Spare tire is no good. I had to use my spare tire for the first time 2 weeks ago, and the rim is bad. I could only travel 20 mph before it started shaking and making noises. I called stevens Ford in patchogue, NY and was told that my vehicle was out of warranty. This was the first and only time I had to use it.

I have had to get three valve stems on my 2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac replaced within 3 days. They were cracked and rotted. 2007"??? cracked and rotted?". at first I thought someone was cutting my valve stems on purpose. When the tire guy pulled to remove the old valve stem they split in half with hardly any force exerted on them. Now I find out that Ford knows about this problem.. unreal

On 12/27/2008 went across rr tracks at 25 mph had a frt tire blowout. Upon further inspection discovered tire splitting apart on the inside wall of all four tires near the rim. Out of site of a visual inspection unless tire is off. 23,000 miles on 07 Ford spt track. Way too soon to have to replace all four tires. Also believe this is a tire defect and could have been much more serious if I had been traveling at higher rate of speed. Took tires to Ford dealer and Goodyear no help or very much concern. Im concerned that there are other drivers out there with these tires and they should be notified of the splits that are occurring and have their tires inspected asap before someone gets hurt or worse. If other drivers tires are splitting like mind did then the tires should be replaced asap. And I should be compensated for having to purchase 4 brand new tires so soon. I also have kept the tires as proof of my complaint. Thank you

Explorer Sport Trac 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 36,400 miles
2007 sporttrac, started downshifting very rough when coming to a stop, took to freeport, il dealer who adjusted parts of the transmission, this made the downshifting much better for a few months, it is back now and worse than ever. You have to have your foot hard on the brake and don't stop very close to any vehicle or property in front of you. I learned hard way last week and hit a cement post with the front bumper, I had actually stopped maybe 6 inches from the post but the surge after stopped propelled me maybe 7-8", it is a very very dangerous situation. I went back to the dealer about a month ago and said the surge when downshifing was somewhat slightly back again, but my main concern then was that the car seemed like it was in 4 wheel drive continually, this was determined due to the sound and whining of gears, I was not in 4 wheel drive but it sounded like it, I bought new tires thinking as the dealer service person said, it might be the tires, it wasn't. now I have the sound and the dangerous surge. I'm going back to the dealer with appointment tomorrow. As I have read other complaints on the same downshift surge problem there definitely should be a recall for the defect issued by Ford. This is my first complaint filing so don't know what else to say?
