First the ABS light came on. Then a loud noise came from the front. After the auto shop called and informed me that it was all wheel bearing and backing plates went bad and$1500 dollars later I looked into problems on line with Ford Explorer I seen over 42 complaints with the same thing. That is a lot of money seeing as how im still paying of the loan!
