Best car I have ever owned -2014 Ford Expedition

I purchased this vehicle in December 2014 with 66K miles on it and the 5.4L V-8.. I immediately serviced my Expedition with AMSOIL products. With the exception of normal maintenance items (Brakes, spark plugs etc.), this vehicle has been entirely trouble free. have had ZERO maintenance issues, check engine lights, etc. on this truck at all, and 5+ years later it now has 221K miles. Mostly road miles between my home and in Flagler County and my shop in Ocala, and my daughters home in Pensacola. Average gas mileage was between 18-20mpg without a tow load, 15-16mpg with a tow load. Not bad for a large SUV. I just recently purchased a 2014 Navigator with 70K miles and also the 5.4L. Other than being a stickler for routine maintenance, this vehicle has not been babied in any way. The dependability of this engine and drive train has been second to none in my experience, which is why I purchased this SUV as it is the last year of the 5.4L. I have classic cars and towed them with my Expedition. Great towing vehicle as well. Of course, it is all about how folks take care of their vehicles, but I have nothing but praise for the 2014 Expedition. So if you are looking for a large SUV I don't feel you can go wrong with a Ford Expedition.

Great for hauling the family or whatever

I’ve owned a 2008 Expedition for 10 yrs. Lots of space, good power, and in the snow it’s great. Mine is a later build engine with the newer spark plug design, no problems there. I would have bought another Expedition but a pickup truck fits me better nowadays, but now and then I miss the Expedition.

Engine is Junk! The most unreliable auto I own 5.4

Crap! Bought the car and the Engine Lock up within 60 days of owning the vehicle. Paid a lot of money for such a small return... It was a total lost to me and my family...

Best car yet

My 2008 expedition serves all my needs. I else will be investing in the 2022 platinum model when it comes about. I have 110,000 miles on the 2008 and you can’t even hear the engine. Got lucky. What a find.

Iv owned 4 expeditions

as any one knows with the 4.6 or 5.4 engines 1997 -2011 the Biggest issues are Coils and plugs. Iv owned 4 and the 2007 and 2008 gave me the most trouble. each had a 5.4 engine and the torque converter and transmission has burnt out on each of these. had to heli coil the plugs multiple times. Other than those 2 issues they were great Cars

Timing chain, power steering, electric windows, pa

This is the worst ford vehicle I have ever owned and the last! Had trouble with the power steering hose, the timing chain is going out, big bucks. The windows will not roll up in the winter time! The paint is flaking off the end gate! I will never buy another ford!!!! With all the problems going on with the engine and everything else and only having a little over one hundred thousand miles it’s ready for the junk yard!!!!if you own a 2008 expedition SELL IT!!!!

Loving the space!

The all around view and comfort of the Ford Expedition is awesome. It rides smooth and does not hesitate climbing hills. 4wd engages smoothly and the headlights are bright and clear.
