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.

The fuel pump started to come apart under normal driving condition releasing raw gas fumes into the passenger cabin. This defect made the car unsafe to drive.

problem #1

Explorer 6-cyl

  • 2,260 miles
I am reporting an emission issue with this vehicle and the previous one I had with same issue. Something needs to be done to make this not happen to anyone else. I am breathing exhaust fumes in the cabin at hard acceleration through the ac system all the time even after they so called fixed this vehicle. Even with moderate acceleration passing someone. I am going through the lemon law at this time. The smell is so bad it is giving me headaches all day and night and effecting my health. If it is in two vehicles then it is in all of them Ford needs to fix this problem period not part fix it. I was told by Florida attorney generals attorney to report this to you.
