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.

As described in recall number 98V322000, the lower ball joint broke apart while I was driving the vehicle. This vehicle was originally titled as a fleet vehicle which was part of the recall. The manufacturer refuses to get vehicle fixed. In fact, they say that there are no recalls at all on my vehicle when in fact there are that I know have not been fixed.

Crown Victoria

As my boyfriend back my car out of the drive on April 22, 2009 between 8:30-9:00pm, the entire front end of the vehicle fell. It appeared that the shocks gave out or something. The only problems the vehicle had were coil issues but we got it taken care of. The Ford company claims that the vehicle has no recall on it but I hear from autobuyguide.com that there was a recall on Dec. 16, 1998 for the vehicle suspension, front, control arm, lower ball joint. Then a friend of mine told me about others who had this same problem. I want my car to be fixed. I have 2 small children and I need transportation. This a factory default, I shouldn't have to pay to fix this. Can you all help me?
