problem #3

Mar 022012

Explorer XLT 6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 55,000 miles

First, it's rediculous that this part failed at 55,000 miles. Worse is the fact that Ford seems to no longer make a replacement seat motor. I couldn't find them on line and my mechanic can't find a new one and told me Ford quit making them. We may have to replace the seat moving mechinism with a non-powered one.

THIS MAY BE WHY FORD IS MAKING MONEY. THEY AREN'T MAKING THE PARTS WE NEED. I WON'T BE BUYING ANOTHER FORD!!!!!!! My wife has driven an explorer since 1992 and I drive a Taurus. Never again. When this if fixed I will have spent at least $4,500 in repairs on this vehicle since December 1, 2011.

Explorer Limited 4WD 4.6L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 57,925 miles

I don't know what to say. Every area of my vehicle has been defective. Who is in charge of quality control at the car plant? Horrible. Or is it the engineers who are to blame for producing products that are flawed? More junk is all I gotta say.
