Driving a Ford Explorer causes California Police Officer to Pass Out Behind the Wheel!! Officer Brian Mcdowell of the Newport Beach Police has filed a lawsuit against Ford Motor Company due to the fact that the Ford Explorer Police Interceptor he was driving leaked carbon monoxide exhaust gases into the cabin. He passed out and drove head-on into a tree. He suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result. Ford Motor Company settled a class action lawsuit in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida for an exhaust leak defect that emits highly unsafe levels of carbon monoxide into the cabins either through unsealed seams at the rear of the vehicle or as some reports state through the use of the air conditioning system. Ford Explorers from the years 2011 -2015 are listed as the affected models. Final financial numbers on that are still being worked out. However, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) received complaints of 154 occurrences for the Explorer that number has now jumped to over 450. And extending into model years 2016 of the Explorer. Ford has known about this since 2012. They state “This is not a safety risk” and “We’re working on it”.
