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.

2013 Ford Explorer Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 052014


  • 40,000 miles


The contact owns a 2013 Ford Explorer. While driving at various speeds, the steering became very difficult to control. When the contact turned off and restarted the vehicle, the steering resumed normal operation. The dealer stated that the VIN was excluded from NHTSA campaign number: 14V286000 (steering). While driving various speeds, the windshield would vibrate and the ambient lighting would default to white on the instrument panel, which hindered the contact's visibility of all the gauges. The vehicle was not diagnosed nor repaired. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 40,000.
