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.

1999 Ford Explorer Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 272007

(reported on)

Explorer 4.0L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles


I bought the Ford Explorer primarily because it was an SUV with the number keypad on the exterior of the vehicle. After absentmindedly locking my keys in my car numerous times, the keypad on the exterior was a MUST and that is why I chose the Ford model. You can imagine my anger when my keypad did not work to let me in my vehicle. Especially when I used the keypad as my primary source of entry. I would purposely lock my keys in the car and always knew where they were at all times. So I was really ticked off when with no warning, it would just not let me in the vehicle. A REAL PAIN IN THE BUTT!!! Frustrated Beyond Belief!!!
