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.

After reaching down between the seat and center console to grab something that fell, I severely cut my hand and ended up needing 4 stitches. The gash went all the way down to my tendon. There is exposed, unfinished metal immediately under the driver seat and it is very easy to cut your hand on.

Escape 4WD 4-cyl

  • 900 miles
I was driving on southfield freeway in Michigan about 5:15 pm, I was in the left lane when traffic stopped. I stopped along with the car in front of me. At this time the car behind did not stop going somewhere between 20-40mph hit my car in the back and pushed me into the car in front of me. The air bags did not deploy even though I got hit from behind and pushed into another vehicle. The force was so strong that it broke my driver seat and my glove box. My Ford Escape was total loss in the accident. I suffered some bumps and bruises and whiplash and did go to the er for these injuries.
