#330 of 379 Air Suspension?
Feb 19, 2007 (11:46 am)
Is this option worth getting if I don't tow anything? Is this option basically for heavy towing? Also, does anyone know if adding the Air Suspension eliminates anything from the regular suspention or does it just add to it? Is the ride comfort the same with or without the air suspension? Thanks in advance for your input.
#331 of 379 2007 Expedition Transmission Shifter

I test drove a 2007 expedition limited. Overall it was nice but has anyone noticed how cheap the plastic handle is on the
transmission shifter. Not just that it is bad fake wood but that the 2 pieces actually move relative to the center
part of the handle. I can't believe Ford would do this on
on a part of the vehicle that drivers interact every day with.

well my dads company is a big buyer of ford trucks for thier line of work so the x-plan gives discounts to people who work in ford vehicles etc. but i got a policy number from the fleet guy who buys the ford trucks for my dads work and it lets you buy it at about 500 dollars over invoice but you add in all the other discounts welp you get a good deal
#336 of 379 Fake Chrome Wheels

I was looking at the new Expedition and noticed that the wheels on the Limited were what Ford calls "Chrome CLAD Aluminum Wheels". These are nothing more than PLASTIC WHEEL COVERS. When you upgrade the 18" wheels to 20" it does not cost more but they want $995 extra for the tires.
At least when you purchase the Navigator you can upgrade the wheels and get real Chrome Aluminum Wheels and not plastic covers.
#337 of 379 Purchase Price in May 07
May 17, 2007 (1:30 am)
I live in the Northern VA area and I just purchased a 2007 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer. The MSRP on it was $48,510 and the invoice price was $43,875. The dealer offered $1000 under invoice plus the $2000 or 2500 rebates. This brings the price to $40,875 for a lease or $40,375 to buy. I went with the lease option myself. This was all with no haggling either. I contacted the dealer through their internet sales department and this is the initial no haggle price they offered. This price actually beat the "big sale price" the dealer offered if you walked in off the street by $1500.
#338 of 379 Cash Back

What kind of rebates are they offering in CA on Expeditions? I got a price of $40, 235 EB with load leveling, power tailgate, power convenience, heavy duty towing, satellite radio. I asked the dealer about cash back rebates and he was vague. Is 2-3K cash back unusual in this market?

I've been recently looking for a 2005-2007 used Expedition and have noticed two things: 1. Used Expeditions are only available from dealers (at least in my area); and 2. given the drop in demand, prices are not as low as I expected.
The fact that Expeditions are only available from dealers is not entirely unexpected since most Expedition owners looking to sell couldn't sell to other private parties (no demand) and therefore traded in their Expedition to a dealer for a smaller vehicle. And as noted in this forum, the trade in value was typically under the published trade in value (again, no demand).
What has surprised me, however, is that this significant drop in demand has not led to an equally expected significant drop in the price dealers are asking for used Expeditions.
Since dealers own all of the new and used Expeditions, they are in a position to set the asking price and artificially hold up the prices of used Expeditions. Are they? Or is there some other explaination?
