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.

This the summer the light behind my gears on the instrument panel burnt out. I was told that the cost would be significant. I can see it fine in the daylight hours, but at night, I use a flashlight to make sure I am in drive

Escape XLT V6

Its a real pain, in the winter it takes 15-20 minutes for the lights to come on.

In the summer it only takes a minute.
