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.

1996 Ford Explorer Owner Comments

problem #1

Explorer XLT Sport 4.0L V6

The gear shift (PRNDL) fell off the steering column when changing from drive to park. The exact same way I put the vehicle in park countless times. No excessive force was used. My wife didn't believe me though and recommended I attend an anger management class. Repaired at local Ford dealer for $$$. Handling was never the same afterwards. Steering was "whippy".
