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. Notes: After a half-decade of major transmission problems, Ford seems to have solved all the major defects with the Explorer.

We are happy to say that both the & the NHTSA data indicate no problems whatsoever with the 2010 Ford Explorer.

The contact owns a 2010 Ford Explorer. The contact noticed that the vehicle was leaking fuel continuously. The contact was a certified mechanic and replaced the fuel fume neck and rubber hose. The vehicle was repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 85,000.

problem #1

Capless fuel filler adapter broken off when gas pump nozzle inserted due to poor Ford design which causes it to break off very easily. There was a pseudo recall that requires the check engine light be on which is not the case with my car. Many Ford owners have the same issue. Ford should provide complete replacement as this capless fuel fill assembly/system was not designed and built properly. This condition makes much more difficult to insert pump nozzle into car. Not sure if this is a safety issue. Thank you
