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.

On 3/5/14, owner brought the vehicle, a 2007 Ford Crown Victoria police, to an authorized Ford dealer who completed factory recall 13S08 that called for replacing steering shaft assembly. On 11/30/14, when turning at approximately 10 mph, the steering became very stiff requiring excessive physical force to turn the wheel. A collision with a pole was barely avoided. Steering has remained stiff and sluggish despite checking power steering levels and tire pressure for proper inflation. Owner considers the vehicle to be unsafe to drive at this point.. the consumer stated Ford issued another recall to address the improper repairs done under the first recall. However, he was informed his vehicle was not included. Updated 06/29/15. Updated 12/22/2015

The contact owns a 2007 Ford Crown Victoria. The contact stated that while driving at various speeds, the power steering malfunctioned and the steering wheel became hard to maneuver. The contact mentioned that the vehicle was repaired under recall NHTSA campaign id number: 13V385000 (steering). However, the failure recurred. The authorized dealer had not confirmed if the upper portion of the steering shaft needed to be inspected and repaired when the recall repair was performed. The vehicle was to be taken back to the authorized dealer for further inspection, diagnosis and repair. The manufacturer was notified of the failure and provided no remedy. The approximate failure mileage was 103,000. Updated 10/02/14 updated 3/3/2015

Steering effort is increasing. The steering column moves and clicks upon acceleration. Steering is increasing getting harder to control. Also have had the roof repainted by Ford while under manufacture warranty due to paint peeling in large sheets of roof, now the front hood has large peeling paint leaving the green coating showing. Ford will not cover now as out of warranty.
