I'll be the first to answer both of your questions.. :)
To be honest I love Fords. My FIL has a ford f150, I'm really small so I love to drive it I feel all big. Except when I was backing out of the drive way and our neighbor parked his corvette right behind me as I was backing out. Dumba$$ I drove right over it. Oops
2001 Ford Expedition. I love this vehicle, it has a little over 80,000 miles and has only given me very minor problems. Hopefully next year we will be upgrading to a newer one like a 2008. But there really isn't anything wrong with it.
