problem #2

Expedition 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 27,900 miles
: the contact stated the driver's side power seat mechanism does not work properly, resulting in driver's inability to view the road. The seat moves up and down, but will not go forward or backward. The dealership determined the mechanism needed to be replaced. Updated 3/17/2006 - right front axle leaked, windshield washers failed. The glass in the driver's side window would not go up. The door locks locked the consumer out of the vehicle. The horn was difficult to locate. The rear tailgate window exploded.

I have had the drive train from the transmission back replaced and still have a vibration thruoughout the vehicle. Along with this it is difficult to stay in your lane while driving. The fix from Ford was to hang a twenty or so pound wieght off the differential. Through the tsb on the veichle print out I was also informed to watch out for the tires spinning on the wheel form 45 - 80 mph (Ford tsb - special service message 11276 under vibrations concerns)
