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

Expedition 4WD 8-cyl

My brakes have wore down very quickly and unevenly so I tried to replace my break pads and when I removed the old pad and replaced the new pad the caliper won't go back into place. As if it's stuck. And prior to changing my pads and my brakes wearing down, I've always had a loud scraping sound down near my brake, especially when ever I turn left. I checked with several local auto part dealers and they said they're all sold out of brakes due to that problem. They have been hearing a lot of the same complaint. In addition, there has always be an excessive amount of brake dust that accumulates very quickly, (over 6hrs).
