The Forum is already filled with threads of new discoveries after members have had their vehicle. Quite a few are due to not reading the Owner's Manual when the vehicle was initially received.........Perhaps we should start a new thread on the driving experience and anything people discover as they get more familiar with their new SUV's. Thoughts?
Congratulations JethroXP and best of luck with it.
My Explorer Platinum arrived at the Elizabeth New Jersey rail yard on October 30 and my salesman was hoping to have the Explorer delivered to me on either this Tuesday or Wednesday but today he called me to tell me that the reason he has not call me to pick up the car is because the Explorer still at the rail yard because there is around 200+ cars in front of my Explorer Platinum waiting to be pick up before it can be deliver to the dealer. Now I know why sometimes we can't understand why we tracked this vehicles, see that the rail car has arrived at its destination and then wonder what it's taking the dealer so long to have them delivered to US.
If I have waited this long since I placed my order on August 15,2015 then a few more weeks (if it takes that long) it not going to kill me , lol. I know it is worth the wait.
Well I got an ETA of 11/10. Build on 10/19. Dealer told me it had shipped and arrived in Portland this past weekend and now it's on a hold?!?! I'm confused and a little frustrated.
I just found out my car is on a hold. At the rail yard. getting real frustrated.
I finally picked up my platinum yesterday. It came in Monday all shiny and detailed (build date of 10/24) but had a couple paint chips on door and apparently I didn't notice but the wheel was scratched. Dealership repainted door and replaced wheel. So Friday was the exciting day! First off, it is FUN to drive! Great pickup, lots of new features to learn. The voice command option works wonderfully, stereo sounds awesome. Yes, the seats are smaller (than my Yukon), but they feel sportier, just like the engine. I'm having a blast in the new vehicle. There are so many cool features on this vehicle, I can't wait to drive it again today. I still have to figure out the garage door opener, so that is first on the list today.
