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 #2

Apr 182016


  • miles


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.

  • 102,000 miles
The contact owns a 2002 Ford Expedition. While driving at low speeds and attempting to accelerate, the tires wobbled. In addition, the front and rear of the vehicle were unstable. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic who stated that all four rims were bent. The vehicle was taken to another independent mechanic who diagnosed that the belts and bands were worn for all four tires and that all four tires could have blown out. The mechanic stated that the front passenger side tire was frayed to the point that it could blow out and needed to be replaced. All four tires were replaced. The manufacturer was notified of the failures. The approximate failure mileage was 102,000.
