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.

problem #2

Expedition 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 120,000 miles


An original equipment never changed spark plug on my 2002 Ford Expedition suddenly and without warning blew off my engine, stripping the threads on the engine block. Prior to this failure, the engine was running well and without problems.

problem #1

  • Automatic transmission
  • 97,000 miles
My 2002 Ford Expedition experienced an electrical malfunction due to a liquid build up in its system. The dealership said they could not determine how the moisture was entering the vehicle. The audio system and windshield wipers would not operate in the reverse or drive positions. The vehicle was returned to the dealership twice, on the last occasion, a small fire started, resulting in the starter being burned up. No injuries occurred, but the dealership charged me $1065.70 on the first repair bill, and $335 on the second repair bill. An explanation or sensible solution was not given for correcting the problem.
