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.

Escape Hybrid

  • 15 miles
The contact owns a 2008 Ford Escape hybrid. He also owns a fleet of 2008 and 2009 Ford Escape hybrid vehicles. The vehicle intermittently lost power steering. Usually after the vehicle restarts, steering became less difficult. A technician from the dealer stated that the fleet of vehicles are warranted for only 36,000 miles. The steering columns on the fleet of vehicles were replaced for $1,000 each. The repair did not remedy the failure. He was advised by the manufacturer to file a complaint with NHTSA. The failure mileage was 15. The VIN was not available. The current mileage was 60,000.
