The failure recurred numerous times. The contact stated the design of the driver and front passenger seat head restraints pushed the occupants head forward in an uncomfortable position. Rear curb weight 2,119 lbs. I've also tried raising the head rest to it's maximum extension, but that defeats the value of the head rest. The manufacturer not notified of the failure. Anti-lock brakes and AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control and Trailer Sway Control are standard on all Explorers, as are dual front, side seat and a full complement of airbags. The headrest angle is not adjustable.
A six-speed auto comes with the V-8, V-6 models get a five-speed. I have tried other work arounds, reclining the seats to make the head rest angle more acceptable, but this defeats the safety of the seat belt system. Safety equipment includes standard stability control with a rollover sensor, as well as Ford's Trailer Sway Control, which works to keep a towed trailer in line once it begins to pitch.

Only solution found was to remove or reverse head restraint, or to recline seat to severely reclined position. The front passenger seat headrests are pitched excessively forward causing extreme head and neck discomfort.
