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.

2009 Ford Expedition Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 232015

Expedition 4WD 8-cyl

  • 65,500 miles


The brake sensor has malfunctioned and I am not able to take the vehicle out of park. If I depressed the brake pedal multiple times, it will finally sense the brakes and let me drive. Also, sometimes during driving the brake lights will not illuminate when pressed. Ford has issued a recall for this problem based on the date of manufacture. However, my model was not included as it was build 6 months prior to the timeframe outlined by Ford. Clearly the recall needs to be expanded since the problem is occurring in a wider timeframe than was determined by Ford.
