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 #4

Air conditioner auto climate control.front blower periodically stops blowing.may not turn on when vehicle started or stop while vehicle has been running, nothing specific to recreate issue.rear blower works fine.been diagnosed 3-4 times with two different Ford repair facilities and not able to identify issue cause.vehicle under an extended service plan that covers all air conditioner and heater parts.some parts have been replaced.very frustrating because each time vehicle is turned in its a few days for them to do a diagnostic and monitor and return with no results.I have cycled the vehicle off and back on, sometimes this will engage blower. Other times I will turn off climate control system and it will engage blower.plenty of times neither option works.I change all settings to include manually changing the blower speed and air temperature which does not turn blower on.does not matter wether vehicle is stationary or in motion, speed, day or night, hot or cold, there is no specific circumstance that causes blower to stop working.

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.

2009 Ford Expedition fog lights - both fog light lens crack after driving on a paved highway in sub zero freezing weather. Both have identical failure mode and Ford refuses to cover under warranty. The materials, design, and engineering is sub-standard and does not meet dot specifications.
