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

problem #1

Mar 312016

Expedition Eddie Bauer 5.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 134,000 miles


transmission shudders at 35-45 mph and again at 65 mph

We purchased this Expedition with 89k miles. It replaced another Expedition, 1999 XLT 4.6 with over 165000 miles after it was totaled. We loved the vehicle but we noticed some shudder in the transmission. We took it to a local repair place and he referred us to Arkansas Transmission in Springdale. After the rebuild, it seemed good to go. In the last three weeks (early May to now) the shudders became more prominent. We still love this vehicle as it fits our family well but we really rely on it and need it to run right. Any help or suggestions are welcome.
