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.

2003 Ford Expedition Owner Comments

problem #4

Jun 132015

Expedition EB 5.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles


A/C just stopped blowing cold air. Had freon added and no change. Replaced dryer, expansion valve and accumulator...nothing. This car is junk. I've had two engines replaced the first out of pocket because the recall was not active. Now it takes forever to turn over when starting it. After that the entire steering column had to be replaced out of pocket. Now there is a recall on that. Its constantly one thing after the other with this piece of junk!!!! Hyundai needs to refund everybody's money on these cars.

Expedition Eddie Bauer 5.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 62,573 miles

My battery died. I jumped the car off and I had two problems. 1, the A/C unit was blowing hot air full blast. 2, the control head went out and I couldn't shut it off. They said the "low voltage" from the battery might have caused this problem - who know....
