Editor's Overview

The 2018 Ford Expedition is all-new this year, and like the full-size Ford F-150, the new Expedition boasts extensive use of aluminum in its construction. The benefits of the aluminum are well known: lighter weight, better fuel economy and an arguably better driving experience. Yet Ford didn't stop there, adding the comfort, convenience, safety and style that the full-size SUV segment has needed.

New remodeled 2018 expedition.

It drives effortless, is solid built, and is very quiet inside. The leg room is better than any other vehicle in its class. The 3. 5 ecoboost motor is just incredible, power, torque, gas, mileage it's the best performance motor I have owned. Then to top it off is the 10 speed transmission, it pairs great with the 3. 5 ecoboost. Its smooth shifting and quick reacting.

She's fast and she's reliable

I haven't had any problems from my vehicle so far other than finding a good reliable place to have the oil changed. It is top performance and has proven reliable so far. I've had it for about three months and it's very comfortable and easy to drive. It has a rear camera and sunroof as well and the speakers are amazing.

The Ford expedition is super comfortable and roomy and reliable!

I love my vehicle. The only issue I have had is with the side view mirrors. They automatically go in and out when you start/stop transmission and sometimes they will stick and I have to press the button for them to stop. I love how roomy it is and the seats have air and heat which is super nice.

Power Train > Automatic Transmission Apr 3, 2018
Report Receipt Date:
Apr 3, 2018
NHTSA Campaign:
18V213000
Summary:
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain 2017-2018 Ford F-150 and 2018 Ford Expedition and Mustang and Lincoln Navigator vehicles equipped with 10-speed automatic transmissions. A roll pin may not have been installed in the transmission, potentially causing a loss of the "Park" function.
Consequence:
Despite the transmission shift lever being placed in 'Park' and the instrument panel display indicating 'Park,' the vehicle may roll away after it has been exited if the parking brake has not been applied, increasing the risk of injury or a crash.
Remedy:
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the transmission to make sure it has the roll pin, installing one if it is missing, free of charge. The recall began on April 13, 2018. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 18S09.
Fuel System, Gasoline > Delivery > Fuel Pump Jun 11, 2018
Report Receipt Date:
Jun 11, 2018
NHTSA Campaign:
18V392000
Summary:
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain 2018 Ford Expedition, F-150, and Lincoln Navigator vehicles equipped with 3.5L GTDI V6 engines. These vehicles have high pressure fuel pump assemblies with welds that can fracture, which may cause an oil or fuel leak.
Consequence:
A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may increase the risk of a fire.
Remedy:
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the high pressure fuel pump and associated components, free of charge. The recall began July 17, 2018. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 18S17.
Seats > Mid/rear Assembly Nov 30, 2017
Report Receipt Date:
Nov 30, 2017
NHTSA Campaign:
17V775000
Summary:
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain 2018 Expedition vehicles. The second row outboard seats may have excessive forward adjustment capability and/or may have an improperly installed bolt that secures the seat back to the seat base. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 202a, "Head Restraints", number 207, "Seating Systems", and number 210, "Seat Belt Anchorage System."
Consequence:
If the seat back is not adequately secured, and/or the seat occupant is improperly positioned, there can be an increased risk of injury in a crash.
Remedy:
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the second row outboard seats for proper seat adjustment travel, replacing the seat frame assembly if necessary. Dealers will also inspect the bolts attaching the seat back to the seat base for the proper installation, correcting it as necessary. These repairs will be made free of charge. The recall began on January 10, 2018. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 17C20.
Visibility > Power Window Devices And Controls Jan 15, 2018
Report Receipt Date:
Jan 15, 2018
NHTSA Campaign:
18V058000
Summary:
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain 2018 Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator vehicles. The second row window control modules may intermittently stop the movement of the power window. If something, such as a finger, is pinched by the window glass, the stopped window control module may prevent the window from automatically reversing. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 118, "Power-Operated Window Systems."
Consequence:
If the window does not automatically reverse when an obstruction is found, it can increase the risk of injury.
Remedy:
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the second row window electronic control modules, and replace them as necessary based on their build date codes, free of charge. The recall began on February 16, 2018. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 18C01.
Power Train > Automatic Transmission Apr 3, 2018
Report Receipt Date:
Apr 3, 2018
NHTSA Campaign:
18V214000
Summary:
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain 2018 F-650 and F-750 vehicles equipped with 6-speed automatic transmissions and 2018 Ford F-150 and Expedition vehicles equipped with 10-speed automatic transmissions (excluding Expedition vehicles with a Rotary Gear Shift Dial on the console). The gear shift cable clip may not be properly seated, allowing the transmission to be in a different gear than indicated by the gear shift lever position.
Consequence:
If the gear shift cable clip becomes unseated or dislodged, the gear shift lever position may indicate that the transmission is in 'Park' when it may be in a different gear. Additionally, despite selecting 'Park', if the parking brake is not applied before the vehicle is exited, the vehicle may roll. Either scenario increases the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the shift cable locking clip and properly seat it, if necessary, free of charge. The recall began on April 13, 2018. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for the recall is 18S10.
Seats > Mid/rear Assembly Nov 13, 2018
Report Receipt Date:
Nov 13, 2018
NHTSA Campaign:
18V805000
Summary:
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain 2018 Lincoln Navigator, and Ford Expedition vehicles. The second row center seat track assemblies may be missing one or both of the J-Channel reinforcement brackets, possibly allowing the seat to move in the event of a crash.
Consequence:
In the event of a crash, a seat that moves may not properly restrain the seat occupant, increasing their risk of injury.
Remedy:
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the second row center seat for any missing J-channel reinforcement brackets, replacing the center seat frame assembly as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 17, 2018. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 18S37
