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.

2002 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 122002

Explorer Sport Trac 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 30 miles


To whom it may concern: I just read the article on the Ford escape (4/13/04) recall at I bought my truck in September 2002. This engine stalling/stuttering and dying is exactly what my Ford Explorer Sport Trac has been doing since the 2nd day (30 miles) of ownership. I have taken my vehicle in to the dealership numerous times, with documentation, and they say they can find nothing wrong. I have sent several letters to the FordS dispute settlement board. They stated in their summary that I could not be helped because I have not been inconvenienced enough. I hope I can get some assistance with this. Ford has refused to assist me. My vehicle, just today, again hesitated and chugged for some time. It is like the fuel is not getting to the carburetor. This vehicle is dangerous. Lucius (bud) angell
