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.

problem #1

Jun 062014

Escort ZX2 2.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 172,225 miles


The noise does change with different road surfaces so I do think it is the tires (going to try new tires if not, change wheel bearings), but after seeing the same problem reported here by someone else it makes me wonder!! The car does not pull to either side, make any other noises when I turn to the left or right and goes down the road pretty straight when I take my hands off the steering wheel. I just purchased it a week ago. Yeah it does have a lot of miles but it is pretty good mechanical shape still.

Any suggestions I haven't thought of????? Thanks!!
