I have a 2007 Ford Expedition el. I lease a 4000 sq. Ft. garage where I'm working to open my own dealership. On the morning of February 18, 2010 around 3am the Expedition caught on fire all by itself. It started on the engine and worked its way back until the firefighters arrived and were able to put it down in a timely manner. The Expedition is a total loss. The 2008 F350 crewcab dually I had parked next to it had some damage to the driver side and also extensive damage to the ceiling and insulation of the building. The police crime scene investigator mentioned right off the bet that these cars have a cruise control recall and it is common to many of them to catch on fire all by itself. I did some research online and found two major problem with these cars involving the risk of fire: A recall for the fuel rail assembly and a problem with the speed control deactivation switch being powered at all time and resulting in fire under certain conditions. Since my lease started on February 1st and I'm in the process of opening and registering the business, I had no insurance all the time. The insurance of the garage's owner will cover the damage on the building but none of my car and truck damage. On top of loosing my car, my business will be shut down for about two to four weeks until the insurance get all paperwork and claim settled and owner gets the place all fixed up. All that's left for me is to find a way of getting Ford to acknowledge and take responsibility for the default vehicle - not only mine, but the tens of thousands - they have driving on the streets putting at risk many homes and lives. That is pretty scary taking into consideration that there's many people that lost everything due to this fire and I was lucky enough not to loose everything I had.

Expedition 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,000 miles
I had purchased a 2007 Ford Expedition el and have had multiple problems with being able to go in reverse while facing down on any kind of grade. I also have problems with the vehicle accelaration while coming from a stop into traffice. Myself along with my two small children will no longer drive the vehicle. We were very close to being hit twice because of the defect in this Ford vehicle. I had submitted for lemon law and so far I have not received my answer from arbitration. I can tell you that Ford is covering this up because I know of serveral persons and businesses that have the same issues and Ford stated that there are no issues. While on the phone with the Ford representative in the arbitration they only showed a few visits to the dealership and told me that the ones that I received from the dealership were false. What a crock. I will make a complaint everywhere that I can before this vehicle kills someone. At this point I went and bought another vehicle and am stuck paying for two now that the one just sits and we refuse to drive it. My children are afraid to even drive in it because it actually goes in forward while in reverse also.
