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

Jan 082011

Explorer Sport Trac LX 4.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles


Just replaced the right front axle went to get inspection & was told the upper & lower ball joints need to be replaced... 50000 miles. Never, Never in my life have I owned such a piece of junk. Ford claims to be the number 1 in America. Ford is the worst company in America. How do they get away with selling junk. I think CLASS ACTION SUIT from anyone having such problems. Standard highway driving and transmission, front end, electrical, burnt out consoles, defrost motor,. defective read door child locks (HARDLY USED) AND ALL BEFORE 50000MILES. This never happened with cars purchased in the 60's & 70's. Something needs to be done!
