Ford Explorer - poor design and quality
By TKenn on

Vehicle

2008 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

1. Roll-over alarm goes off at 20 mph on straight road. Dealership said it was a "short" in the system. 2. Both Vanity Mirror covers broke off allowing the light to stay on and drain battery. Dealership replaced with visors having cuts in the fabric. 3. Tail light assembly missing both attaching screws. 4. Eyelash (decorative trim at wheel area) pulling away from body. 5. Oil changed - but the oil indicator was not reset. Found out the oil indicator only tracks mileage and time - not actual oil life. Second Explorer - same visor problem. Paint failure. Technicians failed to reset oil indicator.

Suggested Improvements

Ford needs to use same dashboard configuration - waste of training, inventory and design.
