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 #1

Expedition 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 42,000 miles


: the consumer exited the driver's seat, left the front door open and opened the back door to place some items in the back. Unaware her 5 year old daughter had climbed over the front seat and sat in the driver's seat facing the open door, the consumer opened the back door farther to exit and then shut the door. When she shut the door the child's hand was caught in the door, her left hand ring finger was crushed, almost severed by the hinge that hooks the door to the vehicle. When the consumer opened the door it crushed her finger and when the consumer closed the door it released her finger.
