Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

problem #1

May 202005

Excursion 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,000 miles
The transmission in our 05' Ford Excursion slips and when it finally goes into gear, it jerks really hard. The electrical unit does not always work, the windows will not roll down, the locks will not lock nor unlock, the radio will not turn on. We have had it on the Ford dealership for repair 4 different times and it still is not repair, we still have all these problems.
