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.

Certified ltr requesting NHTSA initiate a defect investigation re selected Ford Motor Company vehicles left front inner bearings for advanced fatigue cracks. Complainant was recently asked to consult in the matter of a fatal high speed head on two-vehicle collision. While driving westbound 2001 Ford Expedition veered into the oncoming lane and struck an eastbound 2000 Ford F250 long bed truck towing a 5th wheel travel trailer. The resulting collision killed the three occupants in the 2001 Expedition and the two occupants in the 2000 Ford F250 pickup truck. Metallurgical analysis showed that the left front inner bearing failed on the Explorer as a result of progressive fatigue. The bearing failure occurred at approximately 30,000 miles. Please reference ODI# 10139953 to obtain information on the 2000 Ford F250 pickup truck.
