Reports of exhaust fume illness & injuries force Ford to send letters & offer free repairs to 1.3 million

November 16, 2017

Over a million Ford Explorer owners, ranging from the 2011 to 2017 models, will be receiving letters from Ford offering free repairs to an issue some are saying is unsafe and potentially deadly.


Ford is issuing these repair offers on a voluntary basis, but only after multiple sources began reporting owners who claimed carbon monoxide illnesses and injuries due to minor accidents they blame on possible poisoning. This is no small matter. The number of reports of illness has exceeded 2,000, and includes 41 injuries.

Ford says their own testing has not found dangerous levels of carbon monoxide, but they are issuing the free repairs as a precautionary measure.  


One former owner has launched a website to try and generate a push for a full recall. Click here to visit.
