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.

Torsion bar broke while sitting in driveway. Service manager said they were defective and breaking in cold weather, I live in Micigan. There are over 50+ reports of the bars breaking, there should have been a recall or some notification. I am glad it didnt break going down the highway. The service manager was suppose to have the customer representative contact me and it never happened. Between my friends and my family Fords lost at least 6 vehicles because I wont buy another. Jack Demmer in Wayne, Mi. dont care, and I have buying cars from him since 1978. I reported it to the NHSTA , BBB, and cant get anywhere with it so it is customer pays and that is all they care about.
