Pros: the creature comforts
Cons: fuel mileage ( 19 hwy)
Advice: get the anti skid device ( requires 4 WD)I LOVE this vehicle the anti skid feature is excellent!
Pros: Rear Airconditioning, 4 doors
Cons: Rough ride over bumpy roads
Advice: Purchase it you won't be sorry, but be sure you can afford the fuelI test drove several Expeditions and Chevy Blazers. Although, the Blazer was quicker on exceleration and cheaper on fuel, the Expedition is a very safe vehicle. I know several people involed in major accidents and the only reason they are alive is because of the safety of the Expedition. It is worth paying for the extra fuel to be safe and for the safety of your family.

Pros: Power third row seats, spaciousness, running boards, overall capability, ALL seatbelts have shoulder belts
Cons: Cheap pinstriping, gas mileage, horrible visibility out the back when dvd player is down (add after market, in the headrest type)
Advice: It's a GREAT family car. Just do your commuting with one that uses less fuel, and take it easy on the gas pedal.I love the height, engine power, power third row seats, heated/cooled front seats, overall cavernous feel inside even loaded with tons of stuff. I like two different options for opening up the back of the car (ie. whole hatch or just the uppper window part). I had to drive on a decent amount of snow a couple of months back. It had no problems whatsoever getting right off the line while set in 4AWD mode. This is a great family car. This version is pretty luxurious for a Ford product, too. We only have 3000 miles on ours so far, so I can't say much about longevity at this point. Brake dust is pretty bad, but I just appreciate the braking ability compared to the Seqouia I test drove before purchasing this car.
Pros: third row seating room and how it goes flat.
Cons: tire noise at lower speeds
Advice: make sure you have the remain warranty and/or the blue oval certificationBased on ~1400mi. round trip, we avg. 17.89mi/gal and the vehicle ran fine. We did have some minor difficulties. The gauge cluster went out (speed, tach, temp, press, fuel, batt)and the weather stripping around the front windshield came off. Cruise control and everything else was working.
Pros: 3rd row folding seat at a touch of a button
Cons: engine noise on acceleration
Advice: it's very expensive -- make sure you love itWe test drove the Chevrolet Tahoe, Toyota Sequoia and Ford F-150. The Chevrolet Tahoe was by far the quietest and best driving car. The 3rd row seat in the Tahoe didn't have any well for your legs so your knees were up too high -- a very uncomfortable traveling position. If the Tahoe had a roomier 3rd row seat that folded into the floor at a press of a button, we would have bought it. The Sequoia's 3rd row seat was okay but the 2nd and 3rd row seats required that you use strapping of some sort to keep the seats from falling back after you raised them up. The Eddie Bauer was the roomiest and most comfortable. It has the most bells and whistles and is very quiet except upon acceleration. My husband fell in love with it.
