2012 Ford Explorer: A Question of Tolerance

January 30, 2012

I didn't set out to inspect the Explorer's gap tolerances, but after spending several days in the Ford, this one became glaringly obvious.

The photo above is the driver's side, where the door meets the dash. It's flush. The photo below is the passenger side. The dash is a good quarter-to-half-inch above the door at the back of the gap.
