      Thanks, i see that now. Problem is, i still don't know what disabling the door switches does, and when. Suppose they need to spell it out for guys like me.....

      Well you're not alone Pete. Since I'm the only one in the household other than the dogs, I never sit in the second row. I'll have to check that out next time. Happy Easter.

      We already have 2 new parts waiting to get installed. Scuff marks on the black plastic wheel well trim and the foglamp bezel right out of the factory. Both DS
      I now noticed a crack in the collision warning light plastic cover (red light on the dash), and have it ordered. When it's in, all 3 parts will be replaced. Does nobody inspect parts before or after assembly? Or does nobody give a damn because Chicago is on O.T. and everything goes out the door to let the customers and dealers deal with it.
      Fit/finish is somewhat better than the 2015 MKX (fit/finish was bad and engine work at 5000 km) we traded, but not even close compared to German brands i looked at, and which ford and Lincoln has compared itself to in the past. Wishful thinking....
      Cabin is noisier than I'm used to, which could very well be the cheap Hankook Tires. The sort of buffeting effect with the windows shut is a first for me also.
      It does drive well and i do like the steering. All in all, I'm glad it's my wife's vehicle and not mine.
      Seen a fresh off the truck EX-XLT on the lot with Michelin Tires yesterday and found myself scratching my head....

      Interesting thread. Cool about the green stickers. I ended up buying mine off a lot instead of ordering one. Had 111km on it. Was fine with that. Car works and wasn't dinged, so good enough for me.

      As for switch inhibit, mine's on by default. No info in Explorer manual, but the Fusion manual has this:

      Switch Inhibitor (p 52)
      When you electronically lock your vehicle, the power door lock switch will no longer operate after 20 seconds. You must unlock your vehicle with the remote control or keyless keypad, or switch the ignition on, to restore function to these switches. This feature can be switched on or off in the information display. See General Information (page 84).


      Still not totally clear to me what that means. There are so many ways to lock and unlock this car, hard to know what they mean, exactly. I have a toddler, and there's a philips key on the rear doors that prevents the door from opening on the inside. One on each side, and of course, there's a driver button that prevents them from rolling the windows up and down and up and down and up and down...
