Wheel Well Linners Poorly Designed

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

Review

Recently purchased 2012 Ford Explorer XLT. Have been very disappointed when driving it through mud, slush or snow. All the road debris (snow, slush, etc.) flows through the wheel well liners because of manufactured holes and inadequate linner size (too small). The door tracks and inside rails are a dirty mess after driving though any road debris. Ford says this is the way they designed and offer no fix. Dealer suggested we buy/install mud flaps. They have had other complaints about this condition.

Favorite Features

Cruise control is very smooth. Nice ride. SYNC is working fine.

Suggested Improvements

Ford needs to replace the wheel well liners and get correct size for this vehicle. How about giving a free year of navigation system like GM does with On-Star. Also, be aware that you cannot get heated leather seats in this model unless you get My Ford Touch.
