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. Notes: Well, it's not a 2002, so it's got that going for it.

2000 Ford Explorer Owner Comments

Explorer XLT 6

I bought the vehicle before I returned to college. I went to go to class one morning and I went to put the truck in to reverse and the gear shift broke off in my hand. I am not able to move my car or drive back and forth to class. I don't have money to get it fixed because I am a college student. I want to know what Ford is doing. I see so many complaints about the same thing and nothing is being done. What can we do?
