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

  • 57,500 miles


I have a 2005 Ford Explorer Sport Trac. At 57500 miles my emergency brake locked up on the rear driver side of the vehicle. I ended up replacing the rear brake rotors and brake pedals. As it is I still need repair done to the emergency brakes. The emergency brakes were inoperable and were unsafe which could have resulted in a serious accident.
