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.

My sisters and I (3 of us) all have 2004 Ford Expeditions and all of us have leather seats that look awful, shredded, foam hanging out, etc. We all took care of the seats and treated the leather often so there is no excuse. Also, the trucks were garage kept. Within the first 6 months they started to crack and look bad. We all kept waiting for a recall, Ford needs to address these seats for they are horrid!

The leather is crumbling off. The 2nd row seat cushion had to be replaced on the Left passenger seat. Now I am having the same problem with Right passenger seat and the middle seat. Ford says it is normal wear. I only have 1 child and more people seat in my front seat more than the back. I will never buy a Ford vehicle again. I had a GMC Jimmy for 6 years and never had to replace the leather seats.

(reported on)

Expedition XLT 5.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 34,000 miles

I have had this vehicle for 2 1/2 years. After two months i had to take it back to the dealer to get the front seats fix because of the cracking leather. Over the course of 2 1/2 years its been back 10 times to have various other seat panels replaced. Now by replacing them so many times Ford knows that there is a problem with them. On my 11th trip to the dealer to have the cracked leather seats replaced again a Ford rep was there and said its normal wear. Now Ford customer service is standing by this decision and not replacing cracked leather on a vehicle that is still under the bumper to bumper warranty.
