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.

Both my wife and I noticed that there were loud noises coming from the rear end of the vehicle...growling noises which became noticeable around 30 mph. As the speed increased, the noise level did as well. I was told by a Ford mechanic that the rear wheel bearings needed to be replaced (after only approx. 32K miles!). I replaced both rear wheel bearings and the noise diminished but did not totally go away. It still varies with speed. When it's raining, the noise diminishes. When it's cold ( freezing or lower) the noise diminishes. In neither case, after the bearings were replaced, did the noise go away completely. We bought the car brand new and had none of these problems. Different Ford forums state that there is a defect in the arms that support the rear wheels that causes the bearings to be rotated in a position that causes them to fail quickly. To date I have not found any literature from Ford verifying this, yet the problem persists.

My passenger side wheels hit a snow hidden pot hole and scratched both wheel covers. When I went to my Ford dealer to purchase two new wheel covers I was told that they were not "covers" (hub caps) at all, rather they were "chrome foil covered plastic" bonded to the wheel rim. One can no longer simply replace a $25 - $50 wheel-cover (hub cap) to keep a Ford vehicle looking new. You have to purchase the entire wheel. The replacement cost is $860 plus remounting costs; about $1000 for each wheel. I left the dealership feeling cheated! my original sales invoice lists the wheels as "chrome clad" and this is obviously misleading! the sales staff said to wait for an "after market" solution. Ford executives offered no help saying they do not cover damage due to weather conditions and to contact my insurance company! my argument remains.. in order for the wheels to be damaged so easily, they are obviously comprised of sub-standard material. The aluminum foil my wife uses in our kitchen is stronger than Ford's "chrome clad" wheels. I pride myself in maintaining my vehicles in "like new" condition. Ford has lost me as a lifetime customer because of their apparent lack of concern for the potential upkeep costs to the consumer. They seem more interested in saving weight and manufacturing costs and I can't help but wonder what else they cut corners on?

When depressing brakes while pulling into parking space, brakes became extremely stiff and had to stand on them to stop barely missing car parked in space to my front, also when coming to a stop at a stop light car was very difficult to get slowed down to a stop. Called local service tech and described issue and was told brake booster would need to be replaced and unfortunately it is on backorder.

I was riding down the street at a normal speed, all of a sudden I heard a loud sound. The car started driving really funny. I pulled over on a side street to see if I hit something, . nothing was in the road, I then looked at the car.this is when I noticed my tires on my passengers side had blown out. I had 2 flat tires. I don't know what happened. I only had the car for 2 months. The tread on the tire was still good, the road was ok, a little rough but I didn't see any need for 2 flats. The steering also makes a loud noise when I turn it to the right and to the left. I had it looked at but of course the dealer says nothing is wrong. Its not making a loud noise for nothing.

The contact owns 2011 Ford Edge. The contact stated that while parking the vehicle, she scraped the tire against a curb. The failure caused the rear passenger's side hub cap to bend, exposing sharp Edges. The contact was concerned that the damaged hub cap could potentially cause injuries or lacerations when washing the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for inspection where they stated that the hub cap needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 30,000.
