Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"Seats are best in class for comfort. Much better than the 2015 Tahoe we previously had. The seat ventilation is also outstanding. Overall interior comfort is excellent. Wind and road noise is also excellent. Normal conversations at 80-85 mph is no different than at 40 mph."

Anonymous, TX (2018 Ford Expedition)

"Seats are very comfortable and the ventilated feature works great. The cabin is extremely quiet and the ride is good."

Anonymous, TN (2018 Ford Expedition)

"The seats are very comfortable. We test drove several other vehicles (Honda Odyssey, Toyota Sienna, Toyota Sequoia), and the Expedition was by far the most comfortable."

Anonymous, MI (2018 Ford Expedition)

"Extremely quiet, very supportive comfortable seats."

R V., SC (2018 Ford Expedition)

"Build to haul 8 people and cavernous interior. Ride great with 8 on board and still room for cargo. My third Expedition Max"

James H., NM (2018 Ford Expedition)

"Large, easy to adjust....comfortable"

Anonymous, PA (2018 Ford Expedition)

"The seats are incredibly comfortable, with many adjustments. Have the cooling as well which works great. The car is very quiet - they seem to have found the balance between blocking outside road noise while still hearing emergency vehicles. Ride - love, love, love it. We have the CCD package - not sure if that makes the difference, but it is very smooth. Major bumps you certainly feel, but minor stuff not much."

Laura R., OH (2018 Ford Expedition)

"The seats are extremely comfortable, the overall interior is roomy in all three rows of seats for adults. The adjustable suspension works well, and for a large SUV, the interior is super quiet, even at highway speeds"

Michael C., MA (2018 Ford Expedition)

"Overall I love my new 2018 Expedition. My previous vehicle was a 2007 Audi Q7 (original owner) I LOVED my Q7 and held onto it for so long because I just could not find a vehicle that had as good of a fit and comfortable drive (did not like the new Audi's) so I went with a larger vehicle. I do not regret the Expedition however for my size 5'1 and 115 lbs I need the steering wheel to be able to adjust lower, seat to have more of a tilt range so that my feet and knees are comfortable and not cutting off circulation (it felt like a good fit at the dealership) however upon driving it everyday I realized it did not have enough positioning options for shorter people, even with the pedal adjustment which does not help the depth/height of the seat cutting into back of my knees. The steering wheel is very uncomfortable especially on long trips, there is not enough range of adjustments for the SW being lowered or seat tilt to give me a comfortable driving position. The hand placement on steering wheel is not comfortable and not enough room for my hands to be placed comfortably and hold onto so my arms seem to get tired quicker on long trips. Steering wheel should be lower than shoulders and arms relaxed unfortunately without a wide range of adjustments steering wheel is not lower than my shoulders and my arms are not relaxed. Recommended hand placement is no longer 10/2, it is now 9/3 and for me on my Expedition it is difficult to drive comfortably and safely at 9/3 the way the steering wheel is made. Though I like the positioning of 10/2 it is really not comfortable in my Expedition. When I test drove the Expedition it was the base model and the seat cushions were comfortable however in the Limited the seats are a little harder (maybe its from the air blower), it's not a big issue, but was noticed. When it rains it sounds like I'm back in our old house with a tin roof (my Audi did not have the rain noise). Also, when the rear AC is on it is loud so its a little bothersome when you have others in the vehicle. I have the Captains Chairs in the back and we love them but for a smaller person it takes some oomph (muscles) to place them back in the seating position once lowered, if I was taller it might not be as much of a issue, the kids really struggle with it. I love my Expedition and will most likely get another one when the time comes,, fingers crossed they make some adjustments. One more thing, I wish I would've gotten the 360 camera because when I get close to something for example pulling into the garage even with the sensors beeping I'm not able to tell how much clearance I actually have since it is such a large vehicle, live and learn."

Lisa A., TX (2018 Ford Expedition)

"The most comfortable vehicle I have ever owned"
