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.

The contact owns a 2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac. The contact stated that in February 2008, the radiator began leaking. She took the vehicle to the dealership and the radiator was replaced (under warranty) as it could not be repaired. In February 2010, the radiator began leaking again so she took it back to the dealership and was told that she would have to replace the radiator again at her own expense. She called the manufacturer and was told that they could not assist her. The vehicle had not been repaired at the time of the complaint. The current and failure mileages were approximately 53,000.
