  1. In 2023 Ford issued 57 vehicle safety campaigns involving more than six million vehicles. In 2021, 2022 and 2023 Ford had the highest number of safety recall campaigns and the most vehicles subject to a safety recall. Already in 2024, Ford has issued a major safety recall involving more than 100,000 F-150pickup trucks. When will the poor quality stop?

    21 Navigator Entering Deep Sleep Mode Too Soon

    From afar - I’d say you have another defective battery (or one that doesn’t receive a full charge and the car’s system can detect a partial charge).

    2018 Navigator Cooling by upgrading to Tow Package Radiator?

    The HD radiator is thicker than the standard one. The engine thermostat does not control heat - once it opens. Any coolant temperature above the opening thermostat temperature has to controlled or lowered by the radiator and its fans.

    Help with a couple of issues with my 2004

    What frustrated me is that Chamberlain did NOT include information regarding the lack-of-compatibility with certain, older model vehicles in their printed manual (or box exterior), which caused us significant wasted time by repeatedly trying to program the car to the opener.

    Help with a couple of issues with my 2004

    #1. I recently went through this issue when I installed a new Craftsman MyQ garage door opener (made by Liftmaster) at my son's house. It replaced a 20-year old Craftsman chain-drive model. The new MyQ garage door opener would not program to his 2012 Impala. He has a 2022 Ford Explorer and it programmed fine. After a little online research, I learned that the "older" Homelink controllers (and another brand that I don't remember the name) are not compatible with the new MyQ system. The instruction manual made NO mention of this issue - and the outside of the box did not also. I did a little on line research and quickly learned one company made a "bridge" to connect the old system to the new MyQ openers - but the company went out of business. I did not save the online link that had a very good explanation on why the new system is not compatible with the old Homelink car systems. I suspect your car is similar to my son's 2012 Impala. For that car he is now using the supplied garage door opener controler.

    Sunroof seal??

    The part is called a “shield” - part number FL3Z16500A66A. There are two of them (same part number) - one for each side of the sunroof. Perhaps examine the right (passenger) side of the sunroof to determine how it is attached?

    Good Customer Service - or Lack of Same

    It took a Ford dealer to 51 days to repair my 2015 Expedition’s transmission after diagnosis, then 71 days to replace the steering gear after diagnosis - both due to lack of parts from Ford.

    2020 Aviator - 4WD Malfunction

    Wow! Not what one would expect from a Lincoln. Ford / Lincoln is having a huge problem with warranty costs and safety recalls (also a huge cost). I’m not sure if they will ever get a handle on all the quality issues.

    Chrome Delete?

    I always thought vehicles with blacked-out trim and wheels looked like test mules, or the low-end model. But - to each his own. I don’t understand buying a new, expensive vehicle that you don’t the looks of and then changing it. Why didn’t you just buy a vehicle with blacked-out trim?

    2022 GT Clicking noise

    Some HVAC actuators are easy to reach and replace. Some require partial or full removal of the dash assembly (on some vehicles). If you remove the battery cable - it will erase any stored trouble codes, which will prevent the dealer technician from identifying the source of the problem (if a code is set and stored). Since the car is under warranty, I would not remove the cable and suggest having the dealer evaluate and repair the car. There MAY be a TSB available for the dealer technician to quickly determine the source of the noise. Best wishes - let us know what the dealer determines.
