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.

2003 Ford Expedition Owner Comments

In March 2012 our 2003 Ford Expedition would not start and left my wife stranded. After having it towed to FireStone they discovered it was a fuse that caused the vehicle not to start. After replacing the fuse they recommend we take it to a Ford Dealership because they also felt there was a lot of excess wiring. Well, we did take it to a Ford Dealership and they stated there wasn't any excess wiring and their machinery showed no electrical faults. Well, a couple of months later my wife and grandson, this time, were left stranded. Took it back to the Ford Dealership for repair. They said it was fixed. 2 months later my wife is stranded again, but this time we figured out what fuse it was a brought it at Auto Zone. The Dealership says they don't know what it is, but can replace the Alternator/Starter for $500, but that's no guarantee the problem will be fixed. Now, is it me or does that sound crazy? I wrote the corporate office and they referred me back to the local office. Talk about passing the BUCK. I wrote NHTSA and it doesn't appear they're going to do much. I'm trying you guys and the local news for help to this problem. There's a blogger site of Ford Expedition problems and one person stated initiating a class action suit. Is that a good idea? I just want my vehicle fixed so my wife, who drives it the most doesn't get stranded on a long road trip. The local dealer told me I might just want to purchase a new vehicle - WOW
