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.

problem #2

Escape XLT V6

  • Automatic transmission

A neighbor pointed out that my rear window was crooked. I never opened this window, therefore, I did not notice it. I opened the window and saw that the bolts/screws corroded and one broke. Now this window do not open at all neither do the door. The dealer wants too much to fix it. Is there a recall for this? Open for any suggestions.

I've had this suv 5 weeks and the driver side window won't go up. of course I have had so many problems with it so far, It will probably stay in the shop for however long I own it.
