I have replaced TWO transmissions in the past 2 years--there are 2 cracks on the rear panel door--I have seen soo many other vehicles(Ford Explorers) with the same cracks!! WHAT IS FORD DOING ABOUT THIS..I CALLED AND COMPLAINED TO FORD AND THEY SAID THEY HAVE NO RECALLS OR ISSUES ON THIS.[violative content deleted]

I have the same problem with both the transmission and lift gate. Getting ready to replace tranny with 127k and mechanic says this is known problem with these. Woud you be interested in being part of class action lawsuit if I can get one filed in my state?
