2012 Ford Explorer Limited 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)

Review

The look is great, the ride is nice but there is a wind noise around the windshield that is very annoying. The vehicle is very quiet escept for this noise. It is especially bad if you are driving into a head wind. Dealer says 2011s had this problem but Ford says they fixed it for 2012 -- they did not. Also I just got a crack in my windshield and no replacements are available yet. Thanks Ford I like driving my expensive, new vehicle around with a big crack in the windshield. I am also wondering if the cracked windshield may relate to the noise coming from the windshield since the vehicle was new.

Favorite Features

Rides nice and gets better mileage than my Expedition that it replaced.

Suggested Improvements

Figure out the widn noise and more room for legs in the second seat.

We have that windshield noise as well. We thought it was just our vehicle. But we have no cracked windshield. It's terrible when its windy like you said. We also have problems with the transmission, in which we think they have corrected. Time will tell. Rainsdrops on the top of the roof are extremely LOUD also. Love the luxury of the SUV but it has a few problems to address. Come on FORD
