TOOK OUR 2005 FORD EXPLORER TO SERVICE DEPT. BEFORE WARRANTY EXPIRED-PREVIOUSLY ALEXANDER FORD, NOW FORD OF MURFREESBORO. THE TRANSMISSION HAD BEEN SLIPPING PERIODICALLY AT THE TIME. THEY DROVE IT & SAID NOTHING WAS NOTICEABLE. I INDICATED TO THEM THAT IT SLIPPED MAYBE ONCE OR TWICE EVERY MONTH OR SO. NOW VEHICLE IS OUT OF WARRANTY. I WAS DRIVING IN TRAFFIC AND THE TRANSMISSION SLIPPED ON ME. I HAD A CAR IN FRONT OF ME & WHEN IT FINALLY LET UP, I ALMOST HIT THE VEHICLE IN FRONT OF ME-WITH A BABY IN A CAR SEAT IN THE BACK SEAT. WHEN I SLAMMED ON MY BREAKS AFTER THE TRANSMISSION KICKED IN, I SUFFERED WHIPLASH. IT SCARED ME TO DEATH. THERE APPEAR TO BE SO MANY TRANSMISSION PROBLEMS WITH THE 2005 EXPLORERS. THIS IS DANGEROUS AND SOMEONE SHOULD DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT FOR A RECALL. THEY SHOULD HAVE CHECKED MY VEHICLE OUT MORE EXTENSIVELY RATHER THAN BARELY DRIVE IT FOR A FEW MINUTES WHEN IT WAS UNDER WARRANTY. I COULD HAVE INJURED A CHILD & I DID INJURE MYSELF.
