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.

In September 2009 I had to have the ABS tone ring on drivers side replaced because I was having issues where breaks would "slip" when breaking- they would engage for a bit then slip and re-engage. This issue didn't prove to be dangerous for me, but could have been. The end of may I began having the same issues again and I knew what the problem was so I took it into dealer where they replaced the passenger side ABS ring- problem seemed to be solved. Until the next day when I was driving home from work on the highway and lost my breaks completely- less than 24 hours after they had serviced the breaks. Had car towed to dealer where they informed me that the master cylinder was bad and needed replaced- for $1400. This is not something that I believe I can wear unusually so that it would go bad like this, and so suddenly. It was an extremely dangerous situation it put me into where I was unable to stop my car without the use of the emergency brakes. I do not understand how the Toyota break issues were recalled but this one has not been, it seems after searching the internet that this is not an uncommon problem with the Ford Escape hybrids. I feel let down by whatever Agency it is that should be regulating this issue and by Ford who until now I thought was a respectable corporation.

I own a 07 Ford escape with 30,000 mile on it. Last week the ABS brake system engaging when there is no need for it to. When stopping the vehicle on Jan.28 2010 the vehicle began to buck badly. After stopping again at the next stop it bucked once more, as I drove off the ABS light came on and the message center list both "service brake system" and service 4X4 system" I took the car to the dealership on Jan 29 and was told that the ABS system tone ring for the left front wheel was defective and needed to be replace (cost $325) I have found on the internet that this seem to be a common replacement part on Ford and Mercury of this model and year. I feel this is a problem that Ford should be recalling. (the dealership kept the old part).
