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.

: the contact stated the vehicle's oil and antifreeze leaked causing the intake and outtake of the engine to rust, in turn causing the pipe to bust and the vehicle to overheat. The vehicle needed a new engine to fix this issue. Updated 12.8/2006 - 4.6 liter northstar engine. The L/F window was inoperative. The brakes pulsated. The ses light illuminated. The headlight was inoperative. The automatic transmission failed.

Dealer has replaced and turned brake rotors numerous times I have replaced rotors and calipers and pads with all new parts also and brakes on front do not release completely all the time and keep warping rotors and wearing out brake pads this has been done many times since being bought in 2000. Tire rims also leak air and tires keep going low this was serviced by dealer and myself not cure has been found yet.
