2000 Ford Expedition from North America
Don't buy one
6 of my coils had gone bad.
One of my spark plugs was spat out.
Twice my sensor lights went on.
Just recently I had a cracked manifold, and two weeks later my heater core started smoking inside the car, then a week after that, my emergency brake didn't work. I'm not a happy person at this point.
I've noticed that Ford makes their cars out plastic. I'm done; looking to buy a Nissan Murano.
Thought I was buying a vehicle that would be safe for my family, and be roomy enough for others, and would last me a few years without any major problems, but I was wrong.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Are you kidding me? A 6 year old vehicle has a couple of minor problems (coils, heater core, parking brake) and spits out a plug, which is a very well known issue in the 5.4L engine and only costs $40 to fix... And you are saying it's not reliable and giving it a bad review LOL. These are practically maintenance items; it's not like the transmission went or the engine threw a rod.
I own one of these trucks and I admit the 5.4L had a couple of design flaws. All of these problems you mention add up to under $1000, which is very reasonable for a 6 year old vehicle. You cannot expect vehicles to run years and years without repairs; they are machines, and machines break.

You are correct sir.
Maintenance is required on any and every vehicle, especially if you buy used.
The second you buy a used car, change the oil and the spark plugs, flush the tranny and flush the radiator... should last a while if done so.
