 triton expedition.

I absolutely love my expedition! We have 2 small children & we travel a lot. It has plenty of room for 2 large car seats with plenty of room to pack all of our stuff. I also love that, it has a v8 triton! Living a rural area it is awesome in the winter! I cannot say enough good things about my fords, we love Ford so much we own 3 of them.

Long-standing Ford expedition family vehicle.

My expedition has been our long standing family vehicle. We can safely pack and fit our family in this car, for long or short trips. It has been an extremely reliable car needing only required maintenance with over 150k miles. The entertainment system was important when the kids were younger but as they are adults it is less needed.

- Heather B

My sunroof is very useful on a cool evening.

I have had one major problem with my expedition the computer needed to be replaced since then it is worked fine it is very good on gas and it is easy to maneuver. The 7 seat. Are really a plus for me when the grandkids need a ride. I find that it is not too crowded with car seats and booster seats the DVD player is a welcome asset.

- Lilly M

Great family car for all your needs.

Love my vehicle, the ease of driving, it sits up high which I love. The seats are comfortable, there is plenty of room in back and even has 3 seats in very back which is awesome for extra friends or children, and all 3 of my kids car seats fit in middle row without having to have 3rd row in use. Love and would buy this model again.

- Brittany C

My Ford expedition and why I love it.

I absolutely love my expedition. It has plenty of room for luggage, groceries and anything else you need to haul around with you. It is roomy and comfortable to take on long trips. I also like that it has a tv/DVD player to keep my kids occupied. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone with a large family who needs plenty of room.

- Ashley K

Cons. Fail safe mode. Gasoline.

It needs a lot of gasoline. I spend about 30 or 40 dollars per week on gasoline. Also on winter time something that is call fail safe mode gets activated in the morning so you cannot drive. You have to warm it up for more than 20 minutes. Then turn the car off and back on and if you are lucky it might work again.

- Marina C

The cow leather captain style seats are extremely comfortable.

Had to replace the transmission at around 120, 000 miles. Also have had to change out several engine coils. Bought used so not sure what issues were before us. No other problems with the vehicle. Our 5. 4L has a clicking noise in the engine that our mechanic tells us he's heard from others of the same year.

- Rose D

Easy to get in & out for old people & short people.

1-i can start it from inside the house in winter cold months. 2-seats a lot of people. 3-i don't like that used tires are hard to find & if u do find them are very expensive. 4-seats move up close to pedals. 5-the car is easy to control in snow. 6-air conditioner works very well. 7-heater works very well.

- Mary S

Ford expedition: reliable and strong.

I have always been a Ford fan. The king ranch expedition is a really great choice for our family. Other than general maintenance we've had no issues at all. At the 140, 000 mile marker we had to have the plugs and coils changed to the tune of around 400 dollars but that is not really to bad considering.

- Brandon L

Very reliable and comfortable for large family

We have had this vehicle for 9 years and it has been very reliable for us. I like that it fits the entire family comfortably. It gets horrible gas mileage, but that is to be expected for this large of a vehicle. We usually get 14 mpg. I hope to keep this vehicle for another couple years

- Jennifer F

Low mileage expedition but very comfortable.

There are no problems besides the fact that the car only gets 6 miles per gallon because it is so old. It has almost 200,000 miles on it but is still running well. The mileage is the only real problem. The vehicle is comfortable to be in as it has heated seats for when it is cold out.

- Georgia B

Ford excellence at it is best!

I have only owned my vehicle for 3 years but in those 3 years I haven't had an6 problems with it. My SUV drives, runs and looks great. I will say it has done what I have needed it to in the years of owning it and the 4WD has got me out of many of the bad New England winter.

- Edward M

The thing I love most about my expedition is the ceiling a/c in the backseat.

My 2006 Ford expedition has been a great car! It has high miles and still runs like new. This is an awesome car for a large family or for someone who travels with lots of luggage. It has third row seating and seats 8 people and still has plenty of room in the trunk.

- Miranda B

Good for bigger families. Not just the number of people but little larger in size people.

For a 2006 it still runs great. We have had very little maintenance required. The engine is strong and the ride is comfortable for my family of 6. We go out of town often and it travels nice. The only negative is the plastic parts inside are not lasting as long.

- Andrea N

When you fold the seats down, you seriously have the capacity of moving things like you would in a truck.

I love how much room it has inside. I love how well it handles, drives very smooth. I love how safe it would be in an accident. I dislike the gas mileage. I dislike parking it in small spaces. I dislike that an SUV costs more on insurance.

- Shannon K

Even though it is big it handles really well.

I love the amount of space inside, both for cargo and passengers. I also like that it has a separate controlled rear air conditioning. I like how it drives and the amount of power it has. The only thing I really hate is the gas mileage.

- Dawn D

Like a brick outhouse. Sturdy, does what you need, but unnecessary.
