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

Feb 212008

Expedition 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Ford Expedition. The contact cannot inserted the nozzle into the fuel tank to place gas in the vehicle, but the gas blew back out at him and he stated that it took 25 minutes to fill up the vehicle. Ford stated that the repair would cost at least $500. The dealer would have to remove and reinstall the fuel tank. The manufacturer stated that nothing could be done and advised the contact to call NHTSA and file a complaint. The current and failure mileages were 60,000. Updated 04/02/08. The consumer was informed that engineers had installed a hose on the fuel system that relocated fumes away from the fill tube. Their explanation was that the hose may have been frozen and not allowing the tank to vent. Updated
