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

Sep 092007

Explorer 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,300 miles


New vehicle purchase in orlando, fl on 09-07-07. Took to local Ford dealer in memphis, tn on 09-10-07 with issue of vehicle pulling and steering wheel vibration when braking, (1300 miles on vehicle). Ford said the rotors were glazed and warped, (Ford service employees unable to explain how or why this occurred with only 1300 mile on vehicle). Ford resurfaced rotors, (Ford stated they are only required to resurface rotors, not replace them under warranty). Ford did not replace brake pads or do any other brake job associated repair/replacement. Rotors were resurfaced with over half usable brake surface removed. I explained to Ford that with so much brake surface gone the next time the rotors are serviced, the rotors will most certainly need to be replaced at owners expense. (this repair has eliminated the first resurfacing option for the consumer).
