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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: How can we give the 2001 model year a "seal of pretty good" when it has some problems with a slipping transmission and a known problem with the speed activation control switch? Because it's not the 2002. That's how.

2001 Ford Explorer Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 302010

Explorer Sport V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 140,000 miles

The driver's side door lock no longer works. I now have to enter the truck from the passenger's side, climb over the passenger's seat and open the driver's door from the inside. This problem is not isolated; many other Explorer Sport owners are suffering from the same problem, but, this was never issued as a "recall" from Ford! Why???
