2nd row seats

I have an Sel and 2nd row buckets which do not move fore/aft, but they do recline enough to take a snooze. They don't recline as much as the fronts, but they are probably just as comfy. As mentioned in other replies the centre consul flips back to open or forward to give a flat surface. Infact, the ...

Re: rear door locks

You have to learn to live with it. They say its progress, I say no. However, many years ago I knew a family, whose kids were jumping out of the vehicle long before it stopped. These same kids put a car in drive (in winter) and drove through the store window while dad was buying cigarettes inside. Th...

What I traded in

I traded in a blue '01 explorer 4X4 with very little mileage or I should say Km. I don't remember how many, maybe 20,000Km. It was the biggest mistake buying a vehicle. To understand why. I have to go back a bit. Before the Explorer I had an XL Aerostar '92 bought as a buyback. It was an extended mo...

Kilomrtreage

Sorry, I forgot to mention, my vehicle is an AWD SEL six passenger and living in Saskatchewan, Canada, it's almost all flat very few hills. We drive about 70% highway and 30% city (small city at that). We are both non-aggressive drivers. However, this is a fun car for passing. It doesn't let the gra...

interior reading lights

I have always been blinded by people using any interior lights at night while I am driving. I really don't think these lights are meant for reading. like a book or magazine, etc. These lights were meant to be used to find something, check a map or address, etc. The person turning on the light should...

'73 Vega in Saskatchewan

Actually I bought that '73 vega hatchback new in '73 and when the winter snow came I couldn't go anywhere, no traction at all, I almost cried what a waste of $3500.00. Then I thought of studded grip tires which cost me another $50.00. Suddenly I could go somewhere and actually without much trouble. ...

Daytime Running Lights

I'm from Canada and I have DRL standard in my Freestyle SEL AWD with a new feature I didn't have before like my 01 Explorer and Chev Cavalier. Before the DLRs would stay on all the time the engine was running unless you did some unusual things. Now the DLRs turn off after a few seconds unless you pu...

Yesterday I finally installed my class lll receiver hitch from etrailer.com. and manufactured by hidden hitch. Install time said 40 minutes, yea right, it took me much longer than that because of lacking instructions and my inexperience. It fits like a glove with no room to spare, very solid an for ...

Autolocks act abnormally

I have a problem with the auto locks in my Freestyle which I don't like. When the car stops and people want to exit, the front doors are no problem, use the door handle and exit, but the rear doors are a problem. They do not unlock with the handle. One has to either use the front unlock button, use ...
