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.

2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Owner Comments

problem #1

May 202002

Explorer Sport Trac 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 36,201 miles


I have a 2001 Ford Sport Trac 2 wheel drive. When the truck had just passed the warranty period the brakes had to be replaced. The right front was down to bare metal. The rotor was replaced. Twice since then the brakes have been replaced with the exact same ploblem and now need to be replaced again.Ford parts were used and parts were professionally installed.I have spoked with 11 other people who have the same truck with the same problem. Also the turn signal and brake lights do not work if the tilt steering is tilted down. My truck has less than 92000 miles, and quiiet frankly I am very disappointed. I have owned Ford for the past 25 years and until this one I would not have owned anything else. Now it's time to get a new truck and I am not at all set on a Ford.
