  1. Yes, we are all complaining about the 10.1 layout. Just a disaster for screen utilization.

    Tesla stock

    Anybody can be "so far ahead" of somebody else when they burn through so much cash they can never make an annual profit. 11 years of losses.. but hey they are so far ahead of everybody else.

    Tesla stock

    And doesnt turn a profit.. so what does that tell you and how much value is there when it is always red? Oh, Toyota made $17 billion net for last fiscal year... yes, look out Toyota!!!
  5. https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/tesla-registrations-california-nearly-halves-010526006.html "The report released on Wednesday showed registrations in California, a bellwether market for the electric-car maker, plummeted 46.5% to 13,584 in the quarter ended December 2019, from 25,402 in the same period a year earlier. Model 3 registrations, which accounted for about three-fourth of the total, halved to 10,694. Tesla did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment. "One can assume that Tesla has hit peak performance in the U.S. because they have not exceeded their 2018 results for five months now," said Shane Marcum, vice-president of Cross-Sell"

    Nope, nobody has been able to get it fixed. I believe 1 had the mirror replaced and it wasnt that because it still did it.
  10. They don't have any spare tents to use.

    Nothing is making sense of this. Even if this was a rolling change and they added it later on in the production, yours which is an Oct build has it and someone on the Explorer forum who has a November build does NOT have it.

    Yup and we have had reports from members (2 or 3) that upon startup and applying the brake and then shifting to reverse, the vehicle starts reversing even though foot is on the brake. Took a full restart for it to respond properly to brake commands. One owner had the reverse sensing slam the brakes on due to cross traffic behind him even though he had his foot into it on the brake pedal. Pretty damn scary putting your vehicle in reverse and then not being able to stop. Must be this ingenious idea of an electronic brake booster instead of hydraulic or vacuum.

    Tesla stock

    Yet Ford sold over 3 million vehicles in 2019 and Tesla sold 367,000. Hardly the "past". PS - Ford is profitable every quarter as well.

    Tesla leases

    I've leased before and I never put money down. The fact that this is required just shows Tesla wants to grab more consumer money upfront that they desperately need. $3,000 down payment minimum on top of $4,000 due at signing. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.caranddriver.com/news/amp27126356/tesla-lease-model-3-model-s-model-x/

    Again, poor road performance is a part of every day life these days. The vehicles themselves should be designed to handle every day driving. THIS IS NOT ABUSE OR NEGLIGENCE. SUVs that are promoted to be off road vehicles should be handle to handle pot holes. And if something breaks, it should be covered. We are not talking about crashing or having an accident. And with that, I'd ask that we get back to the topic of 2020 issues rather than potholes.

    Does your ST have the standard 20" wheels, Street Pack or Track Pack? I have the Street Pack and it doesn't have it. The 2 on the dealer lot I checked (I updated the Explorer thread with pictures) both had the standard 20" wheels. I checked 5 Explorer's on the lot, 2 STs, 1 Platinum, 1 XLT and 1 Limited. The two Explorers with the 2.3 had the rear piece installed. The 3 ST/Platinums with the 3.0 did not have it installed. Ford parts definitely shows it as being on there for the ST with the part number and cost. And now that we confirmed yours had it, shows that all these vehicles have missing parts.

    We are not talking tires,we are talking suspension components.. those very things that are designed to move up and down when hitting bumps and absorb bad road conditions. So yes, I fully expect a suspension component that fails from hitting a pot hole to be covered.. Seriously!!. Tires, forget those, especially on a 45 series tire. It is next to impossible to get a tire manufacturer to warranty anything on them even something as simple as mileage.

    It absolutely would, normal everyday use is not the same as wear items that are only covered under the 1yr/12k warranty. Normal everyday use of a vehicle ( not abused) is what the warranty DOES cover.

    Because the vehicle should be able to handle potholes. Dont show the vehicles off road if you can't drive on what has become normal city streets full of potholes. Dont carefully it is the city or highway, it should be able to absorb and handle that type of situation. A pothole is not owner abuse, its everyday normal use unfortunately.

    Sharp window switches.... like mine... it will slice your finger open as you said. A few other Explorer forum members have the same thing happening. There was a member who drove 3 others on the lot and they all made the clunking noise. It was at that time he decided to take the buy back and go elsewhere. I am willing to give Ford a little time to figure it out. We really love the ST.. the power, handling, braking, cornering, comfort etc is all great. Drives very well in snow even with factory 21s.. driving dynamics of the red are awesome. It is far better then our 2011 as far as enjoyment. I also shut the fake engine noise off and it is far more enjoyable and quiet without listening to that. But I want to put Ford on notice because we only have so long to go LL and if Ford doesnt come up with a fix by then, it's gone. We do over 20k a year in mileage so it wont take long to get there.

    Why do they do this?

    It is there only during Sport mode or if you have Lane keep assist active. Otherwise it is in the middle.

    If I go LL, it will take a few months and likely be into the 21MY. As far as the Aviator, there has not been 1 member with the driveline clunk/thud. No clue where it is coming from but there seems to be a difference between the Explorer and Aviator in this regard. I am covered for 8yr/150k but I'm not going to live with this sound every time I drive. With the amount of buy backs there have been already, I'm shocked Ford engineers havent figured it out yet.

    Just make sure there is no fire truck in front of it with its lights on.
