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.

Out of the blue the vehicle starts braking really hard, making loud banging noise, and shaking. It used to be once in a great while but now it's everytime I drive my vehicle, sometimes I can't stop my vehicle. This is very dangerous in traffic. I've taken to the Ford dealership multiple times yet my problem persists.

I purchased this vehicle used on 04/15/2011. We normally drive approximately 35 mph around the island. In August of 2012, the brake master cylinder failed at 90,000miles and was replaced on 08/08/2012 by the service dept at mike shad Ford/autonation, orange park, fl. On 04/12/2013, the brake master cylinder failed and again had to be replaced, this time by paul clark Ford, yulee, fl. On 03/13/2014, while taking my daughter to school, the brakes failed. I was able to steer out of a collision. I took the vehicle to the nearest Ford dealership; paul clark Ford, yulee, fl. The master cylinder needs replaced a third time; however, the part is on back-order with no known repair date. I contacted Ford customer relations on 03/14/2014 who stated there were no tsb on this part. I highly recommend that this be investigated before fatality occurs. 3rd brake master cylinder failure within year and a half.

Expedition 8-cyl

  • 34,900 miles
Brakes were applied and the brake pedal went to the floor and slightly vibrated. After initial application of the brakes, upon next application of pressure on the brake pedal, the brakes then engaged. No code or any indication by the vehicles safety messages were given, no check brakes or anything. There is a recall for ABS brakes on the 2008 model dated November of 2007 and this vehicle was a late production run of the '07's and delivered on 8/28/2007 so perhaps the same issue affected some models from '07. Issue has been reported to corporate level @ Ford Motor Company.
