Ford has stated that the Expedition is being investigated by NHTSA for possible defects with its windshield wipers. The defect potentially involved 650,000 vehicles built from 1999-2001, and results from moisture leaks into the vehicle near the windshield (presumably in the cowl area) during rain or snow - right when the wipers are needed, of course - and causes the wipers to malfunction. So far, 20 complaints have been received by NHTSA. While this is not yet a full-blown recall and may not develop into one (no accidents or injuries have been reported so far), it's certainly the sort of attention that Ford doesn't need right now.

I'm reporting this comment as:
