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.

2008 Ford Explorer Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 072007

Explorer 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 93 miles


The contact owns a 2008 Ford Explorer. While driving with the high beams activated, the lights illuminated at an angle. The contact stated that there is no setting on the vehicle to adjust the lights horizontally. The dealer and manufacturer stated that nothing could be done other than adjust the vertical setting, which is not the cause of the failure. The VIN was invalid and the engine size was unknown. The failure mileage was 93 and current mileage was 1,100.
