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.

I purchased a used vehicle from broadway Kia. Upon inspection I found that there were a few, what appeared to be cosmetic damages to the front passenger side rim. I asked the sales person, [xxx] about the damaged rim because it appeared to be bent. He assured me that the entire vehicle was inspected and that the tire/wheel was not compromised. Approximately 2 weeks later the tire pressure gauge came on in the car. I filled all the tires because at that point I was not certain any one tire was low. Approximately 2 weeks after that I had to put more air in the right passenger side tire. At that point I went to a Firestone tires to have them repair what I thought was a leak. They advised that the tire could not be dismounted and repaired because the rim itself was bent and cracking and that I would need an entire new wheel (tire and rim). At that point I emailed one of the managers at broadway Kia to let them know what was going on. I went in on 8/18/13 and purchased a new set of tires and rims as I needed to be able to drive. I contacted the general manager regarding the issue and was asked to bring the car in but once he found out that I had already purchased new rims/tires he told me there was nothing he could do. I was advised by the tire repair person that had I hit something just right or had too much pressure applied on the tire it could have blown. This car was not safe to drive off the lot or allow someone to drive for an entire month. This company needs to be held to higher safety standards.

I was performing preventative vehicle maintenance on my 2010 Ford Edge. I had just completed a basic oil change, to include both oil filter and air filter change along with topping off of all vehicle fluids. I lastly attempted to rotate the vehicle tires when I noticed that two of the vehicles lug nuts where just free spinning along the wheel stud or bolt. At first I thought the lug nuts had just stripped and was in the process of replacing them when the entire lug nut and wheel studs (bolt) came completely off the wheel hub. This is very concerning due to the fact that the vehicle is only two (2) years old and in excellent condition, not to mention that I have never encountered a problem with a vehicles wheel studs. The wheel studs along with the lug nuts are the components that hold the tires securely to the vehicles. After several attempts to locate the vehicle at the local parts stores, I spent several hours on the web trying to find the replacement wheel studs to no avail. However, I did find where Ford motor vehicle company has recalled several 2010 Ford Focus and 2010 Ford Fusion for the same problem. To quote "lug nut, bolt or stud were found defective, (sheared completely off) on several 2010 Ford Fusion models." When I approached the Ford dealership to order replacement wheel studs they acted suprised and non-chalant concerning the problems and simply stated that my vehicle was no longer under warranty. Is this related?

Edge 6-cyl

  • 31,500 miles


We recently experienced a tire blowout of the left rear tire on our 2010 Ford Edge while traveling South on interstate 81 South just outside of scranton pa. At the time of the blowout we were traveling about 60mph. When I went to change the tire I observed that the wheel (rim) had started to collapse and the outer rim had separated from the hub about 75% of the way. We did not run over anything that we can remember. There was no noise that would normally be expected if something was in the road and neither of us heard anything but the noise of the tire blowout. (if there was something in the road, how did the front tire not contact it as well??) the road was clear ahead of us. I immediately pulled over, but had to "inch" along the side of the road for about 200yds to get to a safe point to change the tire. After that, we went to a local Ford dealer for assistance, as we were not comfortable driving another 500 miles on a "MINIspare tire. The dealer shared with us that they had never seen anything like this before. After some examination we did notice a tiny puncture of the tire on the inside surface of the tire. There is a corresponding "pushed in" surface of the aluminum wheel. (I have photos available, as well as the wheel and tire). I report this as a concern for the safety of others as this could have been a terrible accident had the wheel separated. Ford Motor Company did nothing to assist with this defective wheel. We are also not feeling comfortable that won't happen again if we get another blowout. So far this has cost us about $1,000 for replacement wheel & tire.

Edge 6-cyl

Serious issue with daily loss of tire pressure ranging from 3 to 18 lbs, in 2010 Ford Edge sport with 22' wheels. Tsb from Ford indicates they are aware but will not recall/replace wheels. Tsb indicates problem caused by corrosion/dirt on tire bead seat area, preventing proper seal. Vehicle has been returned to dealer 8 times, rims/tires cleaned, bead sealer added every time, valve stems changed, tire slime added every time, mount, rebalance & rotate every time, yet still no resolution. Tire pressure loss occurs within 4 days every time returned from dealer. Currently escalated, through numerous phone calls to Ford Motor Co, and awaiting response.
