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 XLT 4.O Liter

  • Automatic transmission

Wow! I had no idea that there were so many problems with the Explorer tranny. This seems to be an ongoing problem with these trannys that Ford will not fess up to. I now understand that even after paying mucho $$$ to fix... the problem just comes back.

THIS SHOULD BE A FORD RECALL. I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER FORD!!!
