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.

Explorer Sport Trac

  • 42,000 miles


I replaced the original oem pirelli tires in December 2015 when the vehicle had approximately 36,000 miles on it. They were replaced with the same brand, size and style of pirelli tires. On March 8, 2016 at approx. 42,000 miles I returned to the tire shop to have the tires rebalanced after noticing some bumpiness. The tire shop discovered that in two of the tires the steel band which held the TPMS sensor in place had disintegrated and was free floating in the tire and had ruined the inner liners in the tires making them extremely unsafe. I contacted my local Ford dealer and inquired about possible recalls and/or bulletins involving the steel bands used on the TPMS. Ford denied any previous issues with the bands however they did note that Ford had quit using the steel bands after only using them a short while. I feel Ford Motor Company owes me the $542.72 I am out for the replacement of the tires and sensors I had to replace to remedy a very unsafe situtation. I replace the bands and sensors in the other two tires as well with a replacement type which doesn't involve steel bands. Ford should issue a recall notice immediately to remedy an unsafe TPMS band system immediately which could have resulted in a catastrophic accident if the situtation had not been discovered by the tire shop. I'm enclosing a copy of my expenses and a picture of the broken bands which were discovered within my tires.
