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.

2004 Ford Expedition Owner Comments

Expedition 6-cyl

I own a 2004 Ford Expedition XLT, the vehicle has had the locking mechanism in the seat-belts fail 2 different times on two different seats. The first was the front passenger in the first quarter of 2006. The second time is this month September of 2006 and it is the right passenger on the second row seat. Both times I have taken the vehicle back to the car dealership to have the mechanism replaced. There are 8 seat belts in total since 2 have already failed I am concerned about their effectiveness.
