    2011 - 2018 Explorer Power Steering Issue

    Power Steering lost while driving Lost power steering while driving and the steering wheel locked right up. couldn't even pull over. Good thing we were comming to a stop and didn't have to turn to avoid anything. We already had it in for the recall in August, but whatever they did, either...

    Water Leak

    Don’t mean to stoke the fire – but you’re being played by the dealer. Unless the Dealer Rep you’ve been talking to was just hired, then maybe he doesn’t know. But I highly doubt it, they usually have years experience. This issue has been documented for 3 years and it is in their data base...

    Water Leak

    Ted22 You're absolutley correct. The Ford Engineers and Chicago assembly workers are too Lazy & Incompetent at fixing a water leak after knowing about this for 2 Years. Every person that asks me about my Explorer, the first thing I tell them is that it Leaks, it Leaks and it Leaks. Any by...

    Water Leak

    To All This I believe is a major safety issue and quite embarrasing that Ford doesn't want to address it. Maybe because it would be a major recall issue and cost $millions$. Think about what water does to metal. It's corrosive. In most of these posts, water was entering the 3rd row seat...

    Water Leak

    Crystal We're tired of going to the Dealers because 1) They can't find the leak the first try. 2) They Don't fix it right the 2nd time. 3) They don't put the vehicle back together correctly after tearing it apart. 4) It should have been corrected 2 year ago. Stop telling us to go to the...

    Water Leak

    Peter Just because your vehicel doesn't leak, there are many others that do. 60% of the Explorers that I have looked at, either on the Ford PD lot, or dealer lot (when I took my vehicle in for the 2nd time) leaked. Most owners don't have passengers sitting in the 3rd row when it raining, so...

    Water Leak

    This is embarrasing. Ford Body Engineering knew abouth this issue in 2011. I know, because I personally talked to them about this when my Exp leaked. Not only that, but I showed them one of their test vehicles was leaking in thier parking lot. Ford Body Engineering also told me that the...

    Water Leak

    Your dealer is not being truthful. All the information about the Water Leak is located in the Ford Service Data Base. You can even contact the PVT Manager at Chicago Assembly Plant and they will tell you they are aware of the issue. Below is the Repair Order from Sept 28th, 2011. That I pulled...

    Water Leak

    Great Vidoe - That is exactly how my leak looks like. Going into dealer this morning for the 3rd time to get fixed. Just think of how many other owners have this problem but are not aware because they don't use the 3rd row.

    Water Leak

    I do have the dual moon roof. The first fix, they stated that the seam was cracked at the roof and side panel. They fixed it with a type of epoxy. Obviously, they didn't check the whole vehicle. The dealer and I are going to have a nice discussion about what they're going to do for me.

    Water Leak

    No they wern't. That was my biggest concern the first time when they tore the interior appart. When i got it back, they were loose on both sides of the vehicle. The vehicle is never the same when it's reassembled outside the factory. This may fall under the MIchigan Lemon Law. In the...

    Big problem with having power liftgate

    Water Leak It may have not been your 2 year old leaving the power lift gate open. I just had mine in service for 2 weeks because of a cracked seal where the roof and rear side panel join. Every time it rained, water would leak down the 3rd row seat belt, completely soaking the rear area...

    Tin Roof Rain noise.

    Add another 2011 owner to the wait list. I thought it was just my hearing but the rain noise sounds like I'm sitting in a tin can. Maybe the fix will be in by the time they figure out where the water is leaking into my vehicle. When they take my headliner off to fix the interior water leak...

    Water Leak

    The dealer had my vehicle for a week and could not find the problem. They tried hosing it with water and taking it to a car wash and still could not find the leak. When it did finally rain, they left the car out but had it parked facing down hill. The water drained off the front of the vehicle...

    Water Leak

    I purchase a 2011 Limited 4WD Explorer in July. I was recently on vacation this past weekend and encountered a lot of rain. When my 8 year old sat in the 3rd row and buckled the seatbelt, water started streaming down the webbing and I also noticed water on the speaker grill. This has happened...
