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.

2002 Ford Expedition Owner Comments

The contact owns a 2002 Ford Expedition. He states that the doors will actually lock them in the vehicle even though the child safety switches are turned off. The switches are defective so when passengers in the vehicle pull the handle to get out the doors will automatically lock. This involves both locks in the back of the vehicle. Updated 12/07/05.
