problem #1

Feb 242007

Explorer 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 51,500 miles
I was driving down the road & started slowing down as I came into town. I was coasting along and my car stalled out. I didn't even realize it had cut out, I still had steering & brakes but I had to restart my vehicle. I took it back to the dealer (I had just bought it 6 days prior) and asked them to look at it. They worked with the local Ford dealership and came back with "nothing is wrong with it". they said there wasn't even a record of the incident taking place.
