Summary of Complaint

THE DRIVERS SIDE DOOR DOES NOT 'CLOSE' PROPERLY, THE 'DOOR AJAR' SIGN IS CONSISTENTLY ON EVEN THOUGH THE ACTUAL DOOR IS CLOSED. WHEN YOU GET IN/OUT OF THE CAR, YOU HAVE TO SHUT THE DOOR MULTIPLE TIMES FOR IT TO RECOGNIZE THE DOOR IS CLOSED. MANY TIMES I HAVE TO SLAM IT SO HARD, I'M AFRAID I'LL BREAK THE DOOR. THE CAR DOORS WON'T LOCK, CAUSE IT DOESN'T RECOGNIZE THAT THE DOOR IS 'CLOSED'.THE KEYLESS ENTRY ALARM WILL RANDOMLY GO OFF, WHILE WE'RE IN THE HOUSE, CAUSE THE CAR ALL THE SUDDEN SAYS THE 'DOOR IS AJAR'. THIS CAN BE HAZARDOUS AS I DRIVE AS THE DOORS WON'T LOCK AND WE HAVE YOUNG CHILDREN IN THE CAR. THIS ALSO EATS AWAY AT THE BATTERY LIFE, CAUSE THE CAR ELECTRICAL SYSTEM IS ON (INTERIOR DOME LIGHTS, ELECTRICAL RADIO PANEL) SINCE THE DOOR IS CONSIDERED OPEN (WITH THE DOOR AJAR SIGN). THIS HAS BEEN ONGOING FOR ABOUT 6-9 MONTHS NOW. *TR

Summary of Complaint

SHORTLY AFTER LEAVING HOME, AS I WAS REACHING A MAJOR ROAD, I FELT MY VEHICLE SUDDENLY START TO SHAKE VIOLENTLY AND MAKE A LOUD NOISE. THE VEHICLE THEN STARTED TO LOSE SPEED AND FAILED TO ACCELERATE. I WAS ABLE TO PUT IT IN PARK AND TURN THE HAZARDS ON. THIS WAS VERY SCARY BECAUSE I HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED ANY VEHICLE OF MINE BEHAVE THIS WAY. I LITERALLY THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO HAVE TO GRAB MY 3 YEAR OLD AND RUN FOR MY LIFE. I THOUGHT IT COULD EXPLODE OR CATCH FIRE OR WHO KNOWS. AT THIS POINT I JUST FELT FEAR. THIS COULD HAVE CAUSED A MAJOR ACCIDENT IF SOMEONE BEHIND ME WOULD'VE REAR ENDED ME. AGAIN, MY CAR STOPPED MOVING FOR NO REASON. THIS COULD POSE A MAJOR THREAT AND I WOULD RECOMMEND ACTIONS BE TAKEN TO RESOLVE THIS ISSUE. AFTER RESEARCHING ONLINE, I LEARNED ABOUT MANY OTHER FORD DRIVERS EXPERIENCING SIMILAR SITUATIONS INVOLVING THE THROTTLE BODY COMPONENT. SOUNDS TO ME LIKE THIS COULD BE A COLLECTIVE PROBLEM. I HOPE FORD WILL TAKE MY CONCERNS INTO CONSIDERATION TO PREVENT ANY FUTURE DANGEROUS SITUATIONS. THANK YOU.

VIN: 1FM5K7D88EG****

Summary of Complaint

QUICK ACCELERATION WAS REQUIRED BECAUSE OF ANOTHER VEHICLE CROSSING INTO MY LANE. I STEPPED ON THE ACCELERATOR AND ALL OF A SUDDEN MY VEHICLE BEGAN ACCELERATING BY ITSELF EVEN THOUGH MY FOOT WAS NOT TOUCHING THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL. I STEPPED ON THE BRAKES AND IT BEGAN TO SLOW DOWN.....HOWEVER, WHEN I LET OFF THE BRAKE THE ACCELERATION CONTINUED AND THE ENGINE RPM JUMPED VERY HIGH. I STEPPED ON THE BRAKES AGAIN AND THE VEHICLE BEGAN TO SLOW. I THEN LET OFF THE BRAKES AGAIN AND THEN ONCE AGAIN THE VEHICLE BEGAN ACCELERATING FAST AND THE RPM SKYROCKETED. I WAS ABLE TO STOP MY VEHICLE AND PUT IT INTO PARK. WHILE THE ENGINE WAS STILL RUNNING I RELEASED THE BRAKE PEDAL. THE ENGINE RPM JUMPED EXTREMELY HIGH AGAIN. I TAPPED THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL WITH MY FOOT A COUPLE TIMES AND IT RELEASED OFF OF THE FLOOR. I TURNED THE IGNITION OFF. I WAITED A COUPLE SECONDS AND THEN TURNED THE ENGINE BACK ON. THE PROBLEM DISAPPEARED. AFTER I GOT HOME, MY HUSBAND WAS CURIOUS IF THE FLOOR MAT MAY HAVE GOTTEN IN THE WAY. HE TRIED TO RECREATE THE PROBLEM OF THE ACCELERATOR STICKING TO THE FLOOR BY WEDGING THE FLOOR MAT AGAINST IT. HE WAS UNABLE TO HOLD THE ACCELERATOR TO THE FLOOR BY WEDGING THE FLOOR MAT AGAINST IT.

Summary of Complaint

EVERY TIME I DRIVE MY 2014 EXPLORER I AM HAVING AN ISSUE WITH A HORRIBLE EXHAUST SMELL THAT IS RECIRCULATING BACK INTO THE VEHICLE. I AM UNABLE TO DRIVE WITH MY WINDOWS DOWN AND TYPICALLY HAVING THE AIR ON MAKES IT WORSE. THERE HAVE BEEN TIMES WHERE OUT OF THE BLUE I HAVE GOTTEN VERY NAUTIOUS AND A VERY BAD HEADACHE AND MY EYES FEEL AS IF THEY WANT TO GO OUT ON ME WHILE DRIVING OVER 30 MINUTES LONG. I FEAR THIS SMELL CAN NOT BE HEALTHY FOR MYSELF OR MY SMALL CHILDREN. I HAVE TAKEN THE CAR IN SEVERAL TIMES TO HAVE IT LOOKED AT FOR THIS ISSUE AND FOR SOME REASON THE DEALERSHIP IS THE ONLY ONES WHO CAN'T SMELL IT! YET EVERYONE ELSE THAT GETS IN CAN'T. COINCIDENCE I THINK NOT. THE CAR IS IN MOTION WHEN THIS SMELL OCCURS. AND IT IS A VERY DESTINCT SMEL. I HAVE DOCUMENTS FOR MY COMPLAINTS BUT I WOULD NEED TO SCAN AND EMAIL THEM TO AN INDIVIDUAL. AND I ALSO HAVE AN EMAIL BETWEEN MYSELF AND THE OWNERS OF THE DEALERSHIP I BOUGHT THE CAR AT STATING MY CONCERNS AND MY ISSUE I AM HAVING. BELIEVE IT OR. IT I NOTICE THE SMELL THE SAME DAY I DRIVE IT OFF THE LOT. TOOK THE VEHICLE BACK THE NEXT DAY FOR THEM TO TELL ME IT WAS NORMAL BECAUSE OF THE CHEMICALS THEY USE IN THE ENGINE. I DON'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT CARS SO I TOOK THEIR WOOD FOR IT.

Summary of Complaint

THE VEHICLE HAS A STRONG EXHAUST SMELL (SULFUR, ROTTEN EGG, IMPROPERLY BURNED FUEL, ETC) COMING INTO THE CABIN OF THE VEHICLE WHEN GOING UPHILL, FAST ACCELERATION OR PASSING A VEHICLE. I HAVE CARRIED THE VEHICLE TO THE FORD DEALER AND REPORTED THIS COMPLAINT SEVERAL TIMES. ON MY LAST COMPLAINT TO THE DEALER, THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT STATED THERE WAS A FACTORY TSB ISSUED FOR THIS PROBLEM. THE DEALER ORDERED THE PARTS FOR THE TSB AN WE CARRIED THE VEHICLE BACK TO THE DEALER AND LEFT IT FOR TWO DAYS FOR THEM TO COMPLETE THE REPAIR. THE ODOR PROBLEMS STILL EXISTS. I HAVE A 4 YEAR OLD GRANDDAUGHTER WITH ASTHMA AND OTHER BREATHING PROBLEMS. I HAVE CARRIED HER TO SCHOOL AND PICKED HER UP EVERYDAY IN THIS VEHICLE FOR THREE YEARS NOW. I WONDER IF HER HEALTH COULD BE AFFECTED BY THIS DEFECT?
