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.

I was driving on a two lane highway, fm 185. I was driving northeast while the other driver was somewhat stopped heading West, trying to turn South onto cattle drive. The other driver was stopped at an intersection awaiting to turn left. The other driver turned left in front of me as I was headed straight. The initial impact was driver's front side and then down the drivers side door. We hit, and then my vehicle did a 180 degree turn which turned my vehicle around facing my initial path of direction. My airbags did not deploy. I had curtain side airbags, driver, and passenger air bags as well. The airbags of the car causing the accident did deploy.

Expedition

  • 120,000 miles
2006 Ford Expedition (law enforcement package) with steel wheels and approx. 120,000 miles; wheel separation (cracked along weld). Prior to the failure, this vehicle was used daily for routine law enforcement patrol duties. We have had this issue on several 2006 Expedition. Upon learning of the potential for the wheel failure, we have implemented procedures to inspect the wheels for cracks and other damage regularly. In all cases, there have been no obvious warning signs before failure. This problem was discovered when the officer noticed a flat tire prior to starting his shift for the day. Upon finding the cracked wheel a new replacement wheel was installed on the vehicle.

Tire rim failure on a 2006 Ford Expedition used by a U.S. forest service law enforcement officer. The vehicle currently has 88,607 miles. After report 10307412, we completed a fleet wide inspection of Ford vehicles with steel wheels. This is the 4th incident of this nature to occur within 2 years. The other 3 times the failure occurred on other Ford Expedition. Reports were filed here. See complaint 10286279, 10307412. Based on prior 3 failures, a unit-08 forest wide inspection of Ford vehicles with steel wheels is underway. I currently have two rims with typical rim failure at the bead face weld from two different vehicles. Please advise if photo documentation is required. After inspection by Ford technician, all 4 wheels were replaced. Recommend Ford initiate a recall on steel wheel for crack inspection associated with 2003 and newer Ford vehicles with steel wheels.

A 17" tire rim on a 2006 Ford Expedition has failed for the second time. The first failed rim was replaced by Ford Motor Co. With a new rim and now only a couple of months later this second rim has failed. The weld has failed on the rim causing separation and a serious safety hazard for any vehicle occupants.
