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.

Urgent recall notice, I received on my 2003 Ford Escape after research on the recall vehicle, I believe this caused my daughter accident, she rolled this vehicle. I M very angry that I have followed the law in responeding to the recall notice and when I explained my concerns I was told someone was going to conact me. This has not happen. No deaths but property damage yes ( paying for avehical) I have sitting in my back yard that I M still paying for.bring a single mother, this hardship, I paid $14,000 and it only has 60 thousand miles. I have pictures of the accident and I will have this vehicle checked out myself and talk to an attorney. Now if you can help me on what I should do next, I would be thankful.
