“Federal regulators are investigating a possible defect in Ford Explorers following scores of complaints about exhaust and carbon monoxide pouring into the passenger compartments of the SUVs.   The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said it had received 154 complaints from owners of 2011 to 2015 Explorers.   According to the agency, the owners said the problem occurs when the vehicle is running at full throttle, such as while climbing hills or using the air conditioning system in recirculation mode.  Along with noxious fumes in the cabin, owners have reported cases of vomiting and nausea, often involving children and pets seated in the back, where the exhaust enters the vehicle. The exhaust leak was also blamed for one low-speed crash, the NHTSA said, although no injuries were reported.”


The number of complaints has increased more than sixfold since then. Ford has issued two bulletins to dealers on how to fix the leaks, but owners report little or no improvement.”
