    Hello everyone,

    I'm Wally and I recently purchased a 2018 Expedition MAX Limited with 56,000 miles on it with Magnetic Metallic exterior and Medium Stone interior. I live in San Diego California and I'm looking forward to learning tips'n'tricks from you and sharing my experiences as well. I'm a pretty handy guy in the garage and with cars in general and love DIY repairs, especially if there is good video from YouTube. I Prefer Ford over GM and others when it comes to Trucks and Large SUV's. My daily driver is a Ford C-max Energi plug-in hybrid and my toy is a 1980 Shay Model A (1929 Ford Model A replica).

    My Pros:
    • MAX is perfect for my family with 3 kids
    • light colored interior is way more practical and keeps interior cooler
      • I prefer it over black
    • Limited trim looks nicer than XLT, I wish it had LED headlight trim though like on the Platinum
      • If I had one wish....but too expensive to do the lighting upgrade
    • Panorama roof is so cool and limo tint of the roof glass is mandatory, especially in California
    • cooled front seats
    • push-botton start
    My Cons:
    • Side mirrors have a glitch when using memory seats
      • They auto adjust all way up and start clicking repeatedly
    • Rear trunk hatch opens randomly when opening and closing passenger doors
      • So far only happens when car is in park
      • Happens both when the car is on or off
    • Occasionally see a warning for Steering Assist Fault Service Required
      • Ford Dealer wants $149 to reprogram
      • Independent Ford Specialist wants $100-$1500, weird
    • Cold starts, engine oil pump or valves or whatever, makes a tapping noise for the first couple seconds until the engine circulates the oil. Same noise before and after oil change.
    • Transmission occasionally downshifts with a bump and noticed it much more after an oil change at the Ford dealer.
      • Might need transmission and rear diff service????
    I hope you all are safe and healthy with the virus going around.
