2007 Ford Explorer Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 072007

Explorer 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 0 miles


I purchased my new 2007 Explorer V8 eddie bauer on 06-07-07. I traded in a 2002 same thing. The minute I drove it off the lot I knew there was a transmission problem with it. It wants to surge between first and second gear and when it finally goes in it just slams itself in. Also if you are idling along at a slow speed it acts like you are gently giving it gas as it speeds up and slows down. The back lock on the window wants to pop open a lot also. The dealer has reprogrammed the transmission once and for about a week I thought it was fixed. Then it started all over again with the transmission. The Explorer now sits in my garage for 99.9% of the time. It has 5808.8 miles on it. I got so disgusted with the thing I bought a 2008 Toyota Camry and just love it. I have been a union member all my life and have always bought american products but it seems the american manufactures no longer care or there designers no longer care as some of the foreign manufactures are putting our products to shame. This used to be a proud country but now it is just greed. I believe I have bought my last american car or until they get there act back together. Ford motor you are putting out junk. Get back in the ball game. A very unhappy customer.
