One of the most reliable cars I own.

by from San Francisco, CA on August 4, 2017

This car is very reliable and the Interior has great space and leg room, however, the quality is terrible and there are no modern features.

I don't think I could have seen life without it, strong, reliable,dependable and a jack of all occasions. Has seen down and dirty, been used as football team mom's taxi, daily high travel work vehicle, and it's also seen very classy and polished events.

I've put over 250,000 miles on my vehicle with little to no trouble outside of the basic maintenance and preventative maintenance you experience while owning a vehicle. Ive owned over 18 cars in my lifetime and this one has proven to be the most reliable and versatile. Great towing capacity, room for 7 adults comfortably and the power to get you places.

One of the best vehicles I have owned.

by from Truckee on April 12, 2017

Owned for 20 years, trouble free. The expedition was a great SUV for everything. Great in heavy snow when using 4 Wheel low.

Had this truck for so long have put 270k miles on her. Haven't used her for over 3 years as I don't have children to haul anymore. But every so often would move her and she would start cough then purr. Don't know why I still keep this monster but she has been the most reliable truck or vehicle for that matter I have had.

My parents picked up our 97 Expedition in 1998. She was driven by a ford dealer owner for a one year lease, and we have had her ever since. I am currently 18 years old and ready to leave for college, and our expedition has been there every step of the way. My parents are business owners that needed a reliable car for both the business and our family. Over the years, we have made 9 round trips to our timeshare in Vermont, and have not had a problem even in our most recent trip where she had over 235,000 on her. She now currently has about 265,000 on her, and my parents plan to get a new vehicle with better fuel economy. Since i got my license in 2013, I have been the primary driver f this car, and could not giver her higher praise. If you are looking for a truck that will get you anywhere, no matter the distance or weather condition, i highly recommend this vehicle to anyone. It will be hard to let this car go if we decide to sell her. The only negative is the fuel economy. The Cars.com statement that she gets over 20 on the freeway is misleading. We average around 13, usually about 15 on the freeway. Now, when we first got her, my parents claim she got upper teens, so the engine may be worn down. However, based on other Expedition owners reviews, the engine should give you no troubles even well over 300,000 miles. Will miss this car greatly if we decide to sell. Highly recommend this vehicle to anyone. The engine is a beast, and most owners tend to take well care of these vehicles. Even in Michigan weather, our car has accumulated little rust. I hope anyone reading this truly understands how much I love this car, and know that you will too.
