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.

I was totally pissed. I looked through my manual and even called Ford. The bearings are supposed to be LIFETIME. Lastime I checked that meant at least 100,000 miles. I was at 50,000 when my rear bearings on both wheels went. Then at 62,000 miles my front bearings went.
