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 called and emailed Ford directly about my brakes failing because there was NO warning, no squeek, nothing. One minute I had brakes the next I didn't and drove directly to the dealer and was told my front pads were worn out and they damaged the rotors and with these new rotors there is not grinding them, you have to replace them because they are so thin. I was told that was the new design of the rotors, way to get money out of your customers Ford. We just bought a new car and thought we would always buy Ford like we have for the past 23 years, but guess what we bought a Subaru!
