Front axle leaf spring was making a popping noise when vehicle accelerated/ braked or was going over bumps or cracks. Have taken to dealership twice for problem. Mechanic would pack with grease, which was a temporary measure. Manufacturer has been informed of problem.

problem #1

Excursion 4WD

The tire failure was a blowout. The whole sidewall shredded. Firestone said it was a road hazard even though we did not hit anything. Ford would not replace because they don't cover tires. The fuel gauge was replaced twice by the dealer. The first time, the gauge read 1/4 tank left and it was dry. The second time the gauge read 1/4 tank and it was more than 1/2 full. The front stablizer assembly was popping so hard you could hear and feel it. The dealer replaced it. It seems to be popping again but I haven't taken it back in yet. I'm getting tired of taking it in. The rear side window motor was dying so I had it repaired. During repair, they noticed the glued piece that the motor attached to was coming off and had to replace the entire window. When does the lemon clause come into effect"?"( dot number: 008102 tire size: Lt26575R16 )
