Had the vehicle approx 2 1/2 yrs and has 64,000 miles. Vehicle slipped out of gear entering the driveway and then the 4x4 low light came on. The vehicle is now in the shop waiting for the OK to replace the transmission. I'm not really hot yet, but I will be!~

"how long the car has been doing that?" and i said "god damit since 67899 miles", and they said "we will have to keep the car in for 2 weeks." i had to beg for 1 week rental car service and when i came back to pick up over 100 miles it is still flashing. so ford hears what i got for you a big old F*CK YOU NEVER AGIAN IF I BUY ANOTHER FORD IT WILL BE A MUSTANG NOT A EXPLOER WELL IN MY WORDS EXPLORDER
