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.

Within 1,000 miles the back up sensor rang when ever you put the car into reserve - has been serviced three times still does it today. Within 5,000 the mirrors would tilt too far to the outside then pop as they tried to continue to move further outside. Within 18,000 1)advancetrac light came cause the right front brake to lock up when turning left and the left front brake to lock up when turning right. Engine was shutting down going traveling at 70 mph. Transmission would not change out to next gear until very high RPM. Pop and clicking noises from under the dash (front passanger and drive side). Engine would not start. - authorized Ford blue oval repair center has replaced 2 ABS modules, the battery, made repairs to the wiring harness, replaced two other computer modules. Car was in the shop for three weeks and returned three times. Vehicle is still not correct.
