NHTSA is looking onto exhaust leaks Ford Explorer

Article by Christian A., on June 24, 2014

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is reviewing complaints over exhaust fumes or strange odors penetrating the cabins of MY2011-2014 Ford Explorer SUVs. NHTSA spokesman Jose Alberto Ucles told Automotive News in an e-mailed statement that the agency is reviewing all available data and will take appropriate action as warranted.

NHTSA, however, did not call the move as a defect investigation, and has not listed the matter as a formal probe on its Web site. Ford spokeswoman Kristina Adamski told Automotive News in an e-mail that Ford is confident in its current methods in quickly identifying and addressing potential issues.

She said that when data suggests a safety recall is needed, Ford will move quickly on behalf of customers. NHTSA recently closed a two-year-old investigation into power steering problems in late-model Ford Explorers, which indicates that the agency was satisfied with the carmaker’s recent move to call back the SUV.

Ford announced late May that would recall MY2011-2013 195,527 Explorers as part of an effort that already covers almost 1.39 million units. NHTSA closed its “preliminary evaluation” of the Explorer on June 12, 2014.
