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

problem #3

Aug 022010

Expedition 8-cyl

  • miles


Clear coat and paint started peeling of for no reason and rust is appearing underneath the hood and the back door as well. Takes a while before shifting gears.

problem #2

Mar 092014

Expedition 8-cyl

  • 96,000 miles
Pulling into the garage and the car spontaneously accelerated causing me to slam on brakes. This is the second time the car started accelerating spontaneously since I purchased it. The first time I was stopped at a stoplight with my foot on the brake when the car started revving and wanted to jump forward, if I hadn't through the car into park I would have hit the car in front of me.

problem #1

Apr 102013

Expedition 8-cyl

  • 41,000 miles
At the start of the engine, there is a tickling noise that does not disappear until after the first gear is automatically engaged. To me, this looks like a manufacturer's defect on the vehicle rather than an engine problem because at 41000 miles, such problems should not develop: The vehicle is relatively new.
