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 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


This vehicle was purchased brand new in October 2004. Six months along the car shut down as I was driving and failed to turn over. Car was towed to the dealer where originally purchased and after four days car was returned to me. Had no problems for the next 6 months. In February 2006 on my way home from work one evening, the car stalled once again. Same situation. I had the car towed to another Ford dealer. Three days later got it back, they claimed the first time the car was not fixed correctly. Yesterday June 26th I was about to get on the highway with my children in the car and as I am driving on the ramp to the brooklyn queens expressway it dies once again. This is the third incident with the same problem. I feel so unsafe in this car. Imagine if it had shut down on me on the highway as I was driving. I would hate to think what would've happened. The car is a 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac.
