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 8-cyl

  • 6,000 miles


I own a 2010 Ford Expedition V8 with 9000miles on it. I was pulling out into traffic making a left hand turn from a stop. While giving the truck gas the transmission started jumping gears and slipping while other vehicles slammed on their brakes. The truck has been into shop 9 times in 8 months for transmissions issues. The transmission issues have occurred several times and problem is not being addressed by the manufacturer. The transmission has been worked on several times and at this point I afraid to put my family in this truck.

My 2010 has jumped out of gear 4-5 times and most recently it jumped out and I missed the brake and hit the gas --the SUV ran into a building causing about 6-8K in damage. I know I put the Expedition in gear and the video/surveil. Tape shows that I did..I am trading this pos asap!!!

The contact owns a 2010 Ford Expedition. When the vehicle stopped on an incline, the gear shift was in reverse; however, it responded as if it were in park. The vehicle crashed into a bank of rocks. There were front end damages to the bumper. There were no injuries mentioned. The dealer was contacted and stated that was the way the vehicle was designed. The failure was not diagnosed or repaired. The failure mileage was 2100 and the current mileage was 2150. Updated 08/27/10. When the vehicle was turned off, it went into free wheel and started to roll down the incline and subsequently crashed causing damage. The vehicle was on an incline and thought to be in park, but was really in reverse. Updated 08/31/10
