Last Nights As I Drove My New 2017 explorer 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.

Mileage was 20 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FM5K8FH1HG. Ford Explorer 2017 problem was reported in AVON, OH. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 65 mph.

I Have Encountered Too Many Issues With This vehicle, My Biggest Issue Has To Do With What I Thought I Was Having A “falling Asleep At The Wheel” Issue. There Were A Few Times Last Winter, After Letting The Car Sit Stationary And Warm Up , That I Couldn’t “stay Awake” While Driving Home On The Freeway. It Happened Once, Twice, Then Continued, And It Became Apparent It Was The vehicle, Not Me, That Was Causing This. It Can Be Best Described As The Sensation Right Before Being Put Under For A Medical Procedure. I Would Then Come Out Of This Unconcious State In Potentlally Deadly Driving Situations. I Also Noticed That My Dog Was Being Affected At The Same Time. I Could See Him Getting Anxious Next To Me, And Then Have What Looked Like A Panic Attack Until I Put The Window Down. He Would Keep His Head Outside The vehicle For A Majority Of The Ride. I Basically Stopped Using The Heater. At The Same Time, The Battery Kept Dying, And The vehicle Would Shut Down And Go Into A “battery Safe” Mode, And It Needed To Be Jumped Every Other Trip. When I Took The Car To The Dealer, They Basically Said There May Be A Problem, But They Didn’t Have The Replacement Parts, And Would Call Me When They Got In. I Never Heard Back From Them. This Is My 3rd And Last Lease With ford, My Previous 2 Edges Both Had Numerous Electrical Issues, Including Loosing Power While Driving. Now, I’m In An Unsafe vehicle, And They Won’t Even Acknowledge The Problem. I Want Out Of My Lease, But In My Experience With ford, The Consumer Looses Every Time. Can’t Fight Them If They Don’t Acknowledge The Problem. I’m Praying For My Life, And Other Drivers Lives That Something Get Resolved Quickly Before Someone Looses Their Life. Doesn’t Seem Fair That The Consumer Has To Pay For The Companies Shortcomings…

I Purchased My ford explorer 2017, In September Of 2016, I Have Returned Back To The Dealer More Than 10 Times Less Than A 2 Year Period. My First Problem Was The Truck Would Not Get Enough Speed, Unless I Hit The Gas 2 Oir 3 Times, The Dealer Came It Wasn’t A Problem Until The Engine Light Came On, And Than I Was Told It Was A Recall On It, But When I Check, There Was No Recall On My Vin. I Have 5 Batteries Since I Had The Truck, I Ask Them What Is Causing This, I Never Get A Response. My Ac/heat Went Out, I Told Them, I Notice Something Coming In Through The Vents. I Informed The Dealer’s Repair Department That It Smelled Like A Rotten Egg Or Just Look Like Air Coming In The Vents. I Never Got An Answer To That Question. I Tried Calling ford Corporate Office, But Know One Never Returned My Call.

Rear Suspension Toe Link Recall: Driving Approximately 50 Miles/hr With My Husband Behind The Wheel And Myself And Our 3 Children In This Family Vehicle, This Rear Suspension Broke. We Live In Rural Saline County And Drive Gravel Daily. The Incident Happened While Entering A Bridge On A Highway. We Lost Almost Complete Control Of Steering Requiring The Driver To Completely Turn The Wheel As Quickly As Possible In One Direction And Turn Back As Quickly As Possible In The Other Swerving And Forcefully Circling Back And Forth On A Bridge Until The Vehicle Finally Came To A Stop Further Down The Road. God’ Grace Alone Saved Us From Going Over The Bridge, Or Hitting Oncoming Traffic Or Having Injuries, Potentially Fatal At This Rate Of Speed And Location. I Am Dissatisfied In The Notification Of Recall Information From The Dealer And Nhtsa. I Only Found Out What Must Have Happened After Googling ‘ford explorer‘ And Seeing A News Post 2 Days Earlier. The Notification Of The Recall Will Come Much Too Late In The Mail In The Next Couple Weeks. Too Late! There Has Got To Be A Better, Fast Way Of Notifying Driver So The Recall Parts More Timely. We Have The Technology. Put Your Family In This Situation And Say This Way Of Notifying The Consumer Is Adequate!

I Was Stuck At A Standstill In Traffic On A City Highway With My Family On Father’s Day When The Dash Lit Up With Multiple Warnings Such As “steering Loss Stop Safely,” “service Advancetrac,” “stability Control Off,” And “hill Start Assist Not Available.” I Was Not Moving And Could Not Understand What Happened. No One Was Injured And The Vehicle’s Power Steering Failed. The Vehicle Was Not Overheating. Roadside Brought The Vehicle To A Nearby Dealer. Eventually, Two Days Later, The Computer Said We Needed A New Steering Column (i Thought A Steering Column Should Last The Life Of The Vehicle…). There Were No Warning Signs, No Leaks, And No Strange Noises. Of Course, I Was Past My Warranty. Pretty Hefty Bill. There Is An New Recall For A Rear Suspension Problem That Was Issued Just Days Earlier.

Risk To Safety: A Fracture Of A Rear Toe Link Significantly Diminishes Steering Control, Increasing The Risk Of A Crash! I Have Contacted 3 Different Deals In My Area (ecino, Ca, 91316) All Said That The Replacement Parts Are Currently Unavailable. In Addition, On Thursday, June 27th, 2019 I Have Contacted ford Motor Company To See If The Issue Can Be Resolved But I Got The Same Answer. They Said I Have To Wait Until The Parts Are Available And They Are Currently Back Ordered With No Estimated Time For The Issue With The Vehicle Can Be Resolved. They Have Asked Me If I Would Like ford Motor Company To “lemon” The Vehicle And Buy It Back, I Replied: “absolutely Yes”. They Have Opened A Case#: [xxx] I Am Seriously Worried For My Life When Driving The ford explorer. I Suffer From Understeering Whenever I Attempt A Left Or Right Turn. At Speed Over 40 Mph, The Vehicle Will Start Shaking Giving Me A Sense Of Almost No Grip To The Road. In Addition, I Constantly Have The “front Airbag” Light On (see Picture Attached) The Dashboard, Both When Vehicle Is In Motion & Stationary. This Issue Happened Before And I Took The Car To A ford Dealer To Resolve The Issue (the Service Tech Said That The Sensor Was Malfunctioned And In A Case Of An Accident, “front Airbag” Might Not Deploy!!! This Is Absolutely Absurd. I Here By Certifie That My Vehicle Is Serviced On Time (see Picture Attached) And Currently Has 29,492 Miles On It (see Picture Attached).

At Around 35,800 Miles, I Noticed A Slight Jerk Of The Steering Wheel When Going Around Curves. I Was Going 70mph On The Highway For A Quick Afternoon Trip Out Of Town. On The Way Home (36,000 Miles) It Was Doing This Even When Driving Straight. I Had My Husband Drive It When I Got Back, And That?s When We Decided To Get It To The Nearest Dealership (45 Miles Away). The Whole Rack And Pinion Steering Column Was Severely Corroded And Needed To Be Replaced. I Was Without My Vehicle For Over A Month While ford Gave Us The Runaround On Whether Or Not It Would Be Covered Since We Were Almost 200 Miles Out Of Warranty By The Time The Vehicle Was At Their Facility. When Driving It There Going About 40mph On The Highway, The Power Steering Went Out Entirely And Threw The Car Clear Across The Road. Thankfully It Went To The Right And Into The Ditch, Because Had It Jerked To The Left, We?d Probably Be Dead. It Jerked All Over The Road The Whole Way To The Dealership.

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 2017 explorers 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 2017 ford explorer Sport. ford.com Was Informed Of This.

My 2017 ford explorer Xlt With Base 3.5 V6 Has Been Hard To Start From The First Week Of Ownership. It Has Less Than 5000 Miles On It Now And Isn’t Fixed. ford Dealership Stated It Would Have To Get Worse Before They Could Fix It. Vehicle Shows No Dtc’s Or Any History! My Wife Has Refused To Drive It Out Of Town Due To The Fear Of It Not Starting At All. We Have Recorded Over 30 Videos Of It Not Starting And Have Sent Videos To ford Motor Co. With The Same Response, Cant Fix It If It Isn’t Broke. Apparently It Will Have To Either Break Something Internally And Leave My Wife And Child Stranded, Before It Will Be Diagnosed. It Is A $40000 Lemon That Takes 3-4 Times Attempting To Start Before The Engine Will Run. This Weekend It Took At Least 30-40 Seconds Before Vehicle Started, Then It Would Not Idle Correctly! Still No Dtc’s! Vehicle Does This No Matter The Length Of Time Engine Has Run Or Level Of Fuel? It Does It During Remote Start Or The Push Button. It Does At Times Have A Strong Odor Of Gas After Start-up, Almost As If It Was Flooded? As A Person In The Automotive Repair World, The Absence Of Concern From ford Is Shocking! So Instead Of Trying To Correct A Issue Before It Becomes A Danger, They Would Rather It Become Dangerous And Then Repair It? If It Is A Fuel Related Issue, Then This Is A Potential Hazard That Needs To Be Addressed. The Vehicle Is Getting Worse, But As Said Earlier, It Will Have To Completely Not Start Before Something Is Done. ford Motor Co Has Not Been Very Helpful, And Now I Am Proud Owner Of Vehicle That Will Not Start Correctly.

I Was Stopped At A Traffic Light On The Highway To Make A Left. Once Light Changed, I Stepped On The Gas And The Car Wouldn’t Move. I Then Heard A Loud “thump” And Thought I’d Been Hit From The Rear. What Actually Happened Was The Transmission, Slammed Into Gear And Proceeded To Move At About 2-3 Mph. It Never Regained Speed. As I Made My Turn, I Was Stuck On Another Major Road At A Traffic Light And I Placed In Neutral And Heard The Loud “thump” Again As The Trans Shifted Into Neutral. Once The Traffic Light Changed, I Put The Vehicle Back Into “drive” And Yet Again, A Loud “thump” As It Slammed Into Drive. Vehicle Again Proceeded To Move At A Snails Pace, At About 2-3 Mph. Finally On The Dash I Got A “wrench” Light And The Engine Light Come On As Well. I Pulled Over On A Side Street And Turned The Vehicle Off. I Waited A Few Minutes, Turned The Vehicle Back On And When I Shifted Into Reverse, Neutral And Then Drive, The Transmission Slammed Into Gear On Each Of Them Very Hard. I Proceeded To Turn The Vehicle Off And Call A Tow Service To Have The Vehicle Dropped Off At The Dealership.

Vehicle Surge On First Acceleration After Starting The Engine. Surge – The Vehicle Experiences An Accelerating Lunge Forward And Then Stops For About Two Or Three Cycles (stop/start, Stop/start Etc.) It Is Unexpected And Uncontrollable Until It Subsides Within 20 To 30 Feet. The Degree Of The Unexpected Acceleration Is Excessive When Compared To The Slight Application Of The Gas Pedal Conditions – Happens Only After The First Startup Of The Engine, In Warmer Weather When The “choke” Is Not Required. Example: Start Engine, Back Out Of Garage, Place In First Gear, Accelerate Slowly For The First Time. This Is When The Surge Is Experience. It Does Not Happen With Every Stop/start Cycle During Normal Driving, Like Stopping At A Traffic Light. It Happens Only After Starting The Engine, And Going Forward For The First Time. The Primary Problem Is The Degree Of The Uncontrolled, Oscillating Acceleration Relative To The Slight Amount That The Gas Pedal Is Applied. It Is Not About An Overly Sensitive Accelerator Pedal. It About The Engine Surging, Then Dying Off, Then Surging Again.

The Car Lurches For The First 40-50 Feet At Slow Speeds While Applying Minimal Pressure On The Gas Pedal. It Happens The Initial Time Putting It In Drive After Each Engine Start, Regardless Of Putting It In Reverse First Or Not. It Used To Only Happen After Every Few Starts, But Has Progressed To Every Single Time Now And Some Can Be Very Aggressive. The Dealership Has Attempted To Fix The Issue 5 Times Now, With The 5th Time Resulting In Them Saying It Is A “normal Characteristic” Of The Vehicle, Without Being Able To Explain What Is Causing It. I Was Told By The Local Service Manager That He “doesn’t Know Why It Is Doing It, But It’s Normal.” He Then Proceeded To Compare The Characteristic To Someone Poorly Releasing The Clutch On A Manual Vehicle And Again, Still Claiming That Everything Is Perfectly Normal.

Twice Since Purchasing My New explorer I Have Gotten Deathly Ill While Driving, Had To Pull Over And Be Taken By Ambulance To The Emergency Room. I’m 70 Years Old And Had Thought It Was A Medical Issue. However, I Have Been Poked And Probed For Every Possible Aliment And All Have Come Back Negative And Am In Great Health. Even My Heart Tests Were Outstanding. I Saw The explorer Stories On The News, Looked Up Carbon Monoxide Poisoning And Note Those Were The Symptoms I Had. In The Incident Last Week I Was Feeling Worse And Worse As I Drove And Was Just Able To Get Off The Road Before I Passed Out, My Vision Had Gone Blank, I Starting Sweating With The Air On, And I Became Extremely Dizzy And Disorientated. I Spent Two Days In The Hospital Thinking I Was Dying Because That’s How I Felt. I’m In Excellent Health, Bike 20 Miles Day 2-4 Days Week, Play League Hockey, Avid Golfer That Has Competed At The National Level, Etc. This Was Not A ‘illness’, I’m Convinced It Was Carbon Monoxide Posioning. Updated 11/06/2017*js The Consumer Requested A Status Update. Updated 12/07/2017*js *js The Consumer Stated That He Passed Out While Driving The Vehicle And Required Hospitilization. *js

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.

Driving Down A Dirt Trail From A Mountain Outlook The Cars Electrical Shut Off. We Had No Control Of Brakes, Or Anything But Stearing. Not To Mention We Were Picking Up Major Speed Down A Mountain, And Bouncing Everywhere. We Had To Swerve Back And Forth, Hitting Bushes And Semi Driving Up The Side Of The Mountain To Try And Slow Down. Our Whole Family Was In The Car, Including A Two Month Old And A Three Year Old. The Only Way We Got It To Work Again Was Slamming The Shifter Into Neutral And Then Pushing The Restart Button, But It Was Probably Just Our Prayers That Got The Car To Turn Back On And Give Us Brake Control Again. I’m Afraid To Drive My Car In Fear Of It Happening Again.

Rear Suspension Toe Link Recall: Driving Approximately 50 Miles/hr With My Husband Behind The Wheel And Myself And Our 3 Children In This Family Vehicle, This Rear Suspension Broke. We Live In Rural Saline County And Drive Gravel Daily. The Incident Happened While Entering A Bridge On A Highway. We Lost Almost Complete Control Of Steering Requiring The Driver To Completely Turn The Wheel As Quickly As Possible In One Direction And Turn Back As Quickly As Possible In The Other Swerving And Forcefully Circling Back And Forth On A Bridge Until The Vehicle Finally Came To A Stop Further Down The Road. God’ Grace Alone Saved Us From Going Over The Bridge, Or Hitting Oncoming Traffic Or Having Injuries, Potentially Fatal At This Rate Of Speed And Location. I Am Dissatisfied In The Notification Of Recall Information From The Dealer And Nhtsa. I Only Found Out What Must Have Happened After Googling ‘ford explorer‘ And Seeing A News Post 2 Days Earlier. The Notification Of The Recall Will Come Much Too Late In The Mail In The Next Couple Weeks. Too Late! There Has Got To Be A Better, Fast Way Of Notifying Driver So The Recall Parts More Timely. We Have The Technology. Put Your Family In This Situation And Say This Way Of Notifying The Consumer Is Adequate!

Vehicle Has An Nhtsa Recall Notice#:19v435 And A ford Issued Recall#:19s17 Which Indicates As Follows: Recall Description: Rear Suspension Toe Link Replacement. Risk To Safety: A Fracture Of A Rear Toe Link Significantly Diminishes Steering Control, Increasing The Risk Of A Crash! I Have Contacted 3 Different Deals In My Area (ecino, Ca, 91316) All Said That The Replacement Parts Are Currently Unavailable. In Addition, On Thursday, June 27th, 2019 I Have Contacted ford Motor Company To See If The Issue Can Be Resolved But I Got The Same Answer. They Said I Have To Wait Until The Parts Are Available And They Are Currently Back Ordered With No Estimated Time For The Issue With The Vehicle Can Be Resolved. They Have Asked Me If I Would Like ford Motor Company To “lemon” The Vehicle And Buy It Back, I Replied: “absolutely Yes”. They Have Opened A Case#: [xxx] I Am Seriously Worried For My Life When Driving The ford explorer. I Suffer From Understeering Whenever I Attempt A Left Or Right Turn. At Speed Over 40 Mph, The Vehicle Will Start Shaking Giving Me A Sense Of Almost No Grip To The Road. In Addition, I Constantly Have The “front Airbag” Light On (see Picture Attached) The Dashboard, Both When Vehicle Is In Motion & Stationary. This Issue Happened Before And I Took The Car To A ford Dealer To Resolve The Issue (the Service Tech Said That The Sensor Was Malfunctioned And In A Case Of An Accident, “front Airbag” Might Not Deploy!!! This Is Absolutely Absurd. I Here By Certifie That My Vehicle Is Serviced On Time (see Picture Attached) And Currently Has 29,492 Miles On It (see Picture Attached). I Am Not Sure What Is Nhtsa Part In All Of This, But If You Can Help Me Deal With ford Motor Company In Resolving These Issues And Get Rid Of This Vehicle, L Will Be Very Pleased And Appreciative.

I Took The Car To Fugate ford, Who Said They Recently Processed Two Other Vehicles With Bad Hankook Tires. On Closer Inspection With Doug At Fugate, You Could See The Tire Tread Was Ripping Away From Itself All The Way Around The Tire. Fugate Took Pictures And Phoned Hankook. Fugate Called Me To Say That Because The Tires Had 6/32 Tread Remaining, They Would Not Process The Claim. Hankook Needed The Tread Wear To Be 4/32 Or Less. In My View, That’s Ridiculous… These Hankook Tires Are Defective And Unsafe, Whether At 6/32 Or 4/32. Today, I Had All Four Defective Tires Replaced.
