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

Dec 042007

Expedition 4WD

  • Automatic transmission
  • 49,511 miles


I have a 2005 Ford Expedition, eddie bauer. Most recently (2 weeks ago), my check electronic throttle light came on, I called my local dealer and planned to take it in the next day. I work close to home and have limited driving distance. On the way home, the throttle went completely out and the vehicle cut off on the side of the road and was unable to be restarted and had to be towed. My local dealer did fix it in a timely manner. However...this is not the first problem. We bought it brand new and within a month the fuel injector went out when I was coming back home from out of town, my drivers side seat adjustment went out twice and had to be replaced. I am short and had to drive with my seat all the way back. 2 cam phasers had to be replaced back in the summer and then most recently this. I have 2 small children and would prefer a dependable vehicle. I filed a formal complaint with Ford and heard from them today of which I was told that having 49,000 miles on my vehicle it was not unusual for parts to go bad. I live on a hard surface road and drive to work, normal day to day activities and of course vacation. The only thing they would do was upgrade my warranty to cover the transmission. It already has the extended warranty. I am disappointed they would not stand by their product. I have owned 2 toyoyta's in the past and plan to go back to a Toyota and a Ford could not be given to me again.
