Hi, we just purchased our own Explorer after downsizing from an Expedition. I hate to say it, but I'm having buyers remorse. We've had problems with the Explorer as well. The wind noise happened in ours as well, but we sent it to get fixed (there was a loose flap) and we were told they removed it. We have yet to drive it at full speed because another reason we took it in was because the home screen was blanking out regularly -- couldn't access heaters, radio, etc.. We were told that they updated the system. Once again we have yet to drive it because the main reason we took it in was because there would be a knocking sound once we started it. It wouldn't happen all the time, but within a couple of times per week is more than enough, especially in a brand new vehicle. The dealership we took the Explorer to had it for almost a week and said they never heard the knocking sound, but the next day I received my car, I heard it. So once again the Explorer is in the shop being looked at. I have yet to hear what the problem is. Other than that, the SUV looks nice, drives nicely, and the remote start is an excellent feature, but if I continue to have difficulties with this, I just can't guarantee we will have the patience to deal with it. For the price we paid (we had it come fully loaded) this should not be happening. Very frustrating and extremely dissapointing.Report it
