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 Sport Trac V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles


I've been reading all these problems with the sport trac nd ford not taking care of them, it is not right....How many people have to die before something is made to happen? I'm thinking if I were those ppl who got hit because of this problem I would be having a good hungry lawyer after ford.......It's proven there is a SAFETY problem here they should be addressing.....I have along with my whole family been ford drivers forever....when time for new, ford is good-bye......

Explorer Sport Trac 4.0L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 120,000 miles

I have driven 99.9% of the time. Friend was following me in my FEST. 40 miles later in Dallas, he ask if I had trouble with turn signals not working? We checked and also no brake lights or flashers. Checked fuses, etc. I got in and moved steering wheel to highest position everything came back! It's recreatible! On Christmas Day, as I left house, no turn signal, etc. No I need to hold the steering wheel up (higher then top position) to activate them.
