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 2012 Ford Escape has an acceptable complaint history so far, with leaking rear window problems showing up as the main concern so far. NHTSA complaint data shows an early pattern of problems with stalling while driving.

Another concern is the 2012 Escape rolled onto its roof during an NHTSA side impact test so it only received a marginal side impact rating ... not good.

Escape

The contact owns a 2012 Ford Escape. The contact stated that the fuel cap was missing from the vehicle. When the contact would refuel, he could smell an overpowering gasoline fuel odor being emitted from the vehicle by the time he reached his destination. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for inspection where they advised that the newer Ford Escape models were being manufactured without a fuel cap. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not notified. The failure mileage was 75. The VIN was unavailable.
