2001 Ford Explorer Owner Comments

My Explorer has an issue that if it has 5 gallons of gas or is 50 miles to empty and I park it, it will not turn back on, unless I face the nose of the car uphill. If the nose of the car is level or facing down hill the ca will not turn back on once it is off. I have been told by towing sites that they get that a lot with my make car.

I also notice that in a lot of Ford Explorers the arm rest of the car always rips or crack and the damage gets bigger.
