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

I have a 2005 Ford Expedition limited. My complaint is the throttle body failure. When driving down the road, the engine will shut down and you loose all power to the vehicle. I have had this happen at speeds of 55+ mph as well as speeds of approx less than 10 mph, such as while in a parking lot. This problem started in the summer of 2009, and has happened every month since, sometimes several times during the month. We took the vehicle to have it tested and were told it was a tps sensor. That has been replaced ($75) but the problem is still happening. I have done some research on this and it is an ongoing problem with the 2005 Expedition. I personally know of 2 other people that have had the same problem and have had to have the entire throttle body replaced, one of which has had it replaced twice now. This is a huge concern since you do loose all power and have to try to coast to the side of the road, while trying to avoid being hit by other vehicles on the road. My concern is that when this happens, the result will be a accident while trying to get the vehicle to the side of the road. The repair cost for just the parts is $600, but this does not include the labor. Ford needs to recall this part before someone does die or is seriously injured, as it is a huge safety concern. Ford and their dealers are aware of the problem, yet the only resolution is to have the consumer pay for the repairs. I am afraid to drive my vehicle now because of this problem. I do not have the old tps sensor, but the vehicle is still doing this and do still have the throttle body that is bad on the vehicle for inspection. When this happens, the information center in the dash tells you to "check electronic throttle cable".
