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

problem #1

Jun 152006

Expedition 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 29,300 miles


Vehicle with 29,300 miles. Lightly driven, well maintained, inspected, tires checked & oil changed March of 2006. Borrowed my mom's Expedition. (big mistake), leaving the houston area headed for saint louis we got about 200+ miles before the tread came off. Tomball Ford, Ford company & Continental / General Grabber tires changed our lives. Headed in bound in the right or center lane a grassy steep median seperated the South bound traffic. Felt a small bump so I took my foot off the accelerator to slow down & lightly braked to pull over to the right, I didn't have a chance to hit the brake when the right rear passenger tire tread came off, tried maintaining a straight direction to slow the vehicle down, but being so top heavy no matter how hard I tried it shot toward the median leaning to the passenger side where my teenage son was. Thank god he partially laid back his seat & seat belt on. When it rolled on the passenger side, from this point I am told (we both hit our heads & were unconcious) SUV shot out of the median upside down onto another car we contined to roll across the S-bound lanes & came to a stop facing East. Airbags didn't delploy, all windows were busted out(xcpt 2), driver door is the only door that opened. My son & I are thankful, I received staples to the back of my head, I have to have an mri on my head & neck, son has to have his shoulder & hip checked. Drivers seat broke loose, entire dash was destroyed. People in the other car were visiting from another country (I'm filled with sorrow & a lot of counseling ahead of me) their families are in my prayers & thoughts daily, two of the people in the other car passed away upon impact. I didn't know another car was involved. An er lady was talking about the wreck, mentioned 2 people died. I was thinkng no we didn't we are right here. I got the medic there to give me the details. All due to a faulty tire that had problems 00 & 01 model owners were notified but not 02 owners. P275/grabbers.
