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 #2

Back window flipped open while driving 15 mph in a parking lot. Went to close it and the hinge cracked so the window was hanging by one hinge. Using all my strength I was able to push the window up (extremely difficult given the pump) and close it, although not secure. The window is very heavy and held by a plastic hinge that completely snapped. This is a problem cited in earlier models, and apparently Ford did not rectify the issue. Plastic is not strong enough to hold heavy glass.

The contact owns a 2007 Ford Explorer. The contact heard a rumbling noise whenever he rolled down the rear windows. While driving various speeds with the windows down, the vehicle vibrates severely. The dealer stated that there was a design defect, but could not repair the vehicle. The failure mileage was 34,012.
