2008 Ford Expedition
There are 4 user reviews for the Limited 4X2 trim shown below
- I like larger vehicles. This is my second Expedition. Had 2003 Navigator and two Town Cars.
- The small backup camera image is in the rearview mirror. Better to have been on the GPS screen.
My previous Expedition was an Eddie Bauer 4x2. The upgrades in the 2008 version make it superior to even the 2003 Navigator I owned. I like not having an ashtray, although I don't understand why there is still a cigarette lighter! The seats are comfortable; the spaciousness is outstanding; ease of entry and exit are very good; the automatic tailgate and third-row seats are outstanding features; and the body style and trim are first-class. I am not as impressed with Sirius radio (free for six months) as I am with XM, which we have in our other vehicles. Engine power, steering, and ease of parking are strong features. The controls on the audio system could be easier to see and use. The fold-down side mirrors are a plus, especially given the...read morehide

- Ride is quiet and smooth. Legroom and cargo space. Power everything.
- Brakes a bit soft sometimes.
Ford outdid the competition with this vehicle. This blows away the GM products in legroom, interior asthetics, and cargo room/versatility. The Nissan Armada LE has comparable technology features for the same price, but lags way behind in ride quality and interior materials used. The Toyota Seqoia gives the Expedition a run for its money, but costs a few grand more out the dealership door for the same options and looks a bit bloated to me. Purchased a Limtied Expedition with all options except power running boards. The Nav is easy to use and love the voice activation and ability to control stereo, nav, dvd, etc. all in one central area. Was skeptical paying the $2k extra, but well worth it. The ride is amazingly quiet and smooth and the truck handles very well for something that is 6k lbs. The cargo room and versatility is better than any SUV on the market today and so is the leg room, especially in the 3rd row (just compare 3rd row leg room specs to any other SUV). The quality of the interior materials is above average compared to the competition. I drove the Navigator and considered buying one, but could not get past the Navigator grill, but was pleased that I could purchase a fully loaded Expedition Limited that handled and rode the exact same for the out the door price of an entry level Navigator. As with any large SUV don't expect to run laps around any one or get 30 mpg on the highway, but acceleration is better than expected and gas mileage seems to be around 15 in town and 18 or so on the highway, so it could be worse. I would highly recommend this vehicle to anyone who needs to use a 3rd row on a regular basis and still have the flexibility of having a folding 3rd row for additional cargo when needed, so that it is not necessary to but a Suburban or EL for that matter. If you are in the market for a full size SUV this is a must drive vehicle to compare to the competition....read morehide

- Good fuel economy and this comfort... This SUV is great!
- I can't think of any cons! NOTHING
I trade in GMC Envoy for Expedition. I loved my Envoy but when I saw redesigned Expedition few months ago I knew this is my next car!
This car is awesome. The ride is so smooth and the fuel economy is great! You will be surprised - almost 15 miles per gallon (in the city)!
Inside - bueatiful leather seats (heated & cooled), power folding 3rd row seats, backup sensors... This SUV has everything I was looking for. I would strongly recommend this vehicle. If you are not sure - just go to the dealer and take for a short ride. You won't be dissapointed!...read morehide

- Great suspension, very comfortable seats, easy to read/use controls
- Could use a little more HP & torque. Where's the powerstroke?
I just bought a 2007 4x2 Limited. You must get the convience package! Powerlift gate and powerfold rear seat are GREAT! 20" wheel upgrade really sets the truck off. Dash, instruments, & controls very easy to use and read, especially at night. Ride is fantastic and brakes are decent. Sound insulation is good and the stereo is pretty darn good for stock (get the 6 disk - sirius - subwoofer upgrade). Interior carpet looks and feels cheap though!
Overall, this truck for the money DESTROYS the Tahoe, Armada and Yukon. Would have really liked to seen a diesel option though. In the $43,000 range, nobody beats the 2007 Expedition Limited!...read morehide
