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.

2005 Ford Expedition Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 032010


  • 97,600 miles


While driving on two different occasions a message has appeared on my instrument panel saying, "check electronic throttle control." When this happens I immediately lose my acceleration. Both times I was on a hill and thank goodness I did not lose braking ability as described by others. When you are on a hill in a vehicle of this size it is nearly impossible to maneuver to a safe location. The first time this occurred was November 27, 2009 and again yesterday, January 3, 2010. I am almost 6 months pregnant and Transport 4 young children to and from school. After researching this problem online, I have discovered that this is a very common problem on the 2005 Ford Expedition. I am very afraid that someone is going to be seriously injured or killed by this failure. I have read many reports on here dating back more than a year and I am curious as to what it takes to have this recalled. Heaven forbid someone loses their life.
