Summary of Complaint

WHY HAS THERE NOT BEEN AN UPDATED RECALL ON THE 2014 EXPLORER ON LOSING ITS POWER STEERING? I JUST TURNED MY VEHICLE ON TO AUTONATION FORD IN BURLESON, TX TO GET THE REAR TOW LINK RECALL REPAIRED AND THE ASSOCIATE TOLD ME THE POWER STEERING WAS NOT A CAUSE IN THE RECALL AND THAT IT WAS SOMETHING WE WOULD HAVE TO PAY TO HAVE FIXED. THIS IS NOT HAPPENING DUE TO FAILURE TO MAINTENANCE OR DUE TO LACK OF TAKING CARE OF THE VEHICLE. THIS IS A MANUFACTURING ISSUE AND THE HISTORY PROVES IT! THERE WAS A RECALL ON THE 2011-2013 MODEL FOR THIS BUT NOW THAT IT IS CONTINUING, IT IS NOW THE OWNERS RESPONSIBILITY? THIS EFFECTS THE DRIVING AND IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS. YOU HAVE LOW TURNING RADIUS, IT DISENGAGES ALL THE ADVANCED DRIVING MODES, IT ALSO EFFECTS THE BLINKERS. YOU HAVE TO HOLD THE BLINKER DOWN FOR IT TO STAY ON, YOU CANT JUST CLICK THE LEVER AND IT STAYS IN THE BLINKING MODE LIKE IT IS SUPPOSED TOO. IF YOU PUT CRUISE CONTROL ON, THE STEERING CAN LOCK UP AND YOU LITERALLY HAVE TO JERK IT TO GET IT OUT OUT AND BE ABLE TO TURN OR EVEN SWERVE. FORD NEEDS TO TAKE CARE OF THIS BECAUSE YOU CAN SEE BY ALL THE COMPLAINTS AND HISTORY OR REOCCURRENCE, THIS IS A MANUFACTURING DEFECT AND NOT A OWNER ISSUE. IF FORD DOES NOT TAKE CARE OF THIS ISSUE FOR US AND EVEN THE THOUGHT OF IT BEING A CHARGEABLE SERVICE, I WILL HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO THIS TO A HIGHER DEMAND TO GET HELP AND TO BRING THIS TO THE ATTENTION TO THE ONES THAT NEED ACT. THIS IS UNSAFE TO ME AND MY FAMILY AS WELL AS ALL THE OTHER EXPLORER OWNERS. THE MANUFACTURING DEFECT NEEDS TO BE FIXED OR OFFER SOME SORT OF SOLUTION FOR THE SAFETY OF THIS VEHICLE.

Summary of Complaint

ON FEBRUARY 18, 2020, AS I WAS DRIVING ON THE INTERSTATE, A WARNING APPEARED ON THE DASHBOARD THAT READ 'STEERING FAULT SERVICE NOW'. WHEN I EXITED THE INTERSTATE AND FOUND A SAFE PLACE TO PARK TWO WARNINGS APPEARED ON THE DASHBOARD THAT READ 'STEERING LOSS STOP SAFELY' AND 'SERVICE ADVANCE TRAC'. ONCE I WAS STOPPED THE STEERING COMPLETELY FAILED. SEEMS TO BE AN ONGOING ISSUE WITH THE EXPLORER EVEN AFTER THE 2011-13 RECALL.

Summary of Complaint

WINDSHIELD MOLDING ON BOTH SIDES HAS JUST BLOWN OFF WHILE I AM DRIVING ON THE FREEWAY AND THE DRIVER SIDE PASSENGER DOOR MOLDING HAS ALSO FLOWN OFF WHILE DRIVE IN THE CANYON. I HAVE HAD ALL THREES PANELS BLOW OFF WHILE I WAS DRIVE WITH IN 3 MONTHS AND I AM SO MAD ABOUT IT BECAUSE THEY ARE SO EXPENSIVE TO REPLACE. NOT ONLY ARE THEY EXPENSIVE IF IT RAINS IT IS GOING TO RAIN STRAIGHT INTO MY CAR THIS IS A HORRIBLE HAZARDOUS PROBLEM THAT NEEDS TO BE FIXED. I AM LUCKY THAT ONE OF THOSE PANELS DIDNT HIT SOMEONE ELSES CAR AND CAUSE DAMAGE OR WORSE BECAUSE THOSE ARE BIG THICK MOLDING THAT COULD REALLY CAUSE MAJOR DAMAGE TO SOMEONE ELSE AND THEIR VEHICLE. I HAVE HAD OTHER FORD VEHICLES AND I BOUGHT THIS ONE REALLY EXCITED AND HAS BEEN NOTHING BUT DISAPPOINTING. SO LONG STORY SHORT 3 DIFFERENT PANELS/MOLDING FLEW OFF MY CAR IN THE CANYON OR FREEWAY ON 3 DIFFERENT OCCASIONS AND IT IS SO DANGEROUS.

Summary of Complaint

MY HUSBAND AND I WERE DRIVING HOME FROM MYRTLE BEACH AND THE STEERING WHEEL STARTED TO BECOME STIFF. WE PULLED OVER INTO A HOTEL PARKING LOT TO SEE WHAT THE ISSUE WAS BUT COULDN'T FIND ANYTHING UNUSUAL. I PROCEEDED TO START THE CAR AND THE DASH READ 'STEERING LOSS'...'SERVICE ADVANCE TRAC'. I HAD TO GET TOWED TO FORD, WHICH THANK GOD WAS ONLY 2MILES AWAY.. WE WERE TOLD THAT THE POWER STEERING HAD DIED SUDDENLY AND THAT IT JUST HAPPENS SOMETIMES. THE TOTAL WAS $1771. I'M SOOO DISAPPOINTED WITH GORD. I'VE ONLY HAD THE TRUCK FOR A LITTLE OVER A YEAR AND I'VE ONLY PUT 23,000 ON IT SINCE I BOUGHT IT PREOWNED WITH 43,000...

Summary of Complaint

WE ARE EXPERIENCING ABNORMAL AND EXTENSIVE EXHAUST FUMES IN THE CAB. WE HAD A LOCAL DEALER PERFORM THE NO CHARGE SERVICE OFFER BY FORD TO SEAL THE CABIN AND REPROGRAM THE AIR CONDITIONER BUT WE SOON REALIZED THIS DID NOT RESOLVE THE ISSUE. WE SCHEDULED TO HAVE THE VEHICLE INSPECTED AGAIN. WE RECEIVED A MESSAGE (WE HAVE A RECORDING) FROM THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT MANAGER THAT THERE WAS DEFINITELY AN ISSUE OF EXHAUST BEING PULLED INTO THE CABIN THAT THEY COULD NOT EXPLAIN. THEY SAID THEY WOULD CALL FORD FOR DIRECTION. THEY THEN CONTACTED US TO SAY THAT FORD TOLD THEM THIS IS NORMAL WHICH IS A CLEAR CONTRADICTION THAT IS HARD TO ACCEPT AS A CONCLUSION. MY WIFE WILL NO LONGER RIDE IN THE VEHICLE DUE TO THE SERIOUS AFFECTS FROM THE INTENSE FUMES DURING ACCELERATION. SHOULD I SEEK LEGAL REPRESENTATION? THERE IS A DEFINITE DISCREPANCY IN THE RESPONSE FROM THE TWO PARTIES.

Summary of Complaint

MY FORD EXPLORER HAS SIGNIFICANT EXHAUST SMELL IN THE VEHICLE AT TIMES, USUALLY AFTER I HAVE KICKED IT DOWN INTO PASSING GEAR, SUCH AS IN CLIMBING HILLS. WHEN I HAD IT IN FOR SERVICE, I ASKED THE DEALER I BOUGHT IT FROM TO TRY TO IDENTIFY WHAT IS CAUSING IT AND THEY CLAIMED THEY COULD NOT DISCERN ANY ODOR. I HAVE SINCE LEARNED OF THE TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETINS THAT HAVE BEEN PUSHED OUT BY FORD FOR MY VERY PROBLEM AND HAVE ALSO LEARNED THAT THERE IS NO INDICATION ANY OF THEIR EFFORTS TO FIX THE PROBLEM ARE ACTUALLY WORKING. I CANNOT AFFORD TO PAY FORD FOR EASTER EGG HUNTS, SO I AND MY FAMILY ARE WAITING FOR A RECALL. IN THE MEANWHILE, WE ARE DRIVING THE VEHICLE WITH THE WINDOWS DOWN. WE HAVE BEEN CONTACTED BY ONE LAW FIRM SO FAR THAT IS INVOLVED IN A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT OVER THIS ISSUE. WE WOULD RATHER HAVE FORD FIX THE PROBLEM. THE PROBLEM WAS INITIALLY NOTICED JUST AFTER WE BOUGHT IT, BUT WE THOUGHT IT WAS DUE TO SOMETHING ON THE ENGINE THAT WOULD BURN OFF IN TIME. THE PROBLEM HAS CONTINUED THE ENTIRE TIME WE HAVE HAD THE VEHICLE. THE PROBLEM DOESN'T SEEM DIRECTLY RELATED TO SPEED OF TRAVEL.

Summary of Complaint

WE HAVE A 2014 FORD EXPLORER THAT HAS A SMELL INSIDE WHILE ACCELERATING. WE HAVE TAKEN IT TO THE DEALER TO HAVE THE PROBLEM CORRECTED. OUR CONCERN IS THAT EXHAUST HAS BEEN COMING INTO THE VEHICLE. WE AREN'T SURE IF THE CURRENT SOLUTIONS IN PLACE TO FIX THE VEHICLE ARE ENOUGH. WELL KNOWING AND OUR FAMILY IS GETTING SICK FROM THIS CURRENT ISSUE WE JUST AREN'T SURE WHAT WE'RE BREATHING INSIDE THE VEHICLE IS SAFE. THE SMELL COMES WHEN YOU ACCELERATE HARD EITHER TOWING OR MERGING ONTO THE HIGHWAY OR EVEN FROM A RED LIGHT. THE SMELL IS A SULFUR SMELL OR ROTTEN EGG SMELL THAT SEEMS TO DISSIPATE QUICKLY BUT IS NOTICEABLE.
