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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2007 Ford Escape looks pretty good compared to other Ford Escape model years, but still has a trend of transmission problems, so it's not a model year we can recommend.

Also the base model Escape did not come with side airbags so it received a "Poor" rating from the IIHS for side impact protection. Other similar 2007 models like the Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V & Hyundai Santa Fe scored far better.

The rear window exploded this morning. We live in the country so it wasn't due to any outside disturbance.

Car was parked. Rear window exploded and burn marks were seen on the glass. Thus far our cost to replace the window and wiper blade motor and blade has been 460 dollars. We filed an insurance claim but the window repair came in under the deductible. The wiper motor was considered to be wear and tear and thus was not covered. I hope a recall will be issued to correct this problem since it seems to be a common occurrence according to posts we have read on the internet.
