Airplane On Wheels by Junky in Jersey on 05/02/2005. Trim: 2005 Ford Expedition XLT 4WD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Airplane On Wheels! Engine is magnificent. Seats are the most comfortable in all seating positions; yes, including the third row. Visibility is great, with large side mirrors and thoughtful simple boxy body style. Took our new Expedition on a 2,000-mile road trip and never had a slight problem cruising at 85-mph for at least 6 hours straight everyday. Engine never complained nor whined even with the A/C on full blast. Climbed through mountain passes with ease. Passenger compartment is simple yet supportive. Leg room, head room are ample in all three rows. Storage galore, especially with the huge center console. Independent rear suspension is heaven for rear passengers.
Cons: Gas mileage, of course. Feeding 5.7-liter V8 ain't cheap these days, so don't expect to use this as a daily driver. But for the family's long-hauler, this is the best truck around. Cargo space is limited with the third-row up. You will have to sacrifice at least one seat if you plan to bring in extra luggages for a trip. Can't fit in most commercial city garages because of its height. But for a full-sized SUV, this is comparably smaller and easier to handle than a Chevy/GMC or Toyota Sequoia, so no real complaints here.
Overall review: The nearest thing to ever flying First Class on the road. The best big car for the driver AND passengers. I will be keeping mine for a long, long, long time.
