I am in an unfortunate situation of needing more child car seat space than the vehicles I can comfortably afford new-ish can provide (and minivan's are also not capable of holding the young crowd I haveand am in negotiations on an 07 Expedition EL Eddie Bauer 2WD rig with 90k on it. It's a nice truck, and up here in my area, priced to move at 3k under blue book... But still at $18k. In the Seattle area the EL's are hard to find and I've yet to see an upgraded trim package so we kind of (really) want it but we haven't ever purchased a vehicle with such high mileage before and need this to be a long term vehicle (at least longer than the loan!)
Does anyone have a ballpark idea how long this baby might last me? We are purchasing the best ESP we can get on it which unfortunately won't cover the luxury auto features or the air ride suspension - which is a big concern for my hubby, and a handful of other very expensive sounding items. We like the extra room the EL provides (and my dog would really enjoy going for rides again) so would prefer this one but know we can find a lower miles regular expedition for the same price if we're making a poor move here.
Appreciate any thoughts you all can give from experience!
I just bought an 07 Navigator L with 91k on the clock. it had service records for the most part. I am totally confident that it will be good for another 50k without a problem. I did change plugs and coils simply for peace of mind, but otherwise it runs amazing. I have seen many posts of people running them anywhere between 180 and 300K. I am sure the 300K is an exception rather than the rule, but have a certified mechanic check it over before you buy it.
