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 advance trac light was intermittently on, now it is on constant, the vehicle even shifts into 4X4 when it is not needed (dry roads).

My 2004 Ford Expedition has had a problem since we bought it from the dealer. The advancetrac will engage on dry surfaces and smooth roads. It will happen anytime of year when the road is dry and should have no reason for turning on. I almost crashed October 31 2007, the ABS turned on and I could not steer, I slowly came to a stop in on the wrong side of the road. It was hard to stop while the ABS was still engaged the whole time. I then turned off the advancetrac and I drove right to the dealer and told them to fix it. I have taken this car in many times to phil long Ford they could never get the car to engage for them. It has happened more than I ever want to count. They have replaced a couple of different things but it still has this problem. Thank you for your time!!
