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.

While driving headlights dimmed. Then, passenger's side window fell out.

problem #2

Expedition 4WD

Rear window "exploded" outwards without warning. It was not hit, the weather was cool. The blowout pattern sent 99% of the glass into the street a distance of 30 feet or more. Very little glass was inside the car. I have heard of other incidents of this happening in the Expedition/Navigator models. Is this in fact a model specific or design problem.
