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.

2008 Ford Expedition Owner Comments

Expedition 4WD 8-cyl

I have a 2008 Ford Expedition with aluminum corrosion issues. I was at a body shop yesterday and he noticed that the hood latch had a lot of corrosion around the bolts and said it could eventually let go and the hood could fly open. Why would this be happening to such a new vehicle? Ford says this is not covered.

Power rear hatch failure - after opening rear door, it would immediately come back down with the motor. If someone was standing at the rear of the vehicle, it would hit them, and stop, but would not go back up. This kept repeating for several weeks until the door no longer opened via the power opener. When taken to the dealer, all they found was that the door had "lost it's programming" and they reprogrammed it, but the problem has starting occurring again.

My wife reached down to pick up a toy our granddaughter had dropped. Wind blew car door closed, and retractable running board retracted catching my wife's arm. She could not free herself. She sustained bruising to her arm.
