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 #4

Jan 152007

(reported on)

Expedition Eddie Bauer 5.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles


The reflective material on the door mirrors go black and you can no longer see out of them. My brother-in-law had the same year model and had the same problem. These mirrors cost $250 each to replace. This should be a mandatory recall.

My passenger mirror turned totally black, of course it wasn't covered under warranty because the motor or wiring wasn't bad, I told the service tech what the F--k good is it if I can't see out of it.

Ford denies any knowledge of this problem--yet the NHTSA website shows a long list of investigations for defective mirrors. It's obviously a manufacturing defect and a huge safety issue. FORD NEEDS TO RECALL THESE MIRRORS IMMEDIATELY!!!

problem #1

(reported on)


  • 45,000 miles

Originally reported in May 2000, Ford Pasadena was to call when parts were in, no call.

Problem got worse.

Out of Warranty - now I have to pay. Ford people react "oh its the mirrors again" They obviously know this is a problem. I wonder why there was no recall.
