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.

2014 Ford Explorer Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 092015


  • 24,191 miles


The contact owns a 2014 Ford Explorer. While driving 35 mph, an exhaust odor emitted into the vehicle through the front and rear air vents during acceleration. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where the muffler was replaced. The vehicle was repaired; however, the failure recurred. In addition, the instrument panel failed to illuminate while driving 20 mph. The contact coasted the vehicle to the side of the road and the gear shifter seized. The contact restarted the vehicle and drove home. Once the contact arrived at home, the vehicle lost power, the alarm and horn sounded, and the tailgate opened. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where the gear shifter was replaced. The manufacturer was notified of the failures. The approximate failure mileage was 24,191. Updated 05/03/16
