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.

2007 Ford Escape hybrid. Attorney writes on behalf of consumers regarding blue ox BX2609 base plate installation. The lawyer stated his clients experienced two dangerous failures of the base plate. What made the situation extremely dangerous is that it was almost impossible for a user of the product to inspect to inspect the product for any signs of damage prior to using the base plate to tow a vehicle. Once the base plate as installed, it was usually hidden by the bumper and front facade of the vehicle. On July 25, 2088 while driving, the base plate failed which caused the tow vehicle to swing violently back and forth across lanes of traffic. The metal bracket on the bas plate attaching it to the to vehicle (Ford escape) was ripped from the metal beam part of the base plate spanning the front of the vehicle. The failure occurred at the joint between the bracket and base plate beam. In total there was about $10,000 worth of damage to both the motor home and the tow vehicle. Another base plate was sent to the consumer and installed on the vehicle. On July 25, 2012, while driving and using the allegedly redesigned blue ox base plate, the consumer discovered the tow vehicle has become disconnected and found that once again the base plate failed. The base plate beam was ripped from the metal bracket attachment points in exactly the same way in which the previous base plate had failed.
