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.

I rolled down the drives side window and a noise occurred. It was something falling off of the door handle, because it will not open.

Ford auto sales are down. It used to be their slogan as Ford Quality is Number 1.

Not in my book.

Have a nice. And good luck it you drive a Ford.

Escape XLT V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 69,000 miles

It first started with the back door, could not open door outside or inside. Handle was very loose and wouldn't' re tack to door. Took vehicle to local bodyshop, no parts or repairs were needed inside the door. After they took the inside paneling off the inside of the door, the part that operates the outside door handle needed lubrication. Thought that would be the end of the problem. Well it happen to the drivers door, front passenger door and now it's happening again to the original door handle. The bodyshop owner found the same problem each time. This Ford Escape has been a excellent vehicle, it well taken care and the local Ford Dealership takes care of all service requirements. Can't figure out what's causing the door handles to do this. Any assistance will be appreciated.
