Ford Explorer 1997 Seat Belts Front Buckle Assembly Review #701022

FORD EXPLORER 1997 car safety problem was reported on Jan 15, 1997.FORD EXPLORER 1997, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with SEAT BELTS:FRONT:BUCKLE ASSEMBLY . an unusual problem that has happened to me probably over 100 times in 2 years. after unbuckling the seatbelt, the seatbelt starts to retract as it's supposed to. however, just before fully retracting, with about 7-8 inches to go, the belt gets twisted just before it enters the belt shoulder guide/support/slide (exact name unknown--mounted on frame, about ear level when seated in car, changes the direction of the belt position to vertical). it seems to me that the weight of the buckle (male end) is off center in relation to the belt and causes the belt to twist. this twist prevents the belt from sliding throught the shoulder belt support/guide/slide. the 7-8 inches of slack gets caught in the door after exiting and closing the door. after re-entering the car and closing the door, the slack in the belt is still there (nothing has changed since exiting the car). the seat belt can be easily buckled (it just takes additional belt off the retraction roller) but the belt is still stuck in the door and the driver would never know it. a slight tug on the belt frees it from the door and the excess belt is retracted. this is a problem should the belt be called upon to work with the slack caught in the door. in a head-on, the body moving forward would not be restrained until the slack part of the belt is no longer stuck in the door. (the body moving forward frees the belt from the door). i'm sorry for the lengthy description..Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMDU24E7VU. Ford Explorer 1997 problem was reported in UPTON, NY.

FORD EXPLORER 1997 car safety problem was reported on .FORD EXPLORER 1997, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with UNKNOWN OR OTHER . in early march of 1997 the ford assembly plant in louisville, ky flooded. this plant produces ford explorers, mercury mountaineers, and ford ranger pickup trucks. ford estimated that "approximately 2000 vehicles were affected." ford also stated that "none of the damaged vehicles will be shipped to dealerships." not true. i bought one of the damaged vehicles at don reid ford in maitland, florida. don reid ford failed to disclose the material fact that my truck had been flooded and cleaned as a result of the flood. my guess is that ford sold all or most of the 2000 damaged vehicles. my truck is rusting, on the bumper and the underside of the car. i also have an electrical problem: my windshield wipers come on of their own volition. i assume that the other owners of these damaged vehicles might be having electrical problems, or other unexplained problems related to the flood, which could pose safety problems. the problem is that these owners don't know that their vehicles had been sitting in the floodwaters of kentucky. my guess is that ford has secret warranties for these cars..Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMCU22X9VU.

Ford Explorer 1997 Vehicle Speed Control Review #713116

FORD EXPLORER 1997 car safety problem was reported on Oct 01, 1999.FORD EXPLORER 1997, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . the vehicle was purchsed new with 7 miles on odometer from charles gabus ford in des moines, ia. a few days after purchase, i noticed and reported to dealer that the accelerator pedal would stick at the top, meaning that it required extra pressure to push it down. initially the cable was looked at and lubrication applied, but did not alleviate the problem. charles gabus ford then suggested replacement of the throttle body. this was accomplished within 2 months of purchase and alleviated the problem for a few months. when the problem reoccured, charles gabus kept the vehicle for 3-4 days to further inspect the problem to see whether disconnecting the cruise control had any effect. it did not, so the throttle body was changed again. this was around february 1998. the problem once again started occuring in august 1998. at that time, i had just moved to st. louis, but was still working with the service manager at charles gabus ford in des moines. i was told that ford had now redesigned the throttle body and i was given that new part number, which was ordered and replaced by a dealership in st. louis (mcmahon ford) in september 1998. the vehicle was still under warranty at that time. in may 1999, i received a letter from ford that it was providing additional warranty coverge for the throttle body for 6 years or 72,000 miles under service program number 99m02. in september 1999, the problem resurfaced and the throttle body is scheduled to be replaced this week. the concern is that i have just verified that the throttle body touted as the solution in the letter is the same throttle body part number replaced a year ago. therefore, it seems probable ford has not found the fix, and why should owners pay for this defect (and the resulting diminshed value of the vehicle) regardless of mileage? a year from now, when the accelerator starts sticking again, i will have more than 72,000 miles. any suggestions?.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMDU34E6VU.

FORD EXPLORER 1997 car safety problem was reported on June 23, 2000.FORD EXPLORER 1997, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . the 4-wheel drive lites (4-wheel dr-low & 4-wheel dr) and the cruise control lite began flashing on the dash. i stopped at a ford dealership, pocatello, idaho. they put on computer, but said they could find nothing in the gem memory, so advised me to drive on to salt lake city, but do not put in cruise control, and this would not harm the car's equipment or be unsafe. i returned from my trip and stopped at a retirement home's parking lot in idaho falls on july 1, 2000 and the car made "banging" noises when reversed out of the parking slot. the dash lites that had been flashing previously were not showing. i called the broadway ford dealership that services the car to haul it in for repair. they found the sensors were not working properly. then they test drove the car and said it had a noise in the transfer case and thought they should investigate. they found shavings in the fluid, and have parts on order. i am alarmed at what might have happened while driving on the interstate to and from salt lake city at 75 mph, as the car lurched and banged in reverse and forward gear when i tried to drive out of the parking lot at the retirement home. it seemed to have the gears locked up, or the two 4-wheel drive transmissions not working together. they cannot assure me that the transmission might also be damaged from these sensors not working.*ak.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMDU34X9VZ.

FORD EXPLORER 1997 car safety problem was reported on July 08, 2000.FORD EXPLORER 1997, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with TIRES:TREAD/BELT . while driving home from jackson,ms on interstate 20 on sat. july8,2000, our car started vibrating and making a noise. my daughter asked what was wrong and what to do. i told her that i thought we had a blow out. i instructed her to brake and slow down as much and as fast as possible and try to keep the car on the road. the vehicle was slowing down and she was maintaining control until something stopped the car from rolling and she lost control as if something was physically pulling the wheel hard to the right. she then lost complete control and the car started turning to the right. we then hit a bridge abutment on the driver's side, the car spinned completely around from the first impact with the bridge and then we hit the bridge on the passenger's front side, we were knocked clear of the bridge and headed down an embankment toward a large stand of pines and the car came to rest just past the driving lane on the highway. we had a witnesses from dallas, texas, also driving an suv, who told us that they saw the entire accident and that there was nothing my daughter could have done differently because they could see the steel belt of the tire get caught up in the mechanism under the car and then she lost total control. we were told by the state trooper who accompanied us to the emergency room that he was glad we hit the bridge like we did because if we had not we would have probably rolled or hit the stand of pines after going airborne head on. he stated that he had seen numerous occasions in a situation like ours that the occupants of the vehicle were critically hurt or killed. my husband and i feel that the firestone company and/or the ford manufacturer should replace our vehicle with a new one and at the least, pay our medical expenses which were minimal according to the terrible accident we had. we are lucky to be alive! we will not stop until every one we are acquainted with knows how negligent the manufacturers are in this matter. *ak.Vehicle was involved in a crash. 2 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Ford Explorer 1997 problem was reported in MERIDIAN, MS.

FORD EXPLORER 1997 car safety problem was reported on June 13, 1998.FORD EXPLORER 1997, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with TIRES . i was driving from l.a. to phoenix on 6/13/98. prior to my departure from l.a., all of the tires were checked for the drive. they were all in good condition. at 9:30am i was driving east on i-10 @ 75mph with the cruise control on. the road became bumpy and i switched lanes. my vehicle immediately lunged to the left and i realized that my left rear tire had blown, and the rim had caught the pavement. i wrestled to keep the vehicle straight while heading for an off-ramp to avoid traffic & an upcoming overpass. it fish-tailed back and forth until and began to slide sideways. it slid through a road sign and then rolled over ending upside down beside the road, facing traffic. the vehicle was totaled and i suffered many cuts to my head (along with many strained muscles.) i was lucky. the chp report held me responsible for the crash. i contended at the time that the blow-out was more abrupt and sever than any i had ever experienced, and that controlling the vehicle with such an abrupt blow at that speed was impossible. i disputed the report. i also complained to the dealer, the dmv and the insurance agency. all held me responsible and the dealer offered that i could try and sue the tire company. i didn't. as a result, i lost a new car, and spent many weeks recuperating. my insurance rates also increased as well as receiving a point on my drivers license. i did manage to have some pictures taken of the ford & the blown tire following the crash. the police report was taken by chp officer l. quattlebaum #12917, report # 98060056.

FORD EXPLORER 1997 car safety problem was reported on Mar 20, 2000.FORD EXPLORER 1997, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with TIRES . as we were returning from vacation on 3/20/00 from florida, my wife (the driver at the time) felt weird vibrations through the steering wheel. (note -we were approx. 5 miles in to georgia on i-75 just passed the ga/fl border - near lake park?). as we continued to slow down and move away from other traffic, we heard a popping noise from under the explorer as if things were kicking up from the road and hitting the undercarriage. once we were able to pull off the interstate, i looked under the suv and did a quick visual inspection of the tires, however, all appeared to be normal (no flats, nothing that we could visibly see). we pulled back onto the interstate and before we even reached merging speed (55 - 60 mph), the popping noise returned and we could actually see small black parts exiting the rear of the vehicle. we managed to immediately pull off the road and enter a gas station at which time we discovered a foot long patch of the left rear tire was completly gone. although the tire never deflated, a complete foot long section of tread, through the steel belts and all, was gone. no other damage to the tire was visible (side walls all okay, no punctures, nails, etc.). i inspected the rest of the tires and we continued our trip home once the spare tire was installed. on 4/1/00, i went to the local firestone center (940 old monrovia rd, huntsville, al 35806) and had them inspect the damaged tire. although they did not confirm or deny that the tire was defective, they did offer me a new tire at a pro-rated discount. at that time, i had them inspect all of the tires, perform wheel balances, rotations, etc. based on the tread wear at that time, full replacement of all tires was not needed. since that time, we have heard from other people of similar problems and with the latest news on the investigation of the firestone tires, i felt it was necessary to report our experience. we were fortunate not to have had an accident and are awaiting more recall info..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMDU32E9VU.

FORD EXPLORER 1997 car safety problem was reported on June 28, 1998.FORD EXPLORER 1997, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with TIRES . at approximately 11;30 p.m. may 28, 1999,as we were traveling along interstate 10, just outside of tallahassee ,florida, my explorer suddenly veered toward the left abruptlly. a loud crashing sound was heard from the right rear of the vehicle. pulling the car on the shoulder of the road, my wife and i checked to see what had happened. much to our surprise there was nothing left to the right rear tire except shreds of a radial tire. lucky for us , that at the time of the problem, i was driving and not my wife, as she would have never been able to manuever during the problem. also there was no one in the right lane due to the late hour. with great problem, we changed the tire and arrived at our destination quite shaken up. after further examination of the tire and the vehicle the next morning, we realized that there had been much damage to the underpanels of the car. i must note, that at the time we were trailering a wave runner . so you can imagine how difficult it was to keep the vehicle and the boat on the road. after returning home, i went to firestone , a which time i was told that they could do nothing for me. i purchased 2 new tires to replace the back tires from firestone. one year later , almost to the exact date, we were again visiting in the tallahassee area, and on our way home the car began to shake. after going through the ordeal the last time, we quickly pulled over to check the tires and sure enough the same thing was starting to happen again. we changed the tire and came home. the very next day we replaced all the tires on the vehicle but not with firestone tires. i must mention that there was a total of $920 worth of damage done to the explorer during the may 1999 accident. there was no damage done during the latest shredding because i knew what was happening again. i am quite upset with the fact that nothing was done for me last year or this year ecept a denial on firestones part. my family could have been seriously hurt, not once but twice..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMCU22EOVU.

FORD EXPLORER 1997 car safety problem was reported on Aug 23, 2000.FORD EXPLORER 1997, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with TIRES . after having my '97 ford explorer sport firestone wilderness at tires checked on tuesday, august 22 at 5:00 pm, i was given a printout from bob davidson ford that confirmed that my wilderness at's were not part of the firestone recall as they did not have the needed "vd" dot code. the dealer's report read, "not applicable to recall. tires of ok dot (w2hl). i was leary about driving the explorer on interstate 95 from baltimore to delaware but had to join my wife who was assisting her 85 year old mother who is recovering from a broken pelvis in wilmington. returning home at about 10:15 pm from wilmington, del. to baltimore, md. on wednesday, august 23, the explorer started to swim on the road, noticeably swerving. just then a man in a car on my right started yelling at me and pointing to the rear of my vehicle. i realized something was very wrong and pulled over immediately. the tire was flat. although it was not a "blowout" as has caused many accidents in explorers over the past few months, the tire went flat quickly, in a couple minutes at most. when i took off the tire and looked inside, there were large air bubbles inside the tire. in addition, the tire was shredded in several sections inside. the outside of the tire was mushy and spongey. early on thursday, august 24, i took the tire to the firestone tire center and they informed me that i had hit something on the road that had caused the tire to lose air. however, there was no puncture and the inside of the tire was obviously ripped apart rather extensively. when we consulted with other tire dealers about the condition of our other three tires on the vehicle they pointed out the cracks all along the edge of the tread, indicating that the tread is noticeably beginning to separate from the rest of the tire. as the tires are in "mid-life" but not on the formal recall list, we are stuck with tires unsafe to drive on the highway. we hope the recall will be expanded soon..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):IFMCU24X7VU.

FORD EXPLORER 1997 car safety problem was reported on Aug 15, 2000.FORD EXPLORER 1997, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with TIRES:TREAD/BELT . upon taking my ford explorer to firestone to see if my tires are in the recall, i was informed that my front tires were so badly worn on the inside edge that the steel belts could be seen. i took the truck to my local ford dealer, howard ford of west memphis, and they informed me that the caster and camber bushings were worn out and would have to be replaced. they also stated that this is a normal wear item. my problem with this statement is that i have regularly had ford service my explorer and rotate the tires from day one. the service technician asked me who has been servicing my explorer right off the bat. he said this as if whoever it was, should have noticed this. when i informed him that his service department was the only one to ever do anything to this vehicle, he changed the subject. after speaking with a service manager at a different ford dealership, it is my feeling that this poor design of the wheel assembly, and the inferior material used in these bushings could be just as much a cause in the tire problem as anything. my reasoning is this, i recently had my tires rotated and the ford dealer never mentioned any problem with the front end. now, less than 5,000 miles later, my tires are so worn that you can see the steel belts. i strongly urge nhtsa to research this matter and make ford to take there share of the blame for these accidents amd deaths.( dot number: tire size: p235/75r15 ).0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMDU32P1VU.

FORD EXPLORER 1997 car safety problem was reported on Aug 23, 2000.FORD EXPLORER 1997, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with TIRES . the firestone wilderness at p255/70r16 tires listed in the report were on the rear vehicle (ford 1997 explorer, eddie bower 4x4, 4 door model). these tires appeared to be original. total vehicle miles were approximately 62,000 miles. tread wear was excellent for these tires. there is approximately one-fourth inch tread left on these tires. i have been inspecting each of the vehicle's tires before and after each day's commute. i noticed small fractures developing at the edge of the tread where it meets the sidewall of the tire. both rear tires exhibited the small fractures. during the last inspection (on 08/23/00), i noticed the fractures widening significantly. at least one of the fractures on the outer side of the left rear tire exhibited steel wires protruding from the bulge. i immediately discontinued use of the vehicle and contacted a local firestone representative. because the tires are not part of their recall, they offered to inspect and possibly prorate warranty. i did not want firestone replacements because i believe that these model tires have design defects. i had all four wilderness tires on the vehicle replaced by the local ford dealer. the second rear tire had larger bulges and steel wire protrusions on the inside of the tire. i believe that these two rear tires were in imminent danger of catastrophic tread separation. the front tires appear to have been replaced and i do not think they are original. they appear newer with much more tread remaining than the rear tires. no obvious signs of defect appear on the front tires. the front tire specifics follow: wilderness at p255/70r16. dot vdcu1px119. thank you for your attention, kent e. parrish( dot number: w2cu1px076 tire size: p255/70r16 ).0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMDU34E0VZ.

FORD EXPLORER 1997 car safety problem was reported on May 28, 2000.FORD EXPLORER 1997, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with TIRES . i was on the highway driving 65 mph at the time when i thought there was a funny noise, then i started to swerve, but kept it under control, slowed down and pulled to the side of the road in a driveway. when i had left my home that morning i had felt a funny vibration, but had figured it was just a tire out of balance and on the front of the vehicle. the farther i drove the worse the vibration got, to the point my seat belt was "engaged" all the time. i was dressed up, going out of town to a reception, the tires were fairly new with correct air pressure and plenty of tread left. i do not enjoy changing tires, especially on an explorer on the side of the road in nice clothes in the mist. i keep good tires on my vehicles, in fact these were 6-ply tires since i live in the country. two good samaratins stopped and changed the tire for me (and put on my spare which is now in the recall!) and they said the tires were worn funny and the tread was split. i no longer have that tire, but i have the one that was purchased at the same time, if anyone would care to look at it. i replaced those tires with 6-ply kelly tires and put thenm on the front. three weeks ago, i noticed some strange splits in the sidewalls of my remaining 2 bridestone tires, now on the back of the explorer. i showed them to a mechanic who said i would be wise to get them replaced. i have since replaced them with 2 more 6-ply kelly tires. when i recieved my recall notice i noticed that, even though these were bridgestones and 6-ply tires, the symptoms of the tread failure were the same and i decided to report it to someone. i hope you can use this information to help othe people avoid scary situations on the highway. thank you.( dot number: tire size: p235/75r15 ).0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMDU34E2VU.

FORD EXPLORER 1997 car safety problem was reported on Aug 12, 1999.FORD EXPLORER 1997, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with TIRES . we were driving on highway 75 in oklahoma when the left rear tire blew out from tread separation. it was 105 degrees at the time. what saved us from rolling over was that we were pulling a loaded trailer, and it kept us on the road. there were 2 of us in the car at the time and no one was hurt, but we could have been killed. i have since traded that explorer for a newer model explorer, and unfortunately, the newer model also has the firestone tires. the mileage i showed at the top of the form was the mileage on the day i had the tires replaced - i still have a copy of the receipt for the new tires. an oklahoma state highway patrolman stopped and helped us change the tire, so there may be a record, but i'm sure it isn't very detailed. since this happened last year i don't know the specific information about the model of tire or where it was manufactured, and of course, i don't have the tires.( dot number: tire size: p235/75/15 ).0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMDU32X7VZ.

FORD EXPLORER 1997 car safety problem was reported on May 28, 2000.FORD EXPLORER 1997, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with TIRES . i was on the highway driving 65 mph at the time when i thought there was a funny noise, then i started to swerve, but kept it under control, slowed down and pulled to the side of the road in a driveway. when i had left my home that morning i had felt a funny vibration, but had figured it was just a tire out of balance and on the front of the vehicle. the farther i drove the worse the vibration got, to the point my seat belt was "engaged" all the time. i was dressed up, going out of town to a reception, the tires were fairly new with correct air pressure and plenty of tread left. i do not enjoy changing tires, especially on an explorer on the side of the road in nice clothes in the mist. i keep good tires on my vehicles, in fact these were 6-ply tires since i live in the country. two good samaratins stopped and changed the tire for me (and put on my spare which is now in the recall!) and they said the tires were worn funny and the tread was split. i no longer have that tire, but i have the one that was purchased at the same time, if anyone would care to look at it. i replaced those tires with 6-ply kelly tires and put thenm on the front. three weeks ago, i noticed some strange splits in the sidewalls of my remaining 2 bridestone tires, now on the back of the explorer. i showed them to a mechanic who said i would be wise to get them replaced. i have since replaced them with 2 more 6-ply kelly tires. when i recieved my recall notice i noticed that, even though these were bridgestones and 6-ply tires, the symptoms of the tread failure were the same and i decided to report it to someone. i hope you can use this information to help othe people avoid scary situations on the highway. thank you.( dot number: tire size: p235/75r15 ).0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMDU34E2VU.

FORD EXPLORER 1997 car safety problem was reported on .FORD EXPLORER 1997, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with TIRES . i recently took the car to a ford dealership to have a check-up. i knew that i would need to replace the tires soon, but have had trouble finding replacement tires due to the recall. the ford service tech called me at work to tell me that my steel threads were showing through on one rear tire, and they did not have any replacements for me. he recommended that they put on the spare tire until i could get new ones. since i knew that i would be driving on the highway for 120+ miles on labor day towing a horse trailer with my horse, i did not want to just have three worn tires and a spare. i started calling around and found four replacement tires (goodyear wrangler at/s) at a kaufman tire store. i drove from the ford dealership that same day (on the original tires) to have the new ones put on. as they were switching the tires, the kaufman rep came to the waiting area to tell me - "you really dodged a bullet". apparently, not only were the steel threads showing, they were showing because the tread was separating. they did not mention this to me at the ford dealership. i have kept the tires, and the one looks as if someone took a razor blade to the edge - all the way around. as this was on the inside edge, i could not see it. i have my tires rotated regularly - the last time about a month and a half ago, so either this is a recent split, or the servicer did not notice (or noticed and failed to mention it to me). given the recall, i thought i should info the nhtsa. thank you.*ak( dot number: vf... tire size: p235/75r15 ).Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMDU32P9VU.

FORD EXPLORER 1997 car safety problem was reported on .FORD EXPLORER 1997, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with TIRES . please be advised that i have not had an incident with the tires as of yet. i forwarded an email to your organization on 11 sept. 2000 to advise what i think is a potential problem with my current tires and received a return email from you on 12 sept. 2000. per your return email i was advised to fill out the "owner's questionnaire" form and submit it. unfortunately certain fields have to be populated, which would indicate i had an incident already. this is not the case. the tires i currently have on my 97 ford explorer are firestone wilderness, dot code vnhl, p235/75r15 105s m/s. as i'm sure you're aware these are not on the recall list but my dilema is the tires show, in my opinion, signs of "tread seperation" idntical to the tires being recalled. i discussed this with the ford dealership as well as firestone on the phone and they advise if they are not covered by the recall there's nothing we can do. i've taken digital pictures to show these lines unfortunately i don't think i can attach the pictures to this questionnaire. please note that i will try and return email your message of the 11th to you at "hotline, auto " with your reference wt20000911_0000000518 / re: wilderness tires (ford explorer) and i will attach all of the pictures. please advise what course of action i have for (in my opinion) defective tires that are currently not covered by the recall? this is a real safety issue for anyone who is in our vehicle and i am extremely concerned ! ! ! please advise. *ak( dot number: vnhl tire size: p235/75r15 ).0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMDU34X9VU.
