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.

  • 24,000 miles


I bought my 2005 Ford Expedition in March 2007 with 21K miles on it. I have had to replace 2 different injectors in 16 months because the vehicle will start cutting back and acting like it wants to cut off when it stops at a light. The most recent replacement came when I drove it 5 miles from home and it jerked continuously the entire inside of the vehicle smelled like gas very strongly as well as the exhaust. The truck stays parked most of the time because im too scared to drive it and its a gas hog!!!!!! the replacement of the injectors are not cheap!!!! the inside lights will come on and go off at anytime for no reason. I tap the brakes and they come on, I roll the window up or down and they come on. I have also had to replace the battery due to this happening even when the truck has been parked for hours. I have replaced the oxygen sensor and a coli pack. Its never ending and I feel like I should not have to continue to replace these things when I am obviously not the only one with this problem. Ford needs to step up and take responsibility for their crappy products. I have 5 more years @ $515 per month to pay for this piece of crap!!!!!!!!!!!!

George newcomb landers mclarty 2609 South walton bentonville, ar 72712 I purchased a 2005 Expedition from you a few weeks ago. On 11-23-05 I brought it over to have some defects repaired. Defects that were to be fixed. Transmission. When stopped on a hill if you remove your foot from the brake the vehicle will roll out of control. This happens if you are stopped with the vehicle in reverse going down a hill of in drive going up a hill. The transmission will shift at odd times as you are driving. Rear passenger dome light flickers when you turn in on with the switch in the back. Right turn signal flashes very fast. Tires are very bad out of balance. Driver door does not latch unless it is shut hard. I told jesse that they had to be done by 5:00 pm. After keeping the vehicle all day nothing was fixed. During my visit in your office on 12-9-05 you assured me that the transmission would be replaced. You also stated that Ford was aware of the bad tires and would replace them now that I had complained. In addition to the above the following new defects have been found. Turn signals will sometimes not work at all. When making a sharp turn the rear end will slip. You can fill it not holding the road. Outside fumes are sucked into the vehicle. Any smell or exhaust from this or other vehicles is pulled inside. The leather on the front seats has turned black. The transmission, rear end problem and tires are all major safety problems. These must be fixed. I feel that having my wife drive a vehicle with these problems is putting her in danger. The turn signals and light problem are possible fire hazards. The uncontrolled air intake is a problem that could cause people inside the vehicle to be gassed by a passing vehicle. My wife has very bad allergies when these smells are pulled into the vehicle she has trouble breathing. I have never owned anything made from leather that has changed colors.
