Had a 2020 platinum max that was pretty good for the most part.Curious, with all the issues you see on here about the transmission, shuddering, and cam and turbos I'm currious what the percentage that these issues are happening? I'm still on the side-line with my 3rd gen waiting for prices to level out or come down and had intended to buy a light-ly used 4th Gen. But the amount of issues I see is alarming. Or are we just seeing the reports of those with issues? How many of you out there have had no major issues with your 4th gen Expy?
It had a very noticeable rattle coming from the waste gate actuators. Took it in and Ford did nothing. It literally sounded like a heatshield on a Kia rattling around especially when we went through drive-thrus. For an 80,000 it is pretty embarrassing. The drivers side mirror had an annoying whistle which a member found a fix for on here.
Transmission was very jerky at times, brought this up to the dealer and of course nothing was done.
My wife just traded the 2020 platinum max in for a 2021 platinum max with 4 miles on it. She didn't like the 2022 coming out.
This 2021 has none of the rattle noises yet, no hard transmission shifting yet... however I did notice there is a whistle coming from the driver's side mirror being brand new just like her 2020.
Overall I would give the expedition a 7 / 10 as far as quality.
I am pretty pissed off I have to take her 2021 to the body shop because someone in Kentucky doesn't know how to align the doors properly and the gas fill cover looks like it is open because it is not installed properly
If my wife wasn't in love with the interior and family function of this vehicle I would have never bought another one. These are expensive vehicles and there are just some issues that I feel shouldn't be there for a brand new vehicle.
