    Oil Found In Air Filter

    Oil blow by? I just changed the oil & filter (switched to Mobil 1 full synthetic) and air filter in my wife's 2012 Limited Edition Explorer. As I removed the elbow prior to the air cleaner box, there was oil dripping out of it. I wiped it out & will keep an eye on it. Anyone else heard of this...

    Problems with Gas Fill

    My wife's 2012 Limited just started doing the same thing. I thought she was crazy at first, until we went to refuel. Turns out, she was correct. Now, I have to deal with my local dealer again......just can't win!!!:(

    first snow driving

    If we had decided to buy a 4wd, I still would have spent the money on dedicated snow tires. The 20" tires that come on the Limited just wouldn't cut the snow like our Blizzacks!

    Power Liftgate

    We were having the same type of problem with the wife's "12 limited. Cold or warm weather, hatch would pop open approximately 1-2 inches then close. I looked at the latch and it appeared the catch (hoop) was out of alignment. So, with the help of a piece of wood & a hammer, I bent the hoop...

    Winter Tire and Wheel Recommendations

    Has anyone had problems changing from the 20" tires on a Limited to 17" or 18" snow tires? I am looking for problems with antilock brakes, onboard computer, etc. This is for a 2012 Limited front wheel drive. :)

    Tire sizes

    I'm looking for info. concerning snow tires for the wife's 2012 FWD Explorer Limited. Is there a reason that I can't run an 18 inch snow tire/wheel package in place of the 20 inch tire/wheels that came on the vehicle on delivery. I am worried about computer & sensor issues. Also, I am looking...

    From day ordered to day of delivery to my dealer was 8 weeks (exactly the time they quoted me) :wavey:
