Overheating problems
By hrivington on


2011 Ford Explorer 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


I have about 7000 kms on this Explorer and I had to have it towed back to the dealer because of overheating problems.

I have been driving for over 40 years and I have never had to have my vehicle towed.

I had to leave my daughter at the soccer field.

I would recommend to people thinking about buying a a Ford Explorer (Exploder) "Don't do it"!

Best Features

I wish it had a "give me my money back" button.

Worst Features

Scrap the whole lot of them.

So last week it was a defective fan motor that caused the exploder to overheat so now its back in the shop again only this time the whole computer is dead! No heat/radio/nav no nothing. Everytime I see a Ford commercial saying how good the quality is I choke. JUNK
