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.

Explorer 6-cyl

  • 5,000 miles
The buckle for both inflatable seatbelts in the second row seat have broken a total of 4 times. Once the buckle crumbled into many pieces in my daughter's hand, on both belts a protective plastic cover has fallen off, and now one of the belts gets stuck occasionally in the buckle. Also the middle belt locked up and would not unroll. So a total of 5 issues with one row of belts and buckles. This is the row my children sit in. I requested Ford to take this vehicle back under the California lemon law and they denied it!

The contact owns a 2013 Ford Explorer. The contact stated that the rear second row passenger side seat belt failed to un-latch when occupied. The contact mentioned that the failure occurred whenever the other two rear seats were not in a fully reclined position. The downward positioning of the two seats covered the seat belt release button. The vehicle was taken to a dealer who was unable to provide assistance. The manufacturer was notified of the problem. The approximate failure mileage was 1,200. Updated 10/26/12
