Ford expedition! Hands down the best large size SUV.

The ford expedition is an amazing vehicle. I have the extended version. The room is hands down the best. It has a third row with the same space as the other seats. Even with the third row the amount of space in the back for everything under the sun is a major plus. It rarely breaks down. I have not had many issues with it. Just the regular wear and tear issues like tune ups, tail light bulbs, etc... The only major issue has been a leak coming from the sunroof. My mechanic cleaned out the whole thing and placed a new seal on it and it has been great ever since and no more leaks. The car drives very well even hitting upwards of 80 miles per hour. I call it my tank! It is an amazing vehicle and especially wonderful practical and convenient when you have a large family. I love it and will want to purchase a new model eventually.

We love our 2008 Ford Expedition EL

It has been a great family car! It has typical car issues that happen with any vehicle when it gets over $100K miles. We've replaced what needed to be, but it has all be reasonable. Ours has almost $175K and we just replaced the radiator and hoses. A few things that I wish were more up to date or were more functional...the built in navigation is not current. We purchased a current CD for it, and it never wants to recognize it. So it's essentially a function on the car we do not use at all. I also wish you could load DVD's from the front. It seems that would be a safer option that a driving parent trying to eject/load a DVD while driving down the road. Auto start and heated seats are another feature I miss. My favorite feature on the car is the keypad entry on the driver side. We use that daily!

Built Ford tough? More like built Ford comfy.

My 2008 Ford expedition is not just a car for reliability but also of comfort. I cannot tell you how many nights me and my friends would travel and just drive around in the comfort of my vehicle. In fact, a good friend of mine recently commented on how much he loves my car mainly for the comfort and memories made in it. I never had many problems with my expedition until it reached around probably 150, 000 miles. That is a winner in my book. My car is safe, reliable, and comfortable. Gas is really not that bad either which I know may come as a shock. It is a vehicle I'd recommend to anyone and a vehicle I will use and enjoy for years to come.

Great family vehicle with convenient amenities.

My expedition has been a reliable and safe vehicle. White it does not get great gas mileage, I only drive a short distance to work. It holds 7 adults and is a big and comfortable vehicle. The only issues I have had are in the extreme cold weather with the electrical system (I.E. Side mottos and windows have gotten frozen in place once or twice). Have had some minor repairs done to the car after buying it used in 2012. It has seat warmers and coolers, automatic 3rd row folding seats, a DVD entertainment system, and 2nd row captains chairs. This is my 3rd expedition. They have always been great cars and I have purchased one new and 2 used.

The Ford expedition has seats that have heat and air controls for comfort.

I have not had any problems with my Ford expedition. It is a comfortable vehicle with a really smooth ride and a very nice exterior. . The interior is spacious and well designed for maximum comfort. The seating is great for multiply passengers and pets. The fold down third seat provides a large amount of space for any cargo that you may have. Both the radio and CD player have great sound quality. The DVD player with two sets of headphones has a great picture and sound. The headsets provide entertainment without distracting the driver. This vehicle is extremely sturdy and handles well in all types of weather.

- Nancy P

It has plenty of room and comfort, but is not great for large families.

The Ford Expedition has plenty of room for a large family, but the storage space in the rear needs to be larger. The ride is smooth, quiet and has features to add comfort. The major problem is that a lot of big families choose the Expedition yet the ease of getting small children in and out is terrible. One seat in the middle row must be left folded down at all times, eliminating the use of the extra seat for an added person like a grandparent. I really hope the newer models include the seat that leans forward with a carseat attached like a lot of the vehicle brands.

- Brooke H

El Ford expedition, white seats 8 people.

I love my limited el expedition. I love how I can fit 8 people in it. We got this because we have 4 kids and there is not much leg room in other vehicles we looked at. It has a DVD player in the car which is nice for kids. We have heated/cool seats also. We have automatic running boards which sometimes I do not like because the rocks or mud get stuck in them and then they do not go up and down. I love how the third row seats lay down so you can have more room in the back. We had a Ford Explorer before we had kids, so I knew I wanted a Ford expedition.

- Denise M

It's a white on black 4 door expedition black leather seating and interior.

I love the amount of space my Ford Expedition gives me it great for road trips I have two rows in the back so one row I have my kids car seats and the extra row I can have more guest so that awesome I do however hate how there is always an issue with the ac in Fords I had an ac problem with my old Ford Explorer and now with this one as well it really sucks especially when you live I Miami and it's hot all year round.

- Natasha N

Big enough for the whole family with leg space.

Air ride suspension is temperamental, repairs are expensive but well worth it, gas mileage is on the lower side with only 13 miles per gallon on the Hwy. Regulator on drivers window goes out pretty fast and the air conditioning has gone out. But it's got entertainment for the kids it's safe if ever wrecked well as safe as a wreck can be. Its spacious rides nice.

- Christy S

A study and dependable vehicle.

I enjoy my vehicle. It is sturdy and dependable. The ride is very comfortable. I like the color. The interior is comfortable and roomy as well. It is great to take on long trips. Room for all the things and people. I plan on keeping this vehicle for as long as I can. My family is grown, so I wouldn't get another expedition. I would consider getting another ford.

- Jill G

I love my running boards that let out when you open the door.

My expedition has bend very reliable. I have had very few mechanical issues. It gets decent gas mileage for the size SUV that it is. It is an Eddie Bauer model with tan leather seats. It is easy to keep seats clean. The sun door is nice to have. The liftgate is automatic and it has running birds that let down when you open the door. This is a convenient touch.

- Ashley T

Nice SUV for family, that has fold down seats in the back to make room.

Has been a reliable vehicle. Has a DVD player which is nice when traveling. I like that you have 2 different driver seat settings for different drivers. Also has a button for raising the pedals for people who need to do that. Also has a small back up mirror in the rear view mirror. Works pretty good considering the small area you have to view it.

- Stacy O

Super sized family hauler!

Super roomy, we have 4 kids and it has enough room for all 6 of us and any gear we have to carry also. The only issues we have had with the vehicle thus far was the ac fan had to be replaced for the front. I was able to do the job myself and it only cost me around $70. I would recommend a Ford expedition el to anyone with a large family.

- Matt C

We love our family vehicle.

We have not experienced any major problems since purchasing our used SUV in 2014. We have taken multiple road trips without any issues. Our family of 5 is very comfortable with the 3 rows of seating. The features included everything we wanted in a vehicle. Leather seats, CD changer, DVD player, sunroof, and the automatic step.

- Terrica P

Heated seats, moonroof, in dash navigation and tows up to 9300 lbs.

One of the best vehicles I've owned. Great smooth ride, tows great. Comfort and many features. Gas mileage is about average for this class. Love the heated and cooled seat, navigation and three rows of seats. I now have 190k miles and the truck runs great. Very reliable. Comfortable when driving long trips.

- Joe V

Fabulous car and I will buy a brand new one when it is time to get a new car.

Fabulous car, easy drive and very few issues in the 10 years I have owned it. There is plenty of room, it drives very smooth on the main streets and highways. I have the el so there is extra space in the back even if the 3rd row is up. I will buy another one of these cars when it is time to get a new one.

- Ashley E

i just love my car

I bought the expedition knowing the dealership was not very reliable in my vehicle's maintenance. I research the best Ford dealership in a 100 miles radius. I found a dealer approx. 20 Miles from my home. Know who your dealer is, it really helps. I have had no problems with the expedition. I love it.

- Gregory H

Ford expedition: best family hauler.

I love my Ford Expedition. I drive it every day to take my children to school and to do errands around town. It is also the vehicle that we take when we go on vacation or to visit relatives. We like it because it is extremely roomy. It also gets great gas mileage for the size of vehicle that it is.

- James C

2008 ford expedition review.

The air suspension has gone out twice and now my transmission is acting up. It also does not get good gas mileage. Over all, my family and I have really liked this automobile. The children really enjoy the entertainment system and live watching DVDs in the car. It is also a very comfortable car.

- Sarah W

My opinion and likes on my SUV.

I love driving it in the snow or at the beach in the sand. Drives smoothly, picks up speed quickly, handles corners at smoothly on high speeds. Seats 8 people comfortable. We use it for camping, lay all the seats down, blow up bed, still have room on sides for fishing poles, and our baggage.

- Tammy B

Great SUV, will take you anywhere.

Great ride. Very spacious and roomy. Very few problems and will last you a very long time. You can invest in this vehicle and not worry about trading it in for many years. My vehicle is at 175,000 miles and haven't had to do much maintenance other than regular oil changes and servicing.

- Nicholas H

White on black Ford expedition 4 door.

My vehicle is a Ford expedition 4 door black interior it had a navigation system and a DVD player the only issue with this car and all fords is the a/c system always gets messed up my front a/c vent don't work but my a/c in the back does I feel like this is a common issue with fords.

- Natasha N

Low quality details on the Ford expedition.

My biggest problem is the quality of the leather seats. The driver seat leather split in the seam. Also the leather on the mid section compartment split. I purchased the higher limited edition, however quality is not worth it. Also the electric side boards fail in the cold weather.

- Pat W

This is the 2nd expedition I owned and they are great trucks. The only issues I had was the starter went and needed to have the mounts replaced. Other than that just normal wear and tear stuff that anyone would need to have done. All in all they are great trucks that last.

- Gary H

Our vehicle is versatile. We can pick friends for practice, take the dog for a drive, or go for a long road trip easily by the push of a button for seating.

I like that it has a lot of space. We can comfortably travel long distances and have plenty of room for our family of four and our luggage. The gas mileage is not the greatest but manageable. Our family and our dog all love this vehicle and would recommend it.

- Starlett S

It seats 8 and is great for long family road trips.

Other than having coil pack and spark plug problems the expedition has problem free for may year. It seats 8 and is not to bad on gas average is about 15 mpg. Tires are expensive due to third size in ten years I just put a third set on at 150, 000 miles.

- Craig M

Even if you hate the ford brand this vehicle had been 100% dependable and fits a large family perfectly.

I love my Ford Expedition because with four kids that play sports it fit our family and all the stuff we need. I have had my vehicle for a few years and haven't had any major issues with it. It has been a very dependable car for us and is a great size.

- Jasi P

Overall, it drives really smoothly and is very quiet.

I love it despite the gages and gasometer is not steady it moves backwards and forward as the car stops. And I do not car much for the creamed carpets. And the thermostat is starting to stick I'm constantly putting water in it every few days!.

- Courtney M

Expedition Ford review great vehicle

This SUV has been perfect for traveling long distance, camping. It has many bells and whistles such as temperature controlled seats, individual control temperature for front seats, TV monitor. Starting to rust which is disappointing.

- Audrone S

Cargo space and comfortable.

The expedition has a spacious interior, comfortable seats. Excellent cargo space. It also has a third row seat that folds down for more room. This vehicle rides smooth like a car but can work like a truck. It's the best of both.

- Patricia W

Great features. Lots of room. Really no issues. But the engine.

I love my vehicle and all the features. However my engine has a huge issue and it blows spark plugs every week. I guess it's the issue with all 5.4 triton engines. I wasn't told about it til after I bought it. lemon.

- Stacey F

This vehicle has good gas mileage for its size.

This vehicle is roomy and great for traveling with our family. I find that this vehicle is hard to repair and they rust very easily. Also, I find that the sensors turn on easily even if there’s not a problem.

- Sara N

Our SUV is unbelievably reliable!!!! If you want something big and reliable for long trips, or for your big family, the Expedition is certainly it.

It is perfect for our big family. Has spacious room between the rows, for long legs. A nice sized trunk area, for my love of shopping!! The only downfall to a big SUV, is the gas mileage and cost of filling up.

- Beth P

It is reliable and a very smooth ride.

It has been wonderful for camping trips, long car trip vacations and when needing to haul large items. It is a very smooth ride. Some of the electronic items are not working anymore i. E. Heated/cooled seats.

- Audrey S

I don't feel like it's fully reliable. Every time we get in it we have a new light or warning flashing at us.

I don't like how everything is going wrong with it. Not enough space. Don't like the automatic opening of the back it goes too slow. I do like the heated seats and how it remembers your seat settings.

- Beth S

Best multipurpose family vehicle!

Runs well, low maintenance, nice and roomy. We have car seats and still plenty of room to load up for vacations. We love it and even though it's older don't want to get rid of it unless it won't run.

- Amanda W

That the previous owners messed up the wiring.

I like that it is an SUV and that it is comfortable for 5 people to ride in with spacious room in the back for just about anything! I dislike the fact that there are blind spots when changing lanes.

- Tracy T

Love my Ford Expedition !

I love my Ford Expedition. It is dependable, looks great and has wonderful features. It suits my large family very well. We intend on purchasing a newer model of this vehicle in the future.


Its big, spacious, can pull trailers, fits in with having a large family.

the only problems I have had out of my expedition are the window motors and the alternator went out. but it performs like it's supposed to and I wouldn't trade it for anything else

- mary a

My vehicle is in excellent condition and has been very well taken care of. It also holds up to eight people.

The vehicle is a black Eddie Bauer edition. I love the comfort, smooth ride and overall feeling of safety being in an SUV. My only complaint is the paint peeling on the hatchback.

- Leanna R

It is very comfortable and versatile.

The Ford Expedition is an EL Limited. It comfortably seats 8 adults. T has a cavernous interior. The seats fold down flat for moving large objects. It has a very smooth ride.

- Brian A

Good on gas, pulls 27ft. CAMPER no problem. I Would purchase another expedition.

No major problems, just general maintenance items replaced,battery, alternator, tires only 1 ounce, Excellent Air Conditioning! ,Just told my heater coil has to be replaced!

- Nancy W

It's a very large family oriented vehicle. It's a luxury vehicle. Also very comfortable.

I really like that it's a large, comfortable family vehicle. It has great storage space. Only thing is gas which is obviously not the vehicles fault with prices so high.

- Tanya W

It does not get very good gas mileage in town or on the highway.

The roominess is what I like best. It has all the special add ons. Navigation could be better. Seems to have more repair needs than the chevys I've owned have

- Barbara M

It does not get a lot of gas mileage and is expensive to keep up.

I like the size and room in the vehicle. I do not like the it does not have bucket seating in the second row to make it easier to get in the third row seating.

- Michelle B

you can't beat the size and strength. i would not be afraid to take a hit in that vehicle, it just seems so powerful

I like my car a lot, have had it for many years. It's black which i love and big enough for my whole family. the only thing that i wish it had was a dvd player

- ann P

2008 Ford Expedition Limited

We have not had any problems with this vehicle. It has met our expectations. Plenty of room we keep the third row seat down and covered for more cargo room.

- Sandy G

It's a big car. You can spot it a mile away, it's not good on mileage that is why I want to get a smaller car

It's a huge vehicle. Very safe there's is enough room for everyone in the family the only downside is that it takes so much gas to run this tank everywhere

- Jessica E

The most important thing would be to watch the doors because sometimes they don't shut all the way.

I love the room it has. Due to the fact that it carries 8 passengers comfortably, it's a little bulky looking. I have no complaints on the vehicle at all.

- Dawn W

My expedition has been a very reliable car over the last 10 years.

Very reliable vehicle with 265,000 miles on it. All leather interior. I wish it had some of the newer features like reverse camera and Bluetooth.

- Tricia M

It is very dependable and has tons of space behind the third row.

It's size, we have 5 in our family. It's power is good for the hills we have in our neighborhood. Dislike It's gas mileage, regularly get 15mpg.

- Brandon W

It's very roomy and can accommodate at least 7 to 8 people.

I love how roomy my vehicle is. It's really done its job for us. My complaint would be that it's getting older and we may need to replace soon.

- Yvette H

That it is great for families that have children that participate in lots of activities.

I love the amount of room it overs for my family and ALL of their cargo I haul around with us. However, I think it is kind of a rough ride.

- Stephanie J

Repairs are expensive so be prepared to pay if something goes wrong.

While the size is enormous, it fits everything inside! I do love the entertainment system. Also, I loved the running boards that fold in.

- Erin S

It drives as smooth as any luxury vehicle.

My vehicle is a big, smooth driving, cargo and people hauling SUV. It is a versatile vehicle and is very dependable in inclement weather.

- Brian g

I like having 4x4. I have never been stuck in the snow or mud. I can pull out others who are stuck. I can pull trailers. My kids car seats fit well in there.

I like it because it fits my family's needs. We don't need to worry if the roads are plowed in the winter and our kids all fit in there.

- Kristin J

Great vehicle, would buy again!

My expedition is roomy, built great, runs great, love the entertainment system! It has close to 200,000 mi on it and is still kicking@

It's a luxury ride feeling very good while on the road. It feels very sturdy and strong. The kids love the room too.

It is very safe and has a good towing capacity.

I like it because it has a lot of optional equipment. It is very safe. I do not like it because of the gas mileage.

The vehicle handles very well, but it requires a lot of gas and frequent part changes or swaps every now And then.

It's awesome on the highway. It is reliable but it expensive to fill, especially when travelling.

It rides well. I like the size particularly for shopping and travelling. Only complaint is the cost to gas it up.

I like the size of the ford expedition. Ride is smooth and is enjoyable. Nice extras make it very comfortable.

The best combo of a trucks power and an SUVs comfort.

Very comfortable and powerful. When needed the third row is roomy. The only real drawback is the gas mileage.

Good car, but gas is expensive, the sensors of the car is easier to get damaged, but overall is a good car.

Dislike, it is hard to see out of and has blind spots. I love everything else. It can feel too heavy also.

It eats gas like crazy, but it will take you far. It does not have an AUX but you can buy the AUX tapes.
