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 #4

Feb 052015

Explorer Limited 4.6L/ V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 85,000 miles


After buying a 2007 Ford Explorer V8 as my fist car I unassumingly bought a money sucking problem. The problems started a month after buying the car with transmission clunking. Last month the right rear wheel bearing failed. The humming sound progressively got worse and worse until I was forced to get it fixed. The part cost $212 and the labor was $350. It seems that I am going to have to live under a bridge or sell this car at a lost. This is my first financial mistake.

Explorer Ironman V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 65,000 miles

Front, driver side wheal bearing needed replacement at 65,000 miles. I can't believe I have to do such a repair already. I drove my 96 Explorer for 180,000 miles and never had to replace a single bearing.
