    Bought 2019 Explorer Limited after returning Edge lease, good decision?

    I am pretty sad that I found this forum a few days after signing some papers for a preowned 2019 Explorer Limited. I was leasing a 2019 Edge and had 16 months left, and knew I wanted an Explorer because my teen kids complain about not having enough space in the Edge. I had done some research...

    Speaker Upgrade for 2021 Limited with 12 Speaker B&O System

    I have a 2021 Limited with the 12 Speaker B&O System. Sadly, I liked the Sony system in my 2013 Sport much better. I don't plan on going crazy and I'm only going to replace the front door speakers because I only have it loud when I'm by myself. Does anyone know how much the amp is pushing to...

    11 explorer limited 4WD. Have recently experienced what I think is transmission slippage/shutter at highway speeds when accelerating to pass a vehicle. Description of a hesitation and lunge 3 or 4 times before kicking in to pass, not really a Jenking action. Then last night at a steady 55 mph...

    Hello from New(ish) member, happy new owner

    First off, this forum has been a great to place for me to learn more about Explorers and what comes when buying one. I joined last year when I was thinking about purchasing, did a lot of reading - but not much else, and that's my bad! Fast forward and I ended up with a 2007 Sport Trac 4WD V8 and...

    So I've read all the threads and I can actually see the fuse box. The problem is there is a huge cover going over everything and I cannot physically get my hand into the fuse box. Is this a 2013 thing? It is bolted on so doesn't look very easy to remove. I don't even know the purpose of this...
