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.

2006 Ford Five hundred. Consumer writes regarding premature pad and rotor wear the consumer stated she heard a grinding noise and/or dragging noise coming from the rear wheels. The left and right wheels needed new brakes and rotors. The consumer stated an extended warranty had been issued for the brakes in 2007, because Ford knew there was a problem. Also, the blower motor behind the glove box had to be replaced and the rear window defroster was defective and had to be replaced as well. The gasket between the crank shaft support housing was replaced.
