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 2005 Ford Expedition with just 62,000 miles on it has chipping and bubbling paint on the rear lift gate and the hood. Talked to my local Ford dealer and they said that their was an issue with the aluminum prior to painting these two parts at the factory. Ford is not standing behind this defect.

The contact owns a 2005 Ford Expedition. He stated that the paint on the trunk and hood of the vehicle were covered with rust and began peeling. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who took pictures of the vehicle and mailed them to the Ford manufacturer. The manufacturer stated responded to the photos stating that they would not repair the vehicle because he was the second owner. There were no related recalls. The VIN was not available. The failure mileage was 39,000.

I have a 2005 Ford Expedition that has paint bubbling in different areas. I did some research on-line and found that Ford issued a technical service bulletin 04-25-1 in 2004 and another bulletin 06-25-1 in 2006 that explains that prior to painting, iron particles contaminated the aluminum panel which causes the paint bubbles down the road. In my research on-line, I found that Ford is not taking care of their customers, but some dealers are covering some of the repairs under a "goodwill policy". I contacted a lawyer that specializes in lemon-law, and he suggested I file this complaint. He says if enough people complain, it may force Ford to take action and take care of their customers. I did contact my dealership, and they say they never heard of this problem. I am past my 3 year warranty, so they say it is not covered.

The paint is bubbling and peeling on the hood and rear lift gate. This problem started and keeps getting worse. The paint has already came off in a 1 inch section. I could send I a piece of the paint to a lab if needed. Car was never in accident of re-painted.
