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.

While I was sleeping, a second Continental tire blew up and damaged the drivers side quarter panel severely. The explosion woke neighbors 2 streets over. My car had been parked for 13 hours and the conditions were 55 degrees and rainy. Contacted Continental tires and they are only willing to repair the drivers side of my vehicle because I didn't save the blown tire to mail to them.

I have a 2007 Ford Escape. I took it to the car was and my ABS lights and 4WD lights came on. I looked online and found several complaints of tone rings (ABS rings) being cracked. Sure enough my front left tone ring is cracked. I believe it happen on the conveyor at the car was. Still this is a common problem, even Ford dealers (two of them) agree. Why isn't this a recall? Ford is fixing it for $300.
