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.

Problems with excessive tire wear. 1.) (21,088 miles) purchase a pre owned certified vehicle 02/14/08 front tires look fairly new and rear tires looked like some wear on inside but not bad enough to bring to dealers attention. 2.) (21474 miles) brought back to dealer 02/25/08 for excessive wear on driver and passenger rear tires. Driver side rear was almost completely bald in inside of tire. Passenger side was not as bad but was worn to a point where you can notice. Dealer gave me a hard time and said that there was no way those tires wore that quickly. They said I bought the car that way. Put two new tires on the front (I paid for one $110) and took the fairly new front tires and put them on the back and had a 4 wheel alignment done. 3.) (21505 miles) 02/27/08 brought vehicle to my local Ford dealer and had the 4 wheel alignment check because I had no trust in purchasing dealer service department because of the hard time they gave me over the problem. Alignment checked out to be within specifications. 4.) (21,972 miles) 03/26/08 notice excessive wear on rear tires again and brought it back to local dealer. They agreed that the tires front and rear where wearing excessively and performed another alignment check. Again the alignment was within Ford specification. They also check underneath the vehicle for any part being bent and also check the frame to see if that may be bent. Everything checked out ok. Dealer brought the vehicle to a private tire / alignment shop and had the alignment checked out by an expert and he made some adjustments to bring it in a tighter to the specifications. Dealer advised me to bring back the vehicle back after 1,000 miles to rotate the tires and check them as well.
