I made a previous complaint about the new for explorers and the sterring problems, drivingthis car is a death wish. You can look up the previous post . Now something new has come to light, diving the car in the snow is also every dangerous. The tires don 't grip the road, its taken up to 30ft to stop from 15 miles per hr. Also my wife car drives and stops better in two whell drive the the explorer does in 4 whell drive. Her car is the jeep patriot. The new ford is a total piece of s--t. Own it and drive it is putting your life on the line. I haves six of them and whatched get worse and worse, this is the last one, no more fords for me.
