CarComplaints.com Notes: The NHTSA's complaint data shows potentially scary power steering problems with the 2011 Ford Explorer.

The NHTSA complaints are pretty serious - owners report the power steering cuts out while driving. The NHTSA opened an investigation in June 2012 but hasn't reached a decision about a recall yet. In the meantime, buyers beware.

It's too bad because the 2009 & 2010 Ford Explorer are solid, trouble-free model years.

Intermittent quite loud noise (rattle or vibration) that originates from base of passenger side pillar on windshield. Only occurs at highway speed (100km/hour; 60mph or above) when driving in windy (mainly crosswind) conditions. Could not reproduce sound for Dealer, but attempt was made with no wind blowing; Dealer is not keen to fix problem.
