A Follow Up On A Co Problem, That Happened On 7/7/15. Dealer Took The explorer In On The Co Issue Along With ford Knowing Of It.

I Was Driving Yesterday And A Message Popped Up “terrain Management System Fault” And Then All Of A Sudden, A Check Brakes Message Showed, Leaving The Brake Indicator, Abs Message Saying It Is Off And An “awd Off” Message. This Happened Repeatedly Even After Turning The Car Off For Hours And Restarting. Pictures Were Taken Of The Messages And It Was Dropped At The Service Department Of The Local ford Dealership. They Originally Thought It Was A Bad Abs Sensor, But Upon Further Investigation, Something Is Really Wrong In The Computer And Some Other Modules, They Did Not Even Give Us A Time Frame For Completion. This Is Next Years Model And We Have Only Owned It For 1 Month, Not A Good Sign. Not Sure If Other People Are Having This Issue, But They Might Soon. The Dealership Would Also Not Say If It Was/is Dangerous To Drive With All Of The Errors Popping Up.

When I Purchased The 2015 explorer I Drove It Off The Lot And Up A Hill To Go Home. As Soon As We Started Up The Hill The Car Filled With An Acrid, Smoky Smell. The Kids And I Pulled Over Because We Thought There Was Something Wrong. My Husband Said It Was Just “breaking The Car In” Smell. Please Note I Have Had New Cars Before And Never Smelled Something This Bad. So My Husband Drove It Home While The Kids And I Took The Truck. Since That Time The Acrid, Smoky Smell Happens Every Time The Car Is Cold And Then I Go Up A Hill. The Engine Is Accelerating And Working Hard. I Will Have To Pay More Attention To The Rpms At The Time. At The Top Of The Hill I Smell The “smoke Smell.” This Happens Daily On A Hill I Travel To Go To Work. I Thought That Over Time The Smell Would Go Away. Now I Have 10,000 Miles On The Car And It Is 8 Months Later And The Smell Is Still There. Took It To The Dealership Where I Bought It At The 2,000 Mile Mark And They Claimed They Did Not Smell The Acrid Smell. I Am Now Taking It In Again. Very Disappointed.

Horrible Rotten Egg, Burning Smell When Accelerating In The Cabin. Have Taken It In 3 Times And They Tell Me It Will Burn Off Between 10-15000 Miles. I Can’t Imagine That The Fumes In The Cabin Are Good For Me And My Family And The Lack Of Concern From ford Is Laughable. We Have Contacted ford With Minimal, Unhelpful Responses From Them. Along With Health Concerns, The Smell Coming Out Of The Exhaust Is Awful And Probably Should Be Brought To The Epa. I Attempted To Drive 2 New 2015 Straight Of The Train And They Both Were Just As Bad. This Is Not An Isolated Problem.

I Am Going Into The 5th Month Of Leasing My 2015 ford explorer And I Am Not Happy With This Vehicle. Currently The Odometer Reads 2,100 Miles And They Were Not Enjoyable Miles. I Have To Say That This 2015 explorer Has The Worst Design On The Inside That I’ve Ever Seen. The Outward Visibility From The Driver’s Seat For The Front And Rear Of This Vehicle Is Severely Compromised By The Huge C Pillars Which Create Blind Spots Within The Vehicle. Although This Model Has Blis, I’ve Almost Been In 2 Collisions Because I Cannot See My Right Side Rear Or Left Side Rear Due To The Faulty Design Of The Interior Of The Vehicle. The Blis System Did Not Warn Me That There Was A Tractor Trailer Approaching Me On The Left Side. This Is A Problem That The Dealer Cannot Remedy. This Is A Factory Design Flaw That Is Going To Get Someone Seriously Injured Or Killed Because The Driver Can’t See What’s Coming. The Blis Is Useless. Navigating Through Tight Spaces Is Almost Impossible Because You Cannot See The Front End To Judge Your Distance Between Vehicles/objects And The Wide Front Pillars Also Add To The Frustration Of Trying To See What’s On The Side Of The Vehicle. The Blower Motor For The Heating/ac System Just Turns Off As Well As The Dashboard Cluster Lights And Then Comes Back On After 10 – 15 Seconds. This Has Occurred A Few Times. There Is A Burning Smell Inside The Vehicle Upon Start Up. Not Sure If It’s Exhaust Gas Entering The Vehicle Or If It’s Something In The Heater/ac System. (i Was Told At The Dealership That This Is A Common Problem And Will Dissipate After A Few Thousand Miles). Not The Answer That I Wanted To Hear. I Do Not Feel Safe Driving This Vehicle. The Sensation Of Not Feeling Safe While Driving Makes For Unsafe Driving. My Life And The Lives Of My Passengers And Other Motorists Is Of My Utmost Concern. I Am Returning This Suv To ford.

This New 2015 ford explorer Produces A Very Strong Exhaust/sulfer Smell Inside The Passenger Cabin With All The Windows Up And The Rear A.c. On. The Smell Is Very Strong When The Vehicle Is Rapidly Accelerated. With The Rear A.c. Off, And The Front On, The Smell Is Greatly Diminished, But Still Noticeable During Hard Acceleration. The Dealership Has Verified The Problem And Attempted To Fix It Four Different Times. ford Has A Tsb On The Problem That Includes Sealing The Rear A.c. Intake Ports And Sealing The Rear Seams At The Back Of The Vehicle, But None Of These Repairs Have Reduced The Strong Odor And Noxious Fumes Inside The Cabin. The Fumes Are Strong Enough To Cause Burning Of The Eyes, Throat And Nose.

When Accelerating The Vehicle A Strong Exhaust Smell Fills The Cabin. The Smell Is Overwhelming And Causes A Scratchy Sensation In Your Throat. This Is My Second explorer (the First Was “lemon-lawed” For The Same Issue). ford Was Quick To Replace The First Vehicle, However Not As Eager To Replace The Second. I Have A Small Child And Worry About His Health And How It Is Affecting Him. Someone Really Needs To Look Into This Issue. Buyers Beware…i Will Lose Money If I Have To Trade This Vehicle. Think Twice Before You Purchase An explorer.

I Purchased A Brand New 2015 ford explorer Xlt, 3.5 V6, In November 2014. At Approximately 7,000 Miles (beginning In April 2015) I Started To Notice A Rotten Egg Odor Inside The Vehicle During Acceleration, While Entering The Freeway. The Smell Would Occur Especially During A Hard Acceleration. The Smell Was Noticeable While The A/c System Was On “vent” And “recirculate” Mode. On 7/6/2015 I Took The explorer To My ford Dealership And They Acknowledged The Complaint And Stated There Was A Service Bulletin 14-130 To Correct The Problem. Their Description On The Fix, Was That A Special Air-filter Located Inside The Rear Bumper Area Needed To Be Replace. They Stated That The Smell Is Coming From My Evap-canister. I Left The explorer There For The Repair And It Took Them Almost Two Days. They Said, It Was At Least A Full Days Labor To Fix The Problem Because They Had To Remove The Whole Rear Bumper And Other Parts, Etc. After The Repair Was Made, A Week Later, I Was Able To Take The explorer On The Freeway And Still Noticed The Rotten Egg Odor During Acceleration. This Time The Odor Is Only Noticeable During “vent” Mode When The A/c Is Turned On. I Am Contacting My Dealer Today About This. I Am Very Concerned About This Issue With Other ford Owners Because These “fumes” In The Cabin Area Most Likely Are Affecting Your Health And Other Passengers.

I Own A Brand New 2015 ford explorer. We Purchased The Vehicle About A Month Ago. The Second Day We Had The Vehicle We Noticed A Strong Smell That Would Fill The Cabin Of The Car During Acceleration. We Thought The Smell Was Just The “new” Burning Off The Engine, Fast Forward To A Month Later And The Problem Is Just As Strong As Ever. I Was Curious So I Googled The Issue And To My Shock There Are Thousands Of Cases With The Exact Same Problem. There Is Even A Class Action Lawsuit In Place At This Time About This Very Problem. I Have Tried Contacting ford With No Help Whatsoever. I Am Concerned About The Safety And Well Being Of My Family In What Was Supposed To Be A Reliable And Safe Vehicle. Cases Of Carbon Monoxide Illness From Exhaust Fumes Are Nothing That Needs To Be Pushed Aside.

New (dealer Demo), 2015 explorer Xlt With ~6000 Miles On It. The Vehicle Cabin Fills With Acrid, “hair/plastic Burning” Smelling Fumes When Under Heavy Acceleration; Mostly At >4500rpm While Trying To Pass Or Enter Traffic. The Fumes Cause Headache And Nausea And Actually Leave A Long Lasting, Burning/oily Taste In The Mouth Afterwards. It Takes All Windows Open For Many Minutes To Clear Most Of The Fumes/smell Out. The Physical Effects Seem To Last For Up To 30 Minutes. This Appears To Be A Condition That Has Existed Since The 2011 Model And Is Still Present In The 2015 Model.

Purchased A Brand New 2015 ford explorer. Almost Immediately Began Smelling Exhaust Fumes. Concerned That This Wasn’t “new Car Break-in”, I Purchased A Carbon Monoxide Detector With Memory. Over A Couple Of Weeks Of Driving The Detector Registered 97 Ppm At Peak. After Checking On The Internet, I Found Others That Have Had A Similar Problem.

We Have Also Encountered Exhaust Fumes In The Vehicle. On Long Trips We Have Also Experienced Fatigue Dizziness And Nausea. When We Go On The Trips We Have A Sheltie Which Comes With Us, And He Has Not Looked Good At Times Also. So On A Trip Today 7-7-2015 We Brought Along A Co Detector, On The Way Down For The Hr Trip The Level Was @ 81. That’s With The Ac On With Temps Outside @ 82. On The Way Back From Are Hr Trip With Temps Still In The 80’s The Co Level Was @ 183. If You Look At The Cpsc.gov Website You Can See That @ The Levels Of 150-220 It Will Cause Disorientation / Unconsciousness & Death!!!!!!!!!!!! So @ This Point In Our Lives In Our 50’s We Do Not Want To Die. We Will Be Asking ford To Take Our Explore Xlt Limited Back Before We Die. It Only Has 4200 K On It. I’m Only Hoping ford Will Take This Matter Seriously.we Will Be Contacting ford Tomorrow 7-8-2015 To File A Formal Complaint To Address This Problem, So Others Don’ T Have To Deal With The Co.

I Purchased A Brand New 2015 ford explorer Xlt, 3.5 V6, In November 2014. At Approximately 7,000 Miles (beginning In April 2015) I Started To Notice A Rotten Egg Odor Inside The Vehicle During Acceleration, While Entering The Freeway. The Smell Would Occur Especially During A Hard Acceleration. The Smell Was Noticeable While The A/c System Was On “vent” And “recirculate” Mode. On 7/6/2015 I Took The explorer To My ford Dealership And They Acknowledged The Complaint And Stated There Was A Service Bulletin 14-130 To Correct The Problem. Their Description On The Fix, Was That A Special Air-filter Located Inside The Rear Bumper Area Needed To Be Replace. They Stated That The Smell Is Coming From My Evap-canister. I Left The explorer There For The Repair And It Took Them Almost Two Days. They Said, It Was At Least A Full Days Labor To Fix The Problem Because They Had To Remove The Whole Rear Bumper And Other Parts, Etc. After The Repair Was Made, A Week Later, I Was Able To Take The explorer On The Freeway And Still Noticed The Rotten Egg Odor During Acceleration. This Time The Odor Is Only Noticeable During “vent” Mode When The A/c Is Turned On. I Am Contacting My Dealer Today About This. I Am Very Concerned About This Issue With Other ford Owners Because These “fumes” In The Cabin Area Most Likely Are Affecting Your Health And Other Passengers.

When Performing A Hard Acceleration Entering The Interstate Or Quickly Maneuvering Around Another Vehicle, There Is A Strange Odor That Comes Through The Vents. Smells Like Exhaust. This Both When The Windows Are Up And The A/c Is On Or If Widows Are Down And A/c Turned Off. The Smell Lasts A Few Seconds Before Going Away. I’m Concerned About The Long Term Effects Of This On Personal Health. My 2015 explorer Is Currently At ford Being Checked Out. I’ve Been Told There Is A Tsb Out On This Issue, But They Don’t Know How To Repair It. Waiting On Some Kind Of Positive Outcome At This Point.
