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.

2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Owner Comments

problem #1

Explorer Sport Trac 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,000 miles


After the vehicle has been driven and then parked during precipitation and the vehicle is then started up and driven for a few minutes, the windshield becomes completely obscured with fog, even when the windshield defog system is selected to high blow. After a minute or two of operation the windshield is cleared by the defog system. Newberg Ford says all Explorer Sport tracs do this & they can't fix it.
