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 discovered a leaky rear shock absorber on my 2006 Ford truck while still under warranty. I took it to my dealer who confirmed that the shock absorber was defective and would replace it, but not the pair. Every professional shop that I have spoken with, to include the Ford dealer, says shock absorbers should always be replaced in pairs, but Ford refuses to replace the pair--it says it will only replace the defective one. I appealed to Ford Motor Corp and they too refused. I believe that is wrong and unsafe.
