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 noticed a leak under my vehicle and discovered the air conditioner compressor leaking. I am preparing to take it to the dealer for repairs. I am aware that the same problems exist on numerous 2005 and 2006 models. I hope that Ford will take some action to assist the many customers with the same problem. I believe a recall is required!

The contact owns a 2006 Ford Five hundred. The contact stated that the air conditioning unit failed and would not blow cold air. The vehicle was taken to a local mechanic who added coolant to the air conditioning system but the failure was not corrected. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 70,000 and the current mileage was 100,000.

Air conditioning unit started making noises last year (approx. August). Took it to the dealership and they told me the compressor was going. They also said there are so many problems with that compressor that they would not be able to get one until February.
