    Toyo Open Country HTD

    I have 61,100 on these original tires (2018 MAX Limited) and looking to replace them. Not too much info about them on the internet but they are still available through Big O, Discount Tire, etc. at ~$880 installed OTD. They are smooth, quiet, nice riding tires - which, by all accounts are what...

    Sirius XM Channels

    I have a 2018 Expedition MAX Limited with Sirius XM. I have the "all access" subscription but am unable to tune to channel 208 "PGA Tour Radio". Called Sirius several times, done the refresh thing, still nothing. My station list only goes up to channel 184. Just found some info about possible...

    RU Kidding Me?

    So I'm having the cam phasers and timing chains, etc. replaced on my 2018 next week; which is already making me wonder about keeping this rig long term. The dealer service agent asks "do you want to include an oil change as part of the service?" I said absolutely - it would be nuts to tear...

    3.5L EcoBoost Engine Lube

    Do you use petroleum or synthetic oil? I'm having my cam phasers and timing chain replaced on my 2018 and had meant to ask the Ford dealership which is the best option. With oil changes being quite important on the EcoBoost engines (often cited as a source of problem on cam phasers/timing...

    2018 Brake Pad Replacement

    I have 45000 miles on my 2018 and the rear pads are in the "red", front in "yellow" as noted by service tech during oil change. While I can likely get more mileage out of them, I'm going to go ahead and have them replaced by the Ford dealer here in Yuma. I'm curious what other 2018 owners...

    Design Miscue

    I was looking at the backend of an Explorer and then an Edge yesterday at a traffic light and thought, "man those dual exhausts look nice". What was the Expedition Team thinking when they signed off at final design review? :yucky: I fully expected the 2019 model year to get changed...anyone...

    Memory Seats

    My wife was using the car today and asked if it's normal that the driver seat returns to the #1 position each time she turns off the car - requiring her to push #2 each time she restarted? It seems odd they would use such logic, but then one dosen't have to look far to raise eyebrows about some...

    Pooch in the Rig

    So we're on our first long trip traveling with our yellow lab and he loves it. A minor issue we're having is that if we leave him in the car and lock the doors, he sets off the alarm (motion sensor). Yea, I know, someone's just bound to flip out about leaving a dog in a car - but we've cared...

    Gear Indicator on Panel

    My neighbor has a 2018 F150 and while we were driving to fish last week, his instrument panel showed the gears (1-10), in a vertical line just left of the speedometer, with the active gear shown lit. He told me it was in the advanced settings, but thus far, I've not been able to find that...

    Annoying Horn

    I'm not seeing anything in the OM about deactivating the two horn beep when locking doors with the fob. I know if you push the door lock button once it does not sound, but if you push it twice it does. My Dodge truck has an option to silence the horn - anyone know if this can be done on the...

    Bang & Olufsen

    I'm curious what others think of the B&O stereo system in their Expeditions. It sure fills the vehicle with sound, but I'm still on the fence as to whether this upgrade feature is that much better than several other vehicles I've been in. I adjusted it while on the long road trip back from CO...

    Nav/Control Touchscreen

    I think I'm reading in the owner's manual that the ability to use the touchscreen is locked out if the vehicle is moving at 3+ mph? Is this correct or might it be something the prior owner set using the MyKey? Are any of you able to use the touchscreen while driving? I haven't been able to...

    Ford Explorer Forum

    Does anyone know if this same website has a Explorer forum? I did a quick search and found several others but they do not appear to be managed by this site. We're thinking about a newer Explorer as my wife's fulltime vehicle.

    Touch-up Paint?

    It used to be years ago that many new cars came with a small bottle of touch-up paint... not so these days. I found the paint color code on the door jam sticker, but wonder who would be the best source? Should I just get at a Ford dealer or are their some reliable aftermarket suppliers? I found...

    Rear Windows

    My brothers 2017 EL has rear windows that can be slightly cracked open (about 2 inches). We were chatting yesterday via phone about the model years and asked whether I'd used these. Not finding the button where he described, and then looking at the windows, it became clear my 2018 does not...

    Lighting Option on Extended Warranty?

    The FloodESP warranty I just purchased has an $80 option to cover all interior and exterior lights over the 8/125000. As with any warranty item, I pay the first $100. With seemingly everything on these new vehicles being more expensive these days, I'm thinking one HID headlamp replacement or an...

    WeatherTech Floor Mats

    Hey all. I have have these in my Dodge truck and they are great. Fit like a glove (no floppy edges) and wear like armor. Anyone purchased these for their 2018? How well do they fit? Also, I have the Stone Grey exterior with the Medium Stone interior. Carpet is a black/grey color and I'm...

    Sensitive Door Locks

    So I was washing the car today and noticed that the water from the hose spray nozzle was activating the "intelligent Access" door sensors. It kept locking/unlocking and turning on the parking lamps. Maybe next time I'll leave the key FOB outside the 3 ft. sensor range. Anyone else experience...

    Certified Used?? Rental/Lease??

    I see a fair number of 2018's listed with Ford dealerships under their "certified vehicle" program. Considering the many new and expensive to repair features in late year vehicles, having some additional warranty coverage seems wise. I'm sure it is baked into the asking price but, depending on...

    Hello All. My name is Bill and we live in Montana. We've owned Fords in the past; a 1988 Ranger and a 1998 Ford Explorer. Both were great vehicles. We're now in the market for a large SUV and the Expedition MAX is at the top of our list. I'm hoping the forum can help answer some questions...

    2018 Expedition Max

    Hello Forum. This is my first post on the site. My wife and I are considering the purchase of an Expedition MAX. My brother purchased a used 2017 and really loves it. I drove it once from Scottsdale to Yuma and was very impressed with the ride and performance. We prefer lighter colored...
