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

problem #1

Feb 152014

Explorer XLS 3.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 101,780 miles


My hatch and back window will NOT open. When I need to buy groceries, haul bags of mulch or dog food, load up my dogs, I am unable to put them in the back of the SUV. I have to pull the back seats down in order to put stuff in the back. I am a senior citizen and I have to get my neighbor to take my items out of the back of the SUV.

This is very annoying. I have NO way of doing any of these things.
