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.

problem #2

Jul 202009

Explorer 4.0L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 111,847 miles


Rear hatch window explodes regularly for no apparent reason. I have had to replace this window twice now. On both occasions it just exploded into a million pieces while driving on the highway. A note to any Explore owners,,,,,,,,,,, IT IS NOT SAFE TO CARRY PASSENGERS IN THE BACK SEAT,,,,,,, glass flies everywhere when this time bomb goes off.

there needs to be more attention paid to the durability of windows. This vehicle was sitting in the shade with windows down on an 80 degree day. Front windshield cracked and back stationary window on passenger side burst. Explain this
