    Saying goodbye

    Well she didn't have a phone with her and she says she watched and heard it call 911 so I don't know what to tell you. Perhaps it synced up with someones phone in the other car? Regardless, it did it's job. Anyway, she now has a Kia Sorento and says she prefers it over the Explorer. I find the...

    Saying goodbye

    Hi everyone! It's been a while since I posted. My wife got in an accident last week and my 2011 Ex is totalled. I know that most people complain about MFT but I have never had any problems with it. In fact I am writing to tell about how great it has done. When the accident happened, the MFT...

    Water Leak

    Sorry for taking so long to get back to you. I fixed the leak myself by passing silicone on the grommet and reinserting it back in the hole. So far so good. It is a common problem but has many causes, and you can even find videos on youtube showing all the leaks that are known on the Explorers...

    Water Leak

    Possible, but with everyone having leaks one never knows until it's found. My 2011 just turned 6 years old May 25th. We have never had the leak problem until two days ago. My wife came to me cursing because water was running down the seat belt by the rear hatch on the drivers side during a heavy...

    Bad or Burnt Exhaust smell in cabin during hard acceleration.

    Maybe now that the "smell" has almost killed a police officer, something might get done about this for those of you that have the problem. The Henderson police dept had complained about the smell to Ford ever since getting their P.I.'s. These are 2016 models. My 2011 still does not have this...

    I Got Lucky The Second Time...The Ford Store San Leandro, CA

    Totally agree with that statement. I have seen terrible dealerships and some great dealerships. The terrible ones don't last very long before closing the doors. That being said, the OP here got royally screwed on that repair job.

    Just WOW Ford....

    The same goes for other brands as well. It's not about longevity with the manufactures anymore - it's about how much dollars they can squeeze out of you.

    Opinions are like a-holes.....everybody has one....lol! Your manual should have the service guidelines as when to change fluids. If you want folks personal opinions, as for mine, I have never changed brake fluid on any vehicle I have ever owned unless I had to change a master cylinder and that...

    Looking at a used 2013 Sport

    Same as 613GT500 stated plus I would try to find out why the original owner got rid of it so soon. I also find that the asking price is kind of high, but hopefully you can work a deal with the dealership that you both are comfortable with. Good Luck!

    No Emblems?

    Welcome to the forum! I don't think your Explorer came from the factory without the emblems, but never know. There are a lot of people that remove the emblems/badges for what ever reason. Worst case is that your Explorer was previously rear ended and the place that repaired it did not put...

    purchasing a 2016, rebate and pricing question

    Been here 2 years and you finally let yourself be known!! lol. Good to hear from you. I have heard of the "employee pricing plan" that Ford promotes every now and then but that usually only happens when sales are really sluggish. It's not much different than the xplan pricing and supposedly...

    2012 Explorer Security System

    First off, Welcome to the Forum. Did they really remove the windshield with a sawsall?:eek: I just can not picture anybody actually doing that. I had the windshield on my 2011 replaced and they sure didn't use a sawsall. The first thing I would have done was call that glass company up and get...

    Touch Up Paint Mismatch

    You seem all bent on solely blaming Ford/Motorcraft for your ebay purchase. Sorry, but YOU are the one that isn't understanding what everyone has been telling you. I'll repeat - Just because it says "Motorcraft" on the bottle doesn't mean that it's the real deal inside the bottle. There are lots...

    Touch Up Paint Mismatch

    Just because it says "Motorcraft" on the bottle doesn't mean that it's the real deal inside the bottle. There are lots of known scammers on ebay selling knockoff products under the guise of the real thing. You did say you got it from ebay. Try some paint from a different source and see if it...

    Battery Life

    The OEM battery that was in my Ex was a BH-65-HH which is a 420 cca type 65 battery. Some Explorers have a BXL 59 which is a 540 cca battery. I have no idea why all the different batteries, but I know what was and now is in my Explorer.
