Keep having issues

by Claire F from New York NY | January 11, 2021

Every 1-2 weeks car won’t start and lights will blink. Gets going after 2-15mn. Brought it 6x to the dealership where their computer acknowledges the issues and attempts to fix it but has yet to be successful. Gas opening makes the pump stop several times before tank is full (apparently a known issue that Ford is working on). Driver seat won’t fully go all the way back. Fixed once, just happened again. Previous Explorer was great, this one will make me buy another brand next.

Recently Purchased, So Far Good

Bought a '20 Ford Explorer ST. 400 horse, 3.0 twin turbo V6. Wanted the performance and styling of this model. So far, I'm not disappointed. Runs and looks great. Still getting comfortable with all of the technology though.

Great SUV

by wizofpr from Parkland, WA | December 30, 2020

Great features, love the Platinum edition. Seat massage, leather interiors, heat/cool seats, plenty plugs for my grandkids electronics, heated steering wheel (would love to see the same feature with a cool setting for the steering wheel, that would be awsome), there are more features that I like, but to limit my review I choose these ones.
