It's to bad I didn't get the same treatment from Mazda about all the problems I've been having. In Canada there's an arbitration program setup through the Better Business Bureau. They didn't think replacing an engine, many problems with the rear wiper breaking down, coolant reservoir needed replaced, headlights, rear hatch need to be centered properly, many leaks in windshield, and rear hatch, and now the control arms and some other part is worn down on the suspension. 2002 Tribute with 50000 km's to many problems. That's what I get for buying a Ford product! FOUND ON ROAD DEAD is right! I had better luck with my 94 Chev. Cavalier with 220000 km's on it and not one problem. Like you said you were lucky....that's for sure.
Am I supposed to expect that the safety features will actually work if I need them! Give me a break. I can't wait to get rid of this peace of junk. Good luck with the Explorer.

#2507 of 4149 Window Air Noise
Jul 15, 2004 (7:23 pm)
My 2004 Tribute has a pronounced wind noise on the passenger side of the vehicle. The dealer has worked on it for a week and is unable to subside the noise. They say is it is a characteristic of the 2004 model. The frame was corrected on the 2005 model to reduce this noise, per the dealer. Any 2004 owners hearing more noise on the right side than the left side of the front passenger areas?

2001 ES, Automatic, 2WD, 90K miles, $8900. Is it a good deal? How many more miles I can drive on this truck?
#2509 of 4149 Tires wearing out & used price

I believe my tires are Continental and they still look new after 23,000 miles.
According to Edmunds Appraiser, $8,900 is a good price for a 2001.
#2510 of 4149 $8,900 good price?

Maybe for a base model stripped of everything. But then you have us Rizzites out here. And also the people that add / modify some of the equipment to increase the value of the vehicle.
Rizzite = Uses the Rizzo Method (I myself included)

Seems like I have the same type of whining noise with my 2005 Escape XLT 4x4. The noise occurs ~ 65-70mph only. The dealer and Ford engineer can't figure out the problem, so they claim the noise may be normal. Did you ever find out what the problem really is?
