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.

Sever wining in front axels. Fills like it don't want to spine but it works fin in two wheel drive.The hole front end is shot tie-rod ends, ball joints, shocks you name it . I got it last year and it had not yet been serviced for the sway bar linkage recall.I don't think the front end would be so bad if it wasn't for the recall . I think that Ford should have to fix it.
