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.

Expedition 4WD 8-cyl

I was driving in a school zone when a vehicle ran a yield sign and hit me on the drivers side front. My airbags didn't deploy. The impact pushed me through a fence and into a residential yard. I hit my head on the window and the handle that was molded into the drivers side windshield. The left side of my body took the impact and I was wearing my seatbelt. I suffered a tbi and have been unable to work, drive, and function for a year.

The paint on the front edge of the hood is showing signs of bubbles, like there is corrosion under the bubbles.
