On February 19, 2017 While Driving On A Residential Street At Less Than 25mph The Front Passenger Side Tire Suffered A “catastrophic” Sidewall Failure Resulting In The Tire Going Completely Flat In Less That 1 Minute.

Upon Parking Our Brand New explorer In Our Driveway (it Has A 10 Degree Slant), We Turned Off The Keyless/push Button Ignition, But My Husband Accidentally Had It In Drive. Our Small Children Were Unclipping Their Seatbelts And Starting To Get Out Of The Vehicle When My Husband Took His Foot Off The Brake. With The Car In Drive And Ignition Off, It Rolled Back Very Quickly Down Our Driveway. This Could Have Been Deadly To Our Small Children Had They Opened Their Doors. I Called ford.com Who Told Me To Call The Dealer. I Called Dealer. They Took One Of Their 2017explorers From The Lot And Tried To Get It To Roll In Gear After Turning Off The Engine And Their Vehicle Also Did It. In Reverse And In Drive. Their Solution Was To “make Sure You Have It In Park Before You Turn It Off.” Some One Is Going To Die!!! Even If I Would Make It Out Before Getting Run Over, My Baby In A Car Seat In The Back Of The Car Would Be Rolled Into The Busy Street Within A Matter Of Seconds!! Killing Her And Any Oncoming Car Or Truck!!! Also, This Same explorer- With Only 800 Miles On It, Had Its Transmission Fall Off The Mount And Land On The Axle And Broke The Axled While I Was Driving Down The Street. Heard Banging Sounds, Then They Got Louder, Then The Steering Got Hard, Then It Felt Like It Was Falling Apart-all In The Matter Of 1 Mile On A City Street Going 25mph. Not Sure If We Just Got A Lemon Here? Put The Gear/rolling After Engine Off If Not In Park Is Very, Very Serious And Needs To Me Looked Into Before Someone Dies!!!!!!! I Don’t Have The Repair Sheet To Scan Because A Week After The Tranmission/axle Were Repaired, It Started Vibrating And Swerving When I Was Braking, So It’s Back In The Shop. We’ve Owned The Car For About 3 Weeks And It’s Been In The Shop For A Large Percentage Of That Time. This Specific Model Is The 2017fordexplorer Sport. ford.com Was Informed Of This.

Last Nights As I Drove My New 2017explorer Off The Lot With Only 11 Miles On It, I Drove On Surface Streets And Then Onto The Highway. After I Got Up To 65 Mph The explorer Started To Lose Acceleration On The Highway. I Had To Get Off At The Next Exit And Then Had Great Difficulty Getting The Car To Move From 0 To 30 Miles Per Hour To Get Back To The Dealership Using The Side Streets. I Now Have A Loaner Car And I Was First Told It Could Be The Electronic Throttle Body, And Then After A Hookup To The Computer Was Told It Was In Transport Mode – However Nothing On The Instrument Panel Registered Any Problems. I Had Test Driven The Car On Saturday 3/18/17 Using Both Surface Streets And Highways, And Last Night (3/20/17) I Was Able To Get It Up To Speed On The Highway Again. The Experience Was Very Scary As I Had To Maneuver Out Of Traffic To Get Off The Highway At Speed Below 40 Mph Until I Could Get To The Side Streets.

On 09/15/16 We Purchased A 2017fordexplorer Limited From Supreme ford Of Slidell, La. Two Weeks After Having The Suv, We Noticed The Right Tail Light Was Not Working At Times. On 11/16/2016, We Drove The Vehicle Back To The Dealership To Repair The Light. When The Sales Manager Drove The Suv To The Service Department The Rear Right Taillight Was Working.. But When The Service Manager Looked At The Suv, The Light Was Working. But When We Started Back To Denham Springs, La, The Right Taillight Started Acting Up Again. I Took Several Videos Of The Light Randomly Going Off And On The Trip Back Home With My Iphone. I Attached Video Of The Light, I Edited It To A Smaller Size And Emailed Back To The Dealership. On 11/17/16 We Received A Reply From The Service Manager Stating; Thank You For Taking The Time To Video And Send It To Us Regarding The Taillamp Concern You Are Having With Your 2017explorer, The Next Time The Concern Display Itself Consistently, A Rental At Our Expense For A Day To See If We Can Isolate The Cause. [xxx] Service Manager Supreme ford Slidell [xxx] [xxx] I Replied To The Dealership; [xxx], The New 2017fordexplorer Limited Still Has A Problem With The Right Tail Light Intermittently Working About %50 Of The Time. I Do Not Think There Will Be A Time When The Tail Light Will “consittantly” Go Out… This Problem Needs To Be Repaired Asap Before Someone Is Killed In An Automobile Accident… The Video Clip I Sent You Is Just A Sampling Of The Tail Light Intermittently Going Out During Our Drive Home To Denham Springs… I Am Concerned With Driving The “lemon Vehicle” And Beleive That ford Needs To Replace The “lemon Vehicle” With A Proper Working New 2017fordexplorer Limited, With A Adaptive Cruise Control As The Salesperson Stated The Vehicle Had.

The Headlights Are Far Too Bright,even In Daylight Conditions.as An Unintended Consequence Of An Effort To Increase The Visibility Of The Vehicle,they Are Quite Capable Of Momentarily Blinding Oncoming Drivers.obviously,this Effort To Increase Headlight Intensity Is Overlooking The Fact That It May Be Causing Serious Injury To Other Drivers.

Brakes Are Very Sensitive. When Applying Them You Have To Think A Lot About Foot Pressure. Unless You Want To Come To A Complete Stop At 60 Mph. Local fordservice Manager Told Me He Knows About The Sensitivity And No Fix For It At This Time. So We Will Wait Till We Have A Possible Accident Or Sell The Care As Is.
