    2011 Ford Explorer Transmission Problems?

    Last Friday the dealer told me that they would order a brand new transmission for my Explorer. Spoke with them again on Monday and they indicated that it would be ready for me to take home Tuesday evening. Last night they called to say they were having a programming issue and that it wouldn't...

    2011 Ford Explorer Transmission Problems?

    My dealer called today and after replacing a valve and noticing no difference, they ordered a new transmission. If all goes as planned, I will have my Explorer back early next week.

    2011 Ford Explorer Transmission Problems?

    2012 XLT with tow package. According to the service manager it is not a software or program issue. Frustrating to say the least

    2011 Ford Explorer Transmission Problems?

    I took delivery of my 2012 Explorer on Saturday morning. Drove the first 80 miles with absolutely no issues. After sitting in the driveway for a couple of hours my Explorer would experience issues when the transmission reached shift points. Specifically the RPMs would increase, then the...

    Yes, that was the link that wasn't working earlier today. This morning when I used that link it would only generate the 2nd page of the window sticker. I just tried again and that issue no longer exists. Thanks for your help, Cory!

    I am now able to view my window sticker! Using the link that starts with services.forddirect. The other link only shows the second page of the window sticker, which doesn't include the details of MyEx. Ordered: 6/7 Vin Received: 7/21 Build Date: 8/11 (confirmed with window sticker)...

    What's your status?

    I checked for my window sticker this morning using the fordlabels link and after entering my VIN it generated a one page document, but not a window sticker. The document shows IIHS Ratings, my VIN, and an assortment of other numbers. Anybody have any info on this?

    What's your status?

    For those of you with a build date of August 8th - it appears it was the week of August 8th, my Explorer is actually being built August 11th. Hopefully this helps

    Looks like we're in the same boat, Disney. I'll be checking tomorrow morning, but please let me know once you see your window sticker available!

    Any window stickers for those of you with build dates next week? My build date was scheduled for August 8th and no window sticker yet.

    What's your status?

    I spoke to my dealer on Friday and received a build date and ETA. Order placed: 6/7 VIN received: 7/21 Build Date: 8/8 ETA: Week of 8/15 This seems like a quick turnaround from build to arrival. Hopefully I don't have the issues others experienced of sitting in Chicago!

    2012 with Navigation - 6 month waiting time?

    I'm glad to see you're making progress, Border. I placed an order for a 2011 on 6/7 and didn't find out that it would be changed to a 2012 until 6/28. I'm currently waiting on a VIN. The dealer seems uninformed and I've gathered more information reading these forums than working with the dealer.

    2012MY Orders

    I ordered a 2011 from my dealer on 6/7. Found out three weeks later that it would instead be a 2012 and I'm still waiting on a VIN.

    Cannot order 2011, must order 2012

    Just heard from the dealer that the order went through to Ford, but has not yet scheduled to be built. The dealer informed me that the VIN will not be available until the build is scheduled. Could I obtain an order number yet?

    Cannot order 2011, must order 2012

    Thanks for your help, Cory! Will the dealer definitely have an order number available after today, or is that dependent upon Ford accepting the order?

    Cannot order 2011, must order 2012

    Hey everybody I'm new to the forum and this is my first post. I ordered a 2011 XLT on 6/7. After seeing the issues with tuxedo black online I called the dealership today. The dealer informed me that I would be getting a '12 and that they had submitted the order but needed to see if it was...
