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 have had the dealer look at the problem or rough shifting transmission and they say there is noting wrong with it. I have never had a automobile shift as rough as this before and. Next time I will stick with Chevy.

  • Automatic transmission

im a buy American die American kind of guy. I love my fords, but this ford escape has given me atleast 3 problems since i bought it. I bought it in october 07, it is now jan 08. One of the spark plugs has already fouled and it caused one of the coil packs to go out as well. There is a very loud squeak coming from the left front tie rod or steering boot, i dont know which one it is yet and the transmission is shifting very roughly.
