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.

Explorer 4.0L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 110,000 miles

The O/D came on one day and just stayed on. The color matches the check engine light. I have no idea what problems are underlying. Technically, I no longer drive a Ford Explorer. I drive a Hope and a Prayer.

I think I will wait for another day to file the rest on my complaints. This is making me sad.
