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.

From the original purchase to now 95K miles I have complained of a ongoing problem with the front end of our 2005 Ford Explorer sports trac. They have replace a number of part and continue to tell us that its a characteristic of the vehicle to have vibration. I have asked several time for them to take the vehicle back with them refusing. They haven't been able to fix it. As 100% disabled ptsd veteran I have hit my limit with them. This is a piece of crap and I pay almost 600 a month and have to fix it all the time.

While driving for the organization meals on wheels, I proceeded to try and shift from park to reverse and the steering or gear shift lever snapped off. I was unable to put my car into gear and called a tow truck which towed the car to a Ford dealership for repairs. I am waiting for an estimate from the service center.
