Vibration, Sometimes Severe, At Approximately 50 Mph And Faster. ford Dealer Aware Of The Problem, But Say They Cannot Repair. Dealer Has Suggested That Tires And Shocks Be Replaced, Which I Have Done But To No Avail. Had Front End Aligned, Left Camber Shim Installed, Radius Arm Bushings Replaced, Tires Balanced And Re-balanced, Front Right Tire Replaced But The Problem Still Persists. Vibration Becomes Severe At Higher Speeds. Not Safe. I Have Contacted The ford Motor Company Customer Service Rep., But They Tell Me To See The Dealer! Getting The Run-around. Vehicle Is Only 5 Years Old With Only 68000 Highway Miles. This Should Not Happen! I Have Spent Approximately $1,000 To Repair The Problem Without Success. Please Help Me! I Am Concerned That, With All Of The Vibration, Something Will Loosen While I’m Driving With My Wife And Children Causing An Accident. I Feel This Is A Design Flaw As I Have Spoken With Several Other explorer Owners Who Have The Same Problem. I Do Not Drive The Vehicle Hard. I Take Excellent Care Of The Vehicle And, For The Most Part, It Has Been A Good Vehicle Except For The Incessant Vibration. I Feel That It Is The Responsibility Of ford To Pay The Price Of Repair (or Replacement) Before Someone Gets Hurt Or Killed From This Obvious Design Flaw. Anything You Can Do Will Be Very Much Appreciated. Thank You, Greg Halpern.

The Vehicle Has A Severe Vibration/shaking Problem With The Front Suspension. I Have Had It Checked With No Problems According To My Local Dealer In Blackfoot, Id. The Tires Are Brand New And They Are Balanced Properly. ford Has Refused To Fix This Problem Since The Warranty Has Expired. I Wrote Them A Letter Explaining That It Is A Safety Issue And Not A Warranty Issue But They Blew It Off As An Expired Warranty Issue. ford Has Admitted To The Defect Through Publishing Of A Tsb # 96-4-15. It Resolves A Vibration/shaking Problem With My Model At Various Speeds Of Which My Problem Exists At 60-75 Mph. It Violently Shakes The Front End To Make It Difficult To Brake Heavily And Maintain Control On All Road Surfaces. The Fix Is A Newly Redesigned Left And Right Engine Mount And An Addition Of A Lateral Shock Absorber Installed In The Rear Of The Truck. I Wanted Them To Fix It As A Safety Recall But They Refused. I’m Currently Taking Other Actions Such As Reporting This Problem Through Your Site. Evidently, ford Thinks They Can Get Away With It.

The Problem First Displayed Itself At 8000 Miles, I Contacted The Dealer And Was Told To Bring It In. On 7/14/93 They Did A Front End Alignment. When I Picked It Up I Questioned The Unusual Tire Wear On The Front, They Told Me There Was Nothing They Could Do, About This. This Condition Persisted And I Again Contacted The Dealer And Was Told To Bring It In On 10/19/193. They Performed Another Front End Alignment And Rotated The Tires Due To The Exterme Wear. The Problem Continued I Again Called The Dealer And Was Advised To Bring It In On 2/11/94 At Which Time Another Realignment Was Performed And A Part Replaced. The Problem Only Became Worse I Again Contacted The Dealer And Was Stalled Repeatedly. In Desperation I Contacted The ford Rep In Atlanta (matt Darnell) And Requested His Assistance. Again I Was Stalled Almost Ignored, The Problem Became So Bad While Waiting For Mr. Darnell That I Was Forced To Take It To Firestone Who Performed Another Front End Alignment And Rebalanced The Tires. The Tires Were Worn So Badly By This Time , The Damage Had Been Done. There Were Other Repairs Made To This Vehicle By Claxton Lawrence ford Who At One Point Refused To Repair It Because We Did Not Purchase It There. At This Point We Had To Contact ford Directly And Threaten Legal Action In Order To Effect Repairs. At This Time The explorer Was New On The Market And Information That Is Now Widely Available Was Not Available To Us Or Others. It Is My Belief That ford Motor Company Knowingly Knew They Had Problems And Now That I Reflect Back On It Mr. Darnell Alluded To Me In One Conversation To That Effect, But At The Time I Did Not Put It Together. I Too Was Involved In A Roll Over With My explorer And It Was Totally Destroyed Along With My Life And Career. Had ford Been More Forthcoming With Information That They Had Things May Have Been Different For Myself And Many Others. I Have Contacted An Attorney Who Told Me To Much Time Had Passed For Me To Take My Case To Court. *ak
