I have a 2021 Explorer Limited with :
  • HILL START ASSIST
  • INTELLIGENT 4WD - TERRAIN MANAGEMENT W/ 7 SELECTABLE DRIVE MODES
  • TRANSMISSION - 10-SPEED AUTOMATIC
  • 2.3L ECOBOOST® ENGINE WITH AUTO START-STOP TECHNOLOGY
I have had a few odd issues with the shifting dial not being in the right gear, but recently it got worse. I pulled into a parking lot, parked the car, and started getting out. The car started driving forward. We stopped the car when my passenger reached under to hit the brake pedal. We couldn't put it into gear - any gear - until we used the key fob to "restart" it.

There is the rollaway recall, but I don’t think my transmission “broke” it is still drivable.

I was told by a friend that his Lincoln had a recall for this issue a few years back, but wondering if anyone has heard of the issue with 2021 Explorers?

The shift dial is a terrible design.
