FORD EXPLORER 2002 car safety problem was reported on Aug 19, 2002.FORD EXPLORER 2002, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with STRUCTURE:BODY:HATCHBACK/LIFTGATE:HINGE AND ATTACHMENTS . while opening the rear top hatchback, the rear window exploded in my wife's face while my 4 year old sat in the rear seat. my wife received minor scratches from the flying glass. my son was shaken but not injured as the shattered glass flew appx 15 feet outward and to the left and right. since the bottom panel of the top half of the rear gate is only attached to the car by the glass and the defogger cable, this four foot by six inch metal panel slammed to the ground just missing my wife's legs. i was in the house at the time and heard what sounded like a small explosion when it burst. it was terribly frightening to my wife and son. i brought the car to the dealer who at first told me that it was not a warranty issue and i should go to a glass repair shop. i refused and asked them to fix it and inpect the work. they told me they had "only" three or so reported incidents of breakage in past year and that the previous recall notices i received for the rear window had nothing to do with what happened. they said my car was fine after it was checked for the recall notice two previuos times prior to this incident. i am waiting for the car to be repaired.*ak pe04045.pco.1 person(s) were injured.

(why if there is nothing wrong) the factory man said he road tested the car and put it on a lift. he found no problem that is the way a short wheel base should drive. fords big excuse was there is a sticker on the sun visor that reads "avoid abrupt manouvers" the rep even wrote on my service ticket that the lable was in place. the car can flip over but we told you so. i dont think this is safe and it is not right for ford to know they have another problem and wash it away with a lable. drive down a highway and tell me if you can avoid abrupt moves. how come airlines dont put stickers on the seats that this plane might fall from the sky. ford has a problem and the public will pay with their lives.*ak.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMYU60EX2U.

FORD EXPLORER 2002 car safety problem was reported on Nov 19, 2003.FORD EXPLORER 2002, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . the explorer has done about 21,000 miles in 2 and 1/2 years. about 2 months ago, it started having big clunks in the transmission when cold and even a grinding sound. seemed to be when vehicle was being turned in either direction at low speed. the dealer replicated the problem and ordered and installed a "new clutch" in the transfer case -there was some kind of "fluid leakage." problem is now worse, was replicated with the mechanic in the car and the dealer has it back in for another attempt at fixing it. my wife won't drive it anymore. a few months ago it used to have a loud squeak when the vehicle went over speed bumps slowly and this was eventually found and "fixed." i wonder if the clunk in the transfer case is not that at all, but a loose/worn front suspension part giving way or losing tension when the vehicle is turned in either direction. perhaps associated with the strut on the right side but not sure. dealer has tried to be responsive and is not the problem. any one else have a similar problem? *la .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 21000 miles.

FORD EXPLORER 2002 car safety problem was reported on May 15, 2003.FORD EXPLORER 2002, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with STRUCTURE:BODY:HATCHBACK/LIFTGATE:HINGE AND ATTACHMENTS . on may 8, i was placing some items in the rear of my 2002 explorer through the hatchback (the glass part, not the entire rear door). i heard a pop when the glass raised up. since it was dark and i wasn't sure what that noise was, i slowly started to close the glass when it exploded. as it turns out, the right pneumatic shock mount had broken off the glass as it lifted. the glass must have been broken by a portion of that shock mount in the path during closing. luckily, i only received a cut on my hand as glass was everywhere; in my shoes, hair, purse, etc. i am very thankful that my three-year-old was not with me, as she normally would be standing by my side in that situation. i can only imaging what could have happened. my husband drove the vehicle to the ford dealership the next day, anticipating the worst, but they fixed the vehicle free of charge. they claimed that was the first time they had heard of that happening, but they were very quick to give him a loaner and get him out of there. we purchased the vehicle in august of 2002. it had approximately 14,000 miles on it at the time of the incident. i hope this info helps. pe04045_pco.1 person(s) were injured.

FORD EXPLORER 2002 car safety problem was reported on Aug 15, 2003.FORD EXPLORER 2002, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with STRUCTURE:BODY:HATCHBACK/LIFTGATE:HINGE AND ATTACHMENTS . on a hot day, i opened the glass liftgate & the passenger side strut glue came undone, causing the liftgate to not shut properly. i then removed the strut so that i could close the liftgate without breaking the glass, & continue to drive. i never opened it again. a month later, the glue on the holding strut & the glass on the driver side became undone. (also, on the first warm day of this spring season, i powered down the passenger side front seat window, but i was unable to get it to go back up, although the power was working. it became evident that this is also attributable to the inferior bonding product used on this window. the interim remedy was that i taped the window up with duct tape to protect the vehicle from the elements & theft.) it's clear that since this has happened in 2 sections of my new vehicle that there is a defect in the bonding product used on these windows. i found there is a recall for this very problem on my vehicle. (recall no. 01i010000.) there is also a phone no. to call regarding this problem as ford has decided to conduct a special service campaign to inspect and torque the liftgate glass bracket on affected vehicles. i called this number and was advised that, although i have the exact vehicle and problem as the recall requires, my vin number does not render me eligible for the recall. in addition, although i clearly have an affected vehicle, i was not offered the opportunity to have the benefit of the special service campaign.given the nature of the problem, the newness of the vehicle & the fact that it has happened on two windows, this is clearly a manufacturer defect. in addition, there is a recall for the exact problem (on the back window) on my exact vehicle. if for some reason my vin number is not included, it obviously should be included. after all, how do they initially determine which groups of cars have been affected if not by the consumers complaining of the problem? being fixed tomorrow for $800.*ak pe04045.pco.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 25000 miles.

FORD EXPLORER 2002 car safety problem was reported on Feb 06, 2004.FORD EXPLORER 2002, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:WIRING:INTERIOR/UNDER DASH . i had my explorer parked in my driveway, i was walking past it and heard a buzzing/humming sound from the front end. the car was not started though it was making this noise. i called the dealer and asked for service and asked them to hear the noise over the phone. the call was passed around the department and no one could figure it out. i was told to turn the car off and to their surprise i said i had not turned it on. the said bring it in immediately but before we hung up they wanted to see it if would start. it did, we hung up & i was on my way. on the drive there, the buzzing would stop when i would step on the brake, turn on the turn indicator or hit the hazards (didn't need them, just figured i would try them). at the dealership, everyone came out to experience this noise. i have been their customer who brings problems to them before the masses. the technician tried to stop the noise by changing out the fuses, which wasn't the problem. i ended up waiting about an hour while they unassembled the dash to find a short in the steering column. an electronic sensor was having a meltdown. i ended up leaving the explorer with them while they ordered the new peice. the service rep also didn't want me with the vehicle since it was a fire hazard as well. they took care of it and i have not heard of any other owners who have experinced this. *ak .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 41000 miles.

Ford Explorer 2002 Structure Body Hatchback/liftgate Hinge And Attachments Review #10078699

FORD EXPLORER 2002 car safety problem was reported on June 19, 2004.FORD EXPLORER 2002, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with STRUCTURE:BODY:HATCHBACK/LIFTGATE:HINGE AND ATTACHMENTS . after i parked the explorer at the mall, i opened the rear liftgate glass to take out the stroller. after i set the stroller up, i reached up to close the liftgate glass. at this point, while my hand is still on the liftgate, the glass shattered and exploded with glasses flew everywhere. the baby stroller is covered with glasses. unfortunately, i had not put my 8 months old baby is the stroller or else his face would be covered with glasses. at this point, i felt a sharp pain on my right hand and saw that there were two cuts and i was bleeding everywhere. after dropping the explorer at a dealer nearby, i went to the urgent care and got 12 stitches for the cuts. i called ford customer relationship center on monday to report the incident and was told to wait for 2 business days for the ford consumer affairs to call me back. after two days of waiting, i called back and this time i was told that it might take up to 7 days before they can call me back. i did some research on this problem and found out that there are numerous complaints filed with nhtsa regarding this problem and there is an open investigation by odi (opened on 06/02/2004). apparently, shortly after the introducing the 2002 explorer for sale, ford issued a special service instruction (ssi 01i-010) in april of 2001 to correct a liftgate lift cylinder mount issued in 56,000 vehicles built from 2/5/2001 to 3/30/2001. all vehicles built after that period were to have an improved lift cylinder mounting design. my explorer was built on 04/20/2001. however, i am very suspicious that this build date might be wrong since i kept the window sticker and the dealer's invoice when i bought the explorer and the dates on those is 04/09/2001. why is this date (04/09/2001) before my explorer's production date (04/20/2001)? my explorer might have been built during this 2/5/2001 - 3/20/2001 period since there are numerous complaints on this problem with known build dates after april 2001 period. *ak pe04045.pco.1 person(s) were injured.

FORD EXPLORER 2002 car safety problem was reported on Aug 03, 2004.FORD EXPLORER 2002, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with POWER TRAIN:DRIVELINE:DIFFERENTIAL UNIT . we purchased a 2002 explorer in aug.2002. from day one it had a noise in the rear end that was audible when pressing the accelerator, but would stop when released. we took it to the dealership within a few weeks of the purchase and they told us it was road noise and normal. since then the noise has gotten louder and we took it to a different dealership today. we were told our differential is goingn bad and needs to be replaced at $970 and we would have to wait for them to order the part. we told him it has been going on since we bought it and he said probably so there is a press release about it. he also said it will continue to get louder until if fails and it could cause an accident when the rear end locks up. unfortunatly we are no longer covered by the warantee and have to pay for it ourselves. i have read on this website and others and it seems to be a ford trend to tell people there is nothing wrong with their cars until it is no longer under warantee and then admit that there is a problem. i have filed a complaint with ford motor company as well and was told that if they get enough complaints about this problem they will look into it becoming a recall issue where i "might" get a refund.*ak.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 0 miles.

FORD EXPLORER 2002 car safety problem was reported on Feb 01, 2002.FORD EXPLORER 2002, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:ENGINE . i own a 2002 ford explorer xls and it has been into the ford service-repair shop a total 0f 37 work hours -10 documented service days for an annoying ticking noise coming from the front dash-console-engine area that can not seem to be repaired. it doesn't matter whether or not that the engine is cold or warm, the weather condtions hot-dry or humid and wet, it still ticks intermitently for sometimes around 8 minutes or can go on for 20 at that moment. when it starts it sounds like a toggle switch going on and off and then makes a rubbing ,squeaking , ticking noise that starts off low and then gets so loud that you can hear it with the radio on set at a slightly high volume. it does not matter whether the air is on or off, the radio-cd is on or off or the heat is on or off. all conditions have been tested . the front dash has been removed numerous times and reinsulated, a new radio has been put in, the winshield replaced, vents and glove box removed and wiring checked. once the sound starts, bumpiness in the road seems to produce the sound louder and more often. also while turning the steering wheel on a winding road that is somewhat bumpy also produces the sound. it is not a pleasure to drive this vehicle and it has been serviced as i stated for this problem ever since 2002. it was purchased in july of 2001. the dealership and many diffferent techs. ca not find or repair the problem. i would get rid of it if it wasn't for the fact that i could not honestly sell a lemon in good faith. this vehicle body wise is is excellent condition and only has 27,000 miles on it. as i see it, i have only had a perfect vehicle for 1 year out of the 3 years i have owned it. i have been faithful to ford and that is only what i have owned the last 28 years and currently own 3 other ford vehicles. my father worked and retired from ford motor co. his whole life and none of us have ever experienced such disappointment in one of their products. *ak.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 0 miles.

FORD EXPLORER 2002 car safety problem was reported on Nov 23, 2004.FORD EXPLORER 2002, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with POWER TRAIN:MANUAL TRANSMISSION . i have had the 2002 ford explorer xlt 4x4 for less than 3 years and have driven approximately 47,000 miles. we began having transmission problems about 4 months. the first issue was a whine in the rear end that started at 20mph and got louder until about 60mph. next the shift between gears started to get rough and there was a delay when shifting into reverse. when we brought it into the dealer they said the following would need to be replaced: the solenoid and related parts (to fix the issues with the transmission shifting between gears) and the rear differential (to fix the whining noise). total cost is about $2,750. i expect a transmission to last more than 3 years.*ak .Mileage was 40000 miles.
