Ford Explorer Owners Say Their SUVs Are Making Them Sick

That's a very informative read, thanks for sharing.

What struck me (hard) was how long this has been going on (years), and the scale of the complaints including multiple police departments, multiple lawsuits, multiple investigations, over 100 "goodwill" buybacks from Ford, and the seriousness of the defect and yet what we have been hearing about in the media is how Tesla's have uneven body panel gaps!
