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. Notes: With solid trends of engine failure — $4,500 to fix at 85,000 miles avg — AND transmission failure — $3,000 to fix at 75,000 miles avg — we can't recommend the 2006 Ford Escape to anyone except your worst enemy.

I have had to bring my new car 2006 Ford Escape to the dealer (5xs) where I purchased it for an ongoing squealing problem when the car is started in the morning. Any fixes are temporary and the squeal continues on a new car this should not be happening.. my concern is that is a more serious problem like the transmission and they just are not fixing it, I have a full warranty and now I notice when I put my car in park I still move and I hit the brake but I am in park? my car is going back in again this wed the last time was just a few months ago and they had it for about 5 days... this is the last time for me.
