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.

2001 Ford Expedition Owner Comments

Expedition 8-cyl

I just purchased a 2001 Ford Expedition eddie bower edition and the front end squeaks. So I accessed this site and found several complaints about the same condition. After reading these complaints, I am worried that mine will do the same thing. I'm considering parking the vehicle and never using it again. Someone needs to force Ford to recall these vehicles and have them repair the problems before someone gets hurt. To have the front end repaired on my Expedition would cost at least $1500 or more. I am on disability and cannot afford these repairs. This is a manufacture defect and needs to be addressed as such. All vehicles are supposed to be designed with the safety of, not only the passengers in mind, but also other vehicles on the road. The cost of the repairs to Ford Motor Company would be minor compared to the loss of life and to the damages to humans and vehicle(s) in an accident. I don't want to get rid of my Expedition, I just want it safe and to be repaired properly.

Expedition 8-cyl

I am having various electrical issues ranging from check engine light going on periodically with codes not stored when checked, on, dome light in the car not turn on when driver door opened, radio not working when key is in on position, dash lights go off intermittently. One night during a very heavy rain storm the alarm went off and we were unable to disable for over 30 mins. Had to remove the battery for the beeping to stop. When we checked the next day, inside the vehicle was a puddle of water on the dashboard & droplets were coming from the top drivers side of the windshield. Also noticed that water was streaming down from inside a handle on the frame by side of the windshield on driver side. Unaware of global windshield/seal issues with Ford we proceeded to have the windshield replaced. At the time we were unaware of any additional damage. Shortly after while driving we began to experience various episodes of the car revving itself up, as if it was in control of its own speed, making it difficult to control the car. During these episodes of acceleration the car temperature & oil gauges registered at overheated levels & many times the dash lights would go off. In this case I pulled over and turned the car off. After a couple of minutes when I turned the car on, the car was back to normal as if nothing had happened. Typically when this happened although the check engine light was lit, when I took the car in to be serviced by the dealer I was told no error codes were stored in the vehicle. This vehicle continues to self accelerate and rev up intermittently. At present I need to have the car smogged for renewal but the vehicle system readiness test register incomplete and there are no faulty codes listed. I have read that various owners experience these conditions which has been caused by water leak into the fuse box and the GEM due to the windshield seal failure.
