Expedition is reliable and fun to drive.

In the past 6 years that I have owned this vehicle I haven't had any major issues. One issue I have had regularly is with the controls on the steering wheel controlling the radio and volume. It often does the opposite like when I try to turn the volume down, it goes up. Also, sync often gives me problems where it does not do what its supposed to. The car drives very well and has a smooth ride. Service has been very reliable. The seats are somewhat comfortable. One thing I do not care for is how light the interior is. It is very difficult to keep clean, so I have added seat covers and my own car mats. The ones that came with the vehicle were very cheap. I have really enjoyed driving the expedition and would definitely consider buying another one when the time comes.

2012 Expedition - use that warranty!

I bought it used about six months ago at around 90k miles. After a long road trip from Texas to California and back, I had to replace the left valve gasket cover, which was stuck open. As a result, fuel fouled all of my spark plugs, so all of the plugs and boots had to be replaced. The VVT solenoid also had to be replaced. Make sure that you get major maintenance done before the warranty runs out. The car is roomy and comfortable for my family of 6...we just had to put some big money into repairs unexpectedly.

I find the Expedition to be very study and well made in America.

I love my Expedition. It was bought hastily as my previous vehicle, a Toyota 4Runner was critically damaged. The Expedition is bigger, and was harder for me to park at first, but I am used to it now and find it to be the perfect truck for our many excursions and road trips. There is ample room for the family, including pets and no one is cramped on the longer adventures. I have no complaints, it's a well made, dependable, study vehicle. I highly recommend it to those needed a larger SUV.
