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.

Backing out of driveway and power steering failed. Warning light went on. I stopped driving immediately and called local Ford dealer service. They suggested restarting the car to see if steering resumed and it did. They offered a free tow which I declined when I saw I had non power steering if needed. Dealer close by and I drove at very low speed. Three days later the car repair was completed (July 4th weekend). The work on the invoice was "trace and replace power steering gear set alignment with part# 1 cv6Z*3504 gear asy - steering. Car seems fine and we were advised of an upcoming power steering recall in which we need to participate. Hats off to genesee valley Ford in avon NY for taking this very seriously and giving us such prompt service plus a loaner.
