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.

2007 Ford Explorer Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 032012

Explorer 4WD 8-cyl

  • 123,000 miles


The contact owns a 2007 Ford Explorer. The contact stated that the automatic driver's seat would independently move backward and forward without being engaged. The failure recurred four times while the contact was driving at an unknown speed. The vehicle was not taken to the dealer or a mechanic. The contact called the dealer and was advised that the seat failure was caused by a faulty door lock actuator. The door lock actuator would send faulty signals to the automatic driver's seat, indicating that the door was being opened and causing the driver's seat to move independently. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 123,000 and the current mileage was 125,000. Updated 8/11/14 updated 08/25/2014
