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.

2011 Ford Escape Owner Comments

problem #2

Went to the dealer, [xxx], to get an oil change and they told me my Maine state inspection was due. The inspection failed due to corrosion on the left front lower control arm bushing. There is a recall on earlier Escape models, but my 2011 model was not covered. It cost me around 600 dollars to repair. If earlier models had this problem why are consumers paying for the same repair on newer models? information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
