Jesse’s Story

I wish I had put two and two together years ago. My 2014 Explorer had always been a decent vehicle, but there was always something strange about it; my son would get nauseous without exception. He threw up numerous times from car sickness, but ONLY FROM THIS VEHICLE. He’s never been car sick in another vehicle. The really scary part of my story is the accident that I had. Two years ago I was nearing my office after a long commute and I “woke up” in the middle of an intersection with cars coming at me [...]

John’s Story

I have had my Explorer for approximately one year and I am concerned with the exhaust fumes cabin order within during heavy acceleration. Has been to the dealer service department in my area twice now due to these concerns. The first time was under my Felician asking them to see if there was a leak of some sort hitting the exhaust manifold or pipes. Second was a field service bulletin that Ford put out which involved checking the rear of the car for leaks, replacing drain plugs in the rear hatch, and reprogramming the climate control [...]

Bert’s Story

I purchased my explorer on November 27, 2017 and was ecstatic. The thing was awesome, until… About mid January I started getting headaches and fatigue. I thought it was just part of life and the stress that comes with it. But it kept being persistent and getting worse. My wife kept asking if things were ok because my personality was changing. It was scary. I purchased a CO detector without a digital readout in late February and I installed it on March 8. On March 12 it went off on my way to work. I had [...]

Charlie’s story

I just had a 2013 Explorer Limited inspected by a local dealership because I was thinking of buying it…the dealership informed me that they had performed the "recall" for carbon monoxide. When I asked them to elaborate, they said they had replaced and resealed the plugs under the vehicle and reprogramed the HVAC system. I did some research…I have owned 9 Fords and am shocked by Ford's response to this issue…so I called the Ford Hotline and they played dumb. I am seriously reconsidering buying this vehicle and have ordered a carbon monoxide detector to measure [...]

Dina’s Story

I bought my Ford Explorer last year and I did not smell the exhaust until driving it for a couple of months. Now I smell it any time I accelerate hard or the RPMs go above 3,000. I have driven it on trips that consist of high speeds such as 75 to 80mph for a few hours and when we got there, my kids were complaining of being sick to their stomach and just not feeling well. It is ridiculous that I can't drive my vehicle comfortably and I constantly have to roll my windows down [...]

Azrin’s Story

I just came to read about your stories and i am truly shocked. I’m just about finalizing a deal to buy a used 2015 ford explorer, and now i am worried. Have you tested other ford explorer that doesnt have this problem? Steve's Comment Interesting question I only hear from people when they have problems but would give you the following advice The design of the complete exhaust system from exhaust manifold through to the tips is bad and is subject to leakage. That is part one. Part two is that there are numerous places that [...]

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 [...]

Chris’ Story

Still CO after repairs Message: Hello. I still have CO levels registering in my car up to 5 PPM on short trips. May be more on a long trip but haven't been on a long trip. Do you have an Independent engineer in the Charleston area I can use at no cost to inspect it? Thanks, Chris   Steve's Comments Thanks for the note. I have a few thoughts - I'd like to know more about your story. How many times have you had your Explorer "repaired" by Ford. Have you had it inspected/repaired as a [...]
