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

1.) we bought the vehicle early in 2009 but never had a reason to use the 4WD. The first time we remember using it, there was a loud clanking sound. 2.) the second time we remember using the 4WD on the vehicle, the driveshaft twisted into failure even though the vehicle was moving at a slow rate of speed. 3.) when we took it to the dealership, they indicated that we abused the vehicle and said they could not perform the warranty work (however, they didn't mind giving us a loaner car) even though we bought the vehicle from them and they know we don't abuse our vehicles. I then called Ford customer service and they in turn called the dealership. The customer service spokesman came back and said they stand behind the dealerships service department and that they considered the manner closed.
