Kelly’s Story

Hi there- Could you call me and help me with an independent engineer. I have a truck with horrible exhaust smell and have definitely become sick from it. I’ve been very sick for the last year and 9 months, which was only 2 months after buying my used truck. I stopped driving it for about 4 months because it was undrivable due to the fumes. I thought it was because I needed to fix the back of my car impacted by an accident from a year ago. But I got the truck back completely fixed and within a half day of driving it started to get sick and then smelled the smell.The body shop said there must be something wrong with the exhaust because he saw nothing from the accident that would cause that smell I was getting. So I happened to google exhaust on ford explorer and saw that it was making people sick! I couldn’t believe it! I’m meeting with a couple of personal injury lawyers this week. My daughter and I have had the same symptoms and I always wondered why…I’ve had probably 15 ambulances, 25 ER’s and probably 100 doctors visits…and then started to get better slowly while not driving that truck…so did my daughter….too coincidental.

Your story is like many others that I have heard since I became poisoned by my 2015 Explorer.
Based on my experiences, let me give you some advise on how to move ahead and ask a few questions
– Have you had your Explorer checked out by Ford ?  Recently ? Please tell me about it
– If you plan on working on this via a lawyer, doing it via lemon laws is the best route. How successful you will be depends on the quality of lemon laws in CA and how many attempts at repair that you have had
– I strongly advise the purchase of a Carbon Monoxide detector. Be sure to get one with a digital readout. The best ones also have a data recording feature. I recommend several in the “What you can Do” section of my site
– You need to keep your AC/Heat out of recirculate mode
Good Luck & try to stay safe

    GLAD THAT KELLY AND ALL OF THE REST OF US WERE ABLE TO SHARE OUR STORIES FOR OTHER FORD EXPLORER OWNERS TO SEE HOW SERIOUS THIS PROBLEM IS. THIS STORY IS EYE OPENING TO ALL OF THE UNSUSPECTING OWNERS OF THESE VEHICLES, WITH CARBON MONOXIDE INSIDE OF THE CABINS, MAKING PEOPLE SICK AND THEY CANNOT FIGURE OUT WHY. FORD SAYS THE VEHICLES ARE SAFE TO DRIVE, WHAT A LIE! THANK YOU SO MUCH STEVE, FOR EVERYTHING YOU ARE DOING!

    Thanks a million, I mean it
    After seeing this, I’m cancelling the purchase of an explorer; just last week, my wife and took one for a test drive, ready to trade in her 2010 Escape on it – guess I’ll keep shopping
