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 4WD 4-cyl

  • 999,750 miles
I had my 2008 Ford Escape hybrid serviced at koons Ford after receiving safety recall 14S05 from Ford Motor Company. The recall is to repair a potential safety issue related to the electric power steering system. After receiving the repair to correct the issue in safety recall notice 14so5, my vehicle developed steering / suspension problems. At highway speeds the steering on the Ford escape is now very sensitive causing the vehicle to feel unsteady at times. (if feels like it is swaying slightly from side to side.) we first noticed the issue within a week of having the repair done. As we caravanned to our summer vacation, my wife was driving behind me on the highway. At a rest stop she asked if I was tired and having trouble driving. She informed that from her vantage point it looked like the car was swerving. I was well rested and shared with her that it also felt as though the steering / suspension was loose. We have also noticed, at low speeds, that the steering wheel has more play to it now.
