The contact owns a 2014 Ford Explorer. While driving 35 mph, an exhaust odor emitted into the vehicle through the front and rear air vents during acceleration. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where the muffler was replaced. The vehicle was repaired; however, the failure recurred. In addition, the instrument panel failed to illuminate while driving 20 mph. The contact coasted the vehicle to the side of the road and the gear shifter seized. The contact restarted the vehicle and drove home. Once the contact arrived at home, the vehicle lost power, the alarm and horn sounded, and the tailgate opened. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where the gear shifter was replaced. The manufacturer was notified of the failures. The approximate failure mileage was 24,191. Updated 05/03/16
