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.

It's terrible that there is only a recall in the Salt Belt states. I've replaced abs sensors 3 times, they activate at slow speeds like at intersections when your slowing down. I gave up on them and just unplugged sensors to use conventional brakes. Much safer than gambling on faulty abs sensors.

The Abs Sensor went out or was bad on my truck and when I took it to the dealer, I ended up having to pay for a new hub and sensor, this is the second one. These are under recall but my vin didn't match, what a crock, These people are ripping the public off, it's back to Ford I go...
