2007 Ford Explorer Owner Comments

problem #2

  • 37,000 miles


We have a 2007 Ford Explorer. The radiator started leaking at just over 36,000 miles. Upon researching the issue, we found out that this is an ongoing problem with the Ford Explorer and Ford will not do anything about it. Ford needs to step up to the plate and fix the radiators, since there is a flaw issue with them. Ford needs to be made to replace the defective radiators and correct the problem so it does not continue to happen.

Explorer 6-cyl

  • 50,000 miles
Radiator starting seeping fluid from right top seam (aluminum-plastic) around 50,000 miles for no reason; research on internet shows numerous complaints with the 2006-2007 models with the V6 engine. Finally at 54000 miles I am going to replace the unit as the leak has gotten worse and I'm afraid of complete equipment failure on the road traveling. This is a recurring problem with many Explorer owners with some having to replace there radiator three times. One site I looked at for purchase gave a part number for the 2006 models and noted that they could no longer honor a warranty due to a defect in the Ford mounting system for the radiator. A class action lawsuit has been mentioned on the internet toward Ford for not stepping up to the plate and addressing this defect issue. Please look into this and don't sweep it under the rug. My husband and I have (7) Ford vehicles in the yard; that is all he has ever owned for 35 years. Radiators just don't start leaking - Ford has a problem that needs to be brought forward.
