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.

I'm not sure why it's ok to sell vehicles with engines that can't even make it for 10 years. Thanks Ford! Never again will I buy one!

1999 FORD EXPLORER SPORT RECALL PART CAMCHAIN TENSIOR

I have never had a MAJOR problem with this car until FORD replaced a RECALL PART call the CAMCHAIN TENSIOR.

I TOOK THE CAR TO ANOTHER WELL KNOWN COMPANY. I WAS TOLD TO TAKE IT BACK TO FORD. BECAUSE IT WAS A RECALL PART AND THEY SHOULD FIX IT.

GUEST WHAT, I TOOK IT BACK TO FORD AND THEY TOLD ME I NEEDED TO PURCHASE A NEW MOTOR FOR $4,400.00

OF COURSE I FLIPPED OUT. I SAID I TOOK CARE OF THIS CAR LIKE IT WAS MY CHILD, IT ONLY HAS 50,000 MILES ON THE MOTOR.

THEN I SAID," WHAT YOU ARE SAYING TO ME IN SO MANY WORDS.. THAT FORD IS SELLING CARS WITH MOTORS THAT GO ONLY TO 50,000 MILES."

FORD'S CORPORATE OFFICE WAS A JOKE. I GOT NOWHERE.

IF YOU HEAR A RATTLING , CLANKING NOISE, TAKE YOUR CAR IN A.S.A.P. BEFORE YOUR CHEAP 12 MONTH RECALL WARRANTY RUNS OUT.
