    2020 Explorer Platinum

    All explorers are coming with 45psi in them. We are all lowering them to 33 and the ride is far better. Every member on the Explorer forum has reported it and dealers apparently are morons and not adjusting it as part of the PDI.

    More Good Press :(

    They ran that plant for 5 weeks before O2B on Explorer was given. Defective part here and there.. sure... but their are quality issues still happening that shouldn't be. And final inspection should not be releasing vehicles with fading parts, gaps, scratches etc.

    More Good Press :(

    “As part of the launch of Lincoln Aviator, we were shipping vehicles to Flat Rock for additional quality checks and inspections. This is a longstanding practice at Ford Motor Co. with all-new vehicles to ensure that our vehicles are the highest possible quality for customers and we are taking every necessary action to ensure that the Aviator is built with the levels of quality and craftsmanship that our luxury customers expect,” she said." ya BS!!! Just admit this is another F'd up launch. The PR spin that this is normal is utter BS unless they mean that the F up so many launches bow that yes this is standard procedure.
  8. Cyberdman, would you mind helping me track this for a member? Wondering if there is a build date yet. Thanks again for your assistance. 1FM5K8GCXLGB17722

    AVIATOR GT Delivery Date

    Dealers get floorplan assistance that covers 3-4 months of interest. On top of that, I would NEVER put down a non refundable deposit. What if Inget injured.. what if I lose my job.. what if the car comes in damaged etc. No way would I agree for them to keep MY money. And if it IS refundable, then why put it down at all since at any time you can get it back. There are far too many dealers out there.. if one requires it, I go to the next.

    2020 Aviator Start Stop :-(

    I have never experienced any delay. Literally as soon as I start to let up, it restarts. The only way I can beat the system and get my foot on the gas pedal before it restarts is if I slide my foot from left to right essentially not lifting off the brake. At that point, I can actually press on the gas before the restart. But at any point I go to lift off, even a 1/16", it restarts. This goes for every Ford I have driven with this system.

    2020 Aviator Start Stop :-(

    If you are entering an intersection so quickly that the start/stop is such a concern, then you are not safetly entering the intersection. Start/stop is so instantaneous that the engine is running before you step on the gas.

    Member on the Explorer forum has a 91 tune at 2500dt and got a 4.89 0-60. The real question is.. how much can this 10r60 take.

    2020 Explorer Platinum

    Just wondering why you are asking for tracking help and not posting in the tracking forum... cyberdman has a forum for you to post in if you want his help.
  21. It specifically says in the US manual that the tow hook is in the spare wheel storage tray.

    O2B was give. Mid June.. there are a ton of orders through end of June that were retail orders still sitting as "in productuon"... yes, over 2 months this way. Just go look at the Ford tracking forum. The worst part of it all is Ford isnt saying a damn word to anyone..
