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.

2012 Ford Expedition Owner Comments

problem #1

After purchasing a 2012 Ford Expedition, we discovered that, when running the seat A/C, the motor inside the seat overheats. This causes the upper section of the seat to become hot, and the seat pocket behind the seat to become very hot. We were advised that the system was built without proper ventilation for the motor, and there was no fix. Not just for our vehicle but for all 2012 Expedition....all have this problem. The advice given by Ford was "don't use the seat A/C during the summer." I was told it would be okay to use the seat heater in the winter. However, if the blower doesn't ventilate properly, the motor will still become hot. My fear is that it will become so hot that it could either short out, giving someone a nasty shock, or worse, catch fire.
