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.

Hello, OK I purchased this Ford 2002 Escape 6/12/16. The car runs well for the exception of this problem. When you stp down on the brakes your hear and feel on the brake pedal a thumping noise. I had a warrenty on the car. I took it to my mechanic and he did aq 21 point check on this car. Everything is ok, but he said I need need front left and right axels. I took it to the dealerships service place and they checked and said all is fine. So why am I hearing and feeling this noise and what could it be. In additon both my mechanic and the dealerships mechanic said that the brakes are fine. Can someone help?
