  1. Pretty sure there's a substantial weight difference... aluminum block Four vs iron block V6. My 03 Mach 1 with all aluminum DOHC 32 valve V8 only makes 305 hp and 320 lb-ft torque... things sure have changed!

    Simply awesome... how did the paint turn out? Did you find any other issues?
  3. I've been accused of having Symmetry OCD... which is characterized by the need for things to be symmetrical, perfect, exact, just right, or correctly aligned... resulting in compulsions that include ordering, arranging, evening up or aligning things. But I know most vehicles need to have forward rake and trucks require significantly more rake because they're designed to tow and haul things. So I've learned to really like that forward stance, but I still hate to see trucks that squat backwards when carrying a load, lol.

    2020 Explorer ST tuned !

    Oh ya I see it now... guess I should have read the Police Interceptor thread before wasting time doing web searches... didn't even realize I could just clink on your post above to take me there until now, lol. I also forget that already washed my hair while showering somtimes... pretty often actually, lol.

    2020 Explorer ST tuned !

    Piecing together the scant web info on the 10R60, it appears it's in all Explorers/Aviators except the PHEV models (Aviator GT and Explorer PHEVs for Europe).... looks like they get the 10R80.

    Wow... I agree with you, that is very annoying and shouldn't happen!!

    Check your dora or order summary. Order type will either say Retail (customer order) or Stock (dealer order). A retail order will also list the customers name and have a priority code between 10 and 19. Retail orders shouldn't show up in a dealers inventory. It's not uncommon for a dealer to place a customer order as a stock order, not sure why they do that though.

    Sounds like they placed it as a dealer order instead of a retail order in your name?

    Build quality worries

    IMO, the Aviator is the sharpest looking SUV on the planet... inside and out... from any angle and by any brand and no matter the cost. There really isn't even a close second... congrats and enjoy the experience!!!

    Build quality worries

    I don't get it... seems like even the retail orders after OK to buy are being delayed due to the same quality issues. Why did they issue OKTB on both models if they didn't get the 5 (?) consecutive production days in a row without QC issues. Why did they start building retail orders with known production defects?

    Homelink on new Fords?

    Just downloaded the Explorer owners manual (2nd printing) and Homelink operation is described on page 157.

    Congrats... Expeditions are awesome and you won't regret it. We put 160K trouble free miles on our '98 1st Gen and traded it for our current 2nd Gen. Great vacation vehicle for long road trips!! I got the 3K Expy only personel cash offer also and thought hard about getting a 3rd Gen instead of ordering an Aviator, but couldn't locate a '19 equipped like we wanted.
  15. I can vouch for that... our 2010 Fusion Hybrid was purchased new in August of 2019. So it's 10 years old with 130K miles and no sign of battery degradation yet.... and It has the old style NIMH batteries.
