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.

2001 Ford Expedition Owner Comments

problem #3

Mar 252006

Expedition 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 106,000 miles


Since purchase I have traveled 80000 miles and have replaced the rotors 3 times and the pads 4 times on the front. The most current time the vehicle shakes so bad when I apply the brake that I have to alter my driving while stopping to avoid colliding with other vehicles. I have purchased the high heat rotors and ceramic pads to have the best possible parts on the vehicle and it still eats them up too often.
