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.

(year 2011 to 2013 all this happened lemon) the wheel bearings went on the vehicle...had to have all three replaced...both front...one drivers side back. It wasn't the tires because they were brand new.( $2.100 including labor) the mechanic stated that never should have happened. This seems to be an on going problem with sport tracs...I am to have the right rear passenger side done soon...no one has over $700...to put towards a vehicle in this day and age with the economy the way it is. This Sport Trac has been with so many issues to do with wheels, transmission (one month in the repair shop, reverse and drive gone on the tranny( $6897.65), radiator (replaced 3X due to rupture of the, cooling and heating system $1017.), hoses breaking ($200)...no wonder they quit making them total pain in the keester and very hard on the pocket book. It is paid for and is mine that is the only reason I keep it. I cannot afford to get another vehicle...but I will never buy another Ford again. Their service says it all...it is horrible. Since purchasing this vehicle I have spent $10,903.65 in repairs. The truck is very hard on tires...I don't squeal my tires but I travel 70 to and from daily for work..every year baby needs new rubber boots. $689. Not fair in all essence the vehicle is only 6 yrs old. I have had better and it certainly wasn't a Ford. You can share this with them if you like because they need to see that their service department did nothing for me and I took it to acute auto care for my transmission etc.

In 2008 and then 2010 the front sealed wheel bearings assemblies have gone bad, requiring a wheel bearing kit by the dealer to fix the problem. Now in may~June 2012, the rear wheel bearing assembly is experiencing the same problem. Ford is aware of the issue in the Explorer series, but doing nothing to fix the problem, other than charging you $700 per wheel ( $350 parts/ $350 labor) to fix the problem. Nice little operation the dealer/Ford Corp. Have going. Other Explorer owners I talked with have had the same problem.

The contact owns a 2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac. The contact stated that the tires were continuously deflating. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who was unable to diagnosed the failure but decided to place a sealant around the aluminum wheel as a temporary remedy. The remedy failed to repair the problem. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure who did not offer any assistance. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 75,000 and the current mileage was 78,000. Updated 02/15/12
