My Explore Has Failed To Start On 4 Different Occasions. The Dealer Service Department Sent A Tow To Get The Car, And The Driver Got It To Start After Several Attempts, Then He Shut If Off And It Failed To Start Again. The Service Manager Told Me He Couldn’t Get The Issue To Occur So There Wasn’t Anything For Him To Do Even Though He Had A Fault Code. My Explore Only Has Lest Than 9000 Miles And Is Still Under Warranty But Yet They Are Telling Me There Isn’t Anything They Can Done After Keeping My Car For 3 Weeks. There Should Be Things That Should Be Replaced With The Fault Code, But Yet Nothing Was Done. Has Anyone Else Experienced This Type Of Issue? If So, What Was Done To Resolve This Issue.

I Have Plans To Contact ford Customer Satisfaction To This Serious Defected Steering Problem. I Have Concerns With The ford Replacement Steering That It May As Well Have Future Issues.

When Steering Left Or Right At A Standstill, Steering Makes A Popping Or Clicking Noise. My Guess Is It Is Either Rack And Pinion Assembly Or Suspension Parts. In Addition, Rear End Has A Bad Rattle Even On Smooth Roads. There Is About 59,500 Miles On The Suv And It Was Just State Inspected. We Are Afraid To Drive It. Checked Complaint Boards And There Are Many Similar Problems.

Started Car And Put In Reverse And Noticed That The Steering Was Not Working Normally And Then Noticed The Power Steering Fault Assist And Service Advance Trac Notification. Also At The Same Time, The Turn Signal Would Not Stay Engaged. I Managed To Drive 100 Miles Home With “manual Steering” On The Highway And Needed To Use One Hand To Change Lanes. If This Problem Happened Going 60 Miles Per Hour, An Accident Or Worse, Lose Of Life, As What Happened Was Unexpected And Steering Was Very Difficult. This Vehicle Was Bought 1/2/15 And This Problem Happened At 26,100 Miles And The Repair Cost $2,147.25 At The ford Dealer By My House. Since ford Was Able To Replace The Assembly The Same Day Leads Me To Believe This Is A Very Common Problem And Stock The Parts And Looking At Other Complaints Online, An Ongoing Issue With ford Vehicles In General. ford Had A 1.1 Million Recall For This On The 2011-2013 Vehicles And They Never Fixed The Issue Going Forward. A Recall Needs To Be Done.

-failure Of Electronic Steering Gear- I Have A 2015fordexplorer Sport With 50,000 Miles On It. 2 Weeks Ago I Had A “steering Fault Assist” Light Come On While Driving The Vehicle On The Interstate. I Did Not Experience An Issue Steering At The Time. Once I Pulled Off The Interstate I Restarted The Vehicle And The Alert Went Away. 5 Days Later I Was Diving In The City And The “steering Fault Assist” Light Came On Again Followed By “advance Trak Warning.” I Lost Power Steering Immediately. I Got To An Area To Pull Off And Restarted The Vehicle. Both Warnings Immediately Came Back On. I Was Over 4 Hours From Home, So I Had To Drive Over 250 Miles Without Power Steering. I Called Multiple ford Service Locations In My Area, Only One Would Take It And Look At It Within The Week. I Found Out Today That Following A Diagnostic Test, I Am Needing To Replace The Electronic Steering Gear As It Failed Internally. ford Quoted Me $2000 + Tax To Fix It. After Going Online, I Have Found Numerous Complaints Of The Exact Same Thing Happening With Other fordexplorer Owners. I Am Completely Disappointed In ford!

A Little Over A Month Ago The Left Rear Toe Link Broke While Driving. This Caused The Car To Lose Control And Go Into A Sideways Slide, Breaking The Wheel Hub In The Process. Smooth Road Going About 50 Mph In Good Conditions. We Got The Car Fixed And Had To Pay For The Repairs Since The Car Is No Longer Under Factory Warranty. After The ford Dealer In Mchenry Il Had It For Over A Week, We Got The Car Back, Drove It For A Few Days And Suddenly We Had A Cracked Exhaust Flex Pipe. We Had To Pay Several Hundred More To Get That Repaired. Again, Driven On Smooth Roads In The Summer, Nothing That Would Have Caused This So Suddenly. Got The Car Back Again After Several More Days In The Shop.. Drove It For A Couple More Days And The Left Rear Toe Link Broke.. Again… Dealer This Time Installed The “recall Kit” On Both Sides. Luckily, This Time It Was At Slow Speeds Coming Into A Parking Lot . Had The Car Towed Back To The Dealer. Again.. We Have Had The Car Back For About 3 Days Now, And The Left Toe Link Has Come Loose.. Again.. The Car Will Be Towed Back To The Dealer Tomorrow Because It Is Unsafe To Drive. It Was Driven 3 Times At Low Speeds Around Town Since We Got It Back. My Wife Is Now Afraid To Drive The Car Out Of Fear Of It Breaking Again. This Is A Serious Issue If The Recall Part Doesn’t Work. When This Part Fails, This Car Has A Severe Loss Of Control And Can Very Easily Result In An Accident. ford Needs To Get To The Bottom Of This Before Someone Gets Killed.

As We Were Turning Into A Parking Space There Was A Popping Sound So I Immediately Took The Car To The Dealer. We Were Told That The Rack And Pinion Was Defective Which Is The Second Time This Has Happened In A ford Around The 40,000 Mile Mark. If The Rack Had Failed At High Speed It Could Well Have Been Fatal.
