Cool Overspeed Chime?!

Has anyone Read the Owners manual for the 2007 Expy.?
It's intersting and everything..

BUT It Stated that You cant go over 75 MPH! without overspeed warning chime from sounding?! That's Crazy! Being that 90 is a crawl on Atlanta highways
Right next to where it Describes the overspeed chime It States (if Equippted)


I just though i would mention it to everyone because i need a few opinions on this topic...As i dont really know what to think..

If anyone wants to see for them- self its in the beginning of the manual by the Instrument cluster information..

Where did you find the '07 owners manual?

I've been on "myford.com" and tried to enter the VIN for my '07 and it will not accept it yet.

Here is the Link.. It should bring you right to the 2007 expy manual but u need to have abdobe Reader thing to read the file...

www.fleet.ford.com

Then Mouse over the maintenance tab And you will find "owners manuals"
Then just pick 2007 Ford Expy.

Maybe they are talking about an "exported model". I know for a fact that in Saudi-Arabia (Sp?) they require an overspeed warning starting at 75MPH.

Could be.. BUT they dont mention such thing about an overspeed chime in any other 2007 ford vehicles.. (Five hundred,Fusion,Ranger,F-150, Ect)

I think maybe cause its just so damn BIG!.. That it would be unsafe to take it up and over 75??

If my step mothers F-250 4x4 crewcab diesel is electronicaly limited to 95mph, then im sure the new expy, is stable enough at 75+. Then again do you REALLY want something that big goin that fast? An Emergency stop would be impossible.

the 07 expedition is plenty safe to drive over 75. I drive 80-85 regularly if there is not traffic. The auto chime from my experience is not available on any fords. Someone correct me if I am wrong, but I am pretty sure the 07 expediton does not have it.

My wifes Saab does have the auto chime when you drive too fast, the kicker is you can set the auto chime at whatever speed you want to. When we first got her car, we had it set at 75, but it gets very annoying so we jumped it to 105 and now we rarely get the auto chime, only get it when the wife isnt around and I get to test out the car. Her car at high speeds angles the rear tires (just enough) when switching lanes or turning to improve maneveurability. I can't figure out why our domestic auto companies cannont add these type of features. In her saab you can be driving 100 and it feels as if you are going 40.

The 75 MPH over speed warning chime should only be enabled on SSV Fleet Expeditions and not the ones most of us buy; the dealer should be able to enable or disable it by connecting their computer to it.
