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.

The vehicle was driven earlier that day for about 2 to 3 miles and then it was parked inside a private mobile home park. After 30 to 45 minutes had passed, an explosion was heard outside the mobile home park; the vehicle exploded and was on fire. The explosion occurred in the hood and now it is a total loss. This occurred on April 18th, 2016. We contacted the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and they informed us that a recall back in 2005 was issued. The Ford Motor Company has not helped us out in this accident.

Expedition

  • 145,000 miles
On the evening of July 7th, 2015 at approximately 10:45 P.M. we heard a commotion outside our apartment complex and discovered my '02 Expedition fully on fire and being doused by the local fire department. It had just come back from repairs that afternoon - to the pigtail switch and re-wiring in the steering column due to loss of turn signals and radio. Not only was my car destroyed, but the cars on either side were damaged, as well as damage to the apartment complex. We retained an attorney and our initial report from the fire department stated the cause as "faulty wiring." The private fire investigator we retained has advised our attorney that the fire is due to the flawed cruise control system that has been the cause of hundreds of other fires in Ford vehicles.we intend to pursue this matter legally and would sincerely appreciate any assistance or advise your office can provide.

During inspection it was noticed that the upper and lower rear control arms were rusted through and unsafe. Had them replaced including the rusted through shocks. Hood and roof paint shows serious paint peeling and bubbling.
