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.

Ford should have to recall this problem and fix the issues. People can't afford to fix these expensive repairs and we shouldn't have to. These are life threatening repairs and they should have to take care of the problems.

Explorer Sport Trac XLT

  • 75,000 miles

I have a vibration problem with my 2003 Explorer Sport Trac. It had 90,000 km when this started. Went to the dealership "Weiland Ford" in Kitchener, the worst customer service ever. More attitude then a 16 year old. They spent 2 days driving the truck on different road tests, charged me $600 and told me I need new tires. I spend $1200 on new Goodyear Fortera tires. Still have the same problem. So, I went back to the dealership. They are not sure what the problem is now, and not sure how to fix it. I do a lot of traveling for work, and the vehicle vibrated between 60 - 130 km/h. What am I going to do next, not sure yet. But this is my last ford for sure!
