This car, nay, truck, is simply amazing. It was primarily a family driver until about four months ago when my son started to drive it around, but now he has his OWN Expedition Eddie Bauer 4WD, same year. The interior is a little flat and, at least in both of our vehicles cases, the little gears and levers everywhere start to break at average wear and tear, but considering, they are 10 year olds.
The leather holds up nicely, but you can tell it does get a little worn down with heavy use. The only real complaint is that the access to the third row is pretty cumbersome and clumsy, but it gets done. The third row is pretty clunky to fold as well, but these little pet peeves can be overlooked.
My son has the advantage of 4WD and the Mach audio system, which according to him sounds amazing with the deep bass sometimes associated with his music, and our PREMIUM sound system is pretty good too, and I think that's the stock for XLT models but I'm not positive.
Reliability wise, these things are tanks. As long as we keep up on things like oil and tires and brakes, the engine could probably easily hit 200k or maybe even 300k, from the condition they are in now. (Both are at around 104-109k) The gas mileage, considering, is not THAT bad, and it helps with the K&N filters, leaving us at about 19mpg hwy and 15 city... not bad for a 5.4L V8 hauling a family of six, some luggage, and a trailer with some toys on it.
Ultimately, I would suggest this truck to ANYONE with:
A family of 4+ that needs towing capabilities
Need for cavernous space
Hunger for Reliable, American trucks!
The reliability is almost incomparable with not only Chevy/GMC, but Sequoias as well.
