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.

Very scary problem. Truck will randomly cut out in the middle of driving, almost causing me 2 accidents.

Took the truck into the shop and they advised me the fuse panel internally needs replaced. They can bypass the fuse box and get the truck to run, but isn't a plausible solution as it could overheat an short. I took into a shop because about 4 months prior, I had the same issue. I changed the fuel pump and everything fine for awhile.

I can't stress this enough, THIS ALMOST CAUSED ME 2 ACCIDENTS.... having a 7500lb truck cut out on you on the highway with no power steering and cruising at 70+ mph, is no joke.

I see all kinds of the same complaints with the Ford Expedition.

I feel like I'm getting taken to the cleaners here on a poor product from Ford.
