What Are Some Common Complaints About the Ford Explorer?

A common complaint about the Ford Explorer is the lifespan of the paint, especially around the hood, according to reviews on ConsumerAffairs. Other less common complaints include problems with the vehicle shutting off without warning, gas leakage in the interior, and problems with the engine.

Many reviewers who complain about the paint also say they resolved the problem, while other reviewers feel the problems with the Ford Explorer were bad enough that they never plan to buy another Ford vehicle. One reviewer complains about smelling an odor during acceleration and notes that despite several repair services on the car, the problem remains unresolved, and the reviewer is considering taking legal action.
