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.

Expedition 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,600 miles


The seats, mirrors & gauges all will readjust while you are driving down the road. My wife already had a near miss on the interstate when this happened. The Ford dealer. Andy mohr Ford says he can do nothing and the engineers are working on a fix. I have called the Ford customer service and wrote them 2 letters. It has been going on for 5 months now and no one will address the problem. They say it is a problem with all 2003 Expedition so I would think it would be a priority to fix.

problem #2

Dec 222002

Expedition 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 55 miles
The vehicle had an all-inclusive computer console on dashboard which controlled the functions of rear/side view mirrors and memory seats, etc. The console did not function properly, which caused the side view mirrors to be incorrectly positioned while driving. Dealer diagnosed defect with system, but advised there was no remedy or parts which existed to correct.

While driving at highway speeds advance track system light illuminated, then all electrical components started to flash. Heard a rattling noise, pulled over, turned off engine to see what problem was, and vehicle would not restart. Took vehicle to dealer, and they stated it was the alternator.
