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.

2006 Ford Expedition Owner Comments

problem #5

  • 46,000 miles


I have a 2006 Ford Expedition and my wife almost lost control and hit a car when the brakes went to the floor. The vehicle has had "spongy brakes" since I bought it and had it to the dealer twice. There is a tsb to replace the front caliper/rotor and pads and Ford did this but it still feels spongy and is now leaking fluid. This has been an issue on many Expedition and should have been a recall rather than a tsb. This is an incredibly dangerous situation when the brakes fail. I know I have had instances where I literally need to stand on the brakes to get the vehicle to stop.

August 21 on the way to work (4 mile drive) the truck started to shake and lost power, check engine light came on, we took the truck to the dealer, and they can not figure what is going on, so they said the engine needs to be replaced. The codes are P0022-P0305-P0307-P1184-P2198-P2273 my family just came back from a 3000 trip, I can only imagine having this happening to us during this time. I been looking for the same type of trouble to this trucks and found that there is a number of similar complaints about having to replace engines ranging from 38,000 miles to about 60,000miles. The price of this cars are well over $35,000 to having to spend another $7,000 with all the problems of our economy right now a normal person like me can not afford another rip off by one of the big companies, like Ford. All I'm asking is that they take responsibility for this engine troubles and repair like they supposed to.

Front rotors turned by dealer several weeks prior due to vibration when stopping. Same problem returned and dealer this time replaced rotors and calipers. Now brakes feel weak, and travel of pedal has increased before brakes engage. Dealer claims this is within normal operation. Dealer claims new calipers have larger piston so this is reason for increased pedel travel and different feel of brakes ? brakes do not feel as if stopping vehicle as before problem began. Returned again to ask dealer 3-19-07 to bleed system due to soft pedal and concern. System bled manually this time and pedal got some what better. Still not as firm as when problem started. Pedal travel increase is still present before brakes engage. Veh does not stop as well as before problem began.

: the contact stated while driving on ice at various speeds, the brakes lock up. The vehicle has been to the dealership, and the manufacturer determined this is how the advance track braking system is manufactured.

Expedition 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 230 miles
ABS, roll stability control and general brake system lights came on at time of delivery of new car. Dealer "fixed" problem. Same symptoms occurred approximately 50 miles after taking delivery of car. Dealer techs. Cannot provide information if it is faulty sensor or if there is, in fact a fault in the braking system. Brakes seem to work, but am unwilling to test ABS/rsc features with known problem with system.
