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 Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 122006

Five Hundred 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,000 miles


I bought my 2006 Ford 500 in June of 2006. I had a problem with the rear brakes getting very dusty (on rims), so I went to the Ford dealership and asked about this problem. At the time the answer was, "those are the brakes which the manufacturer installed and there is nothing we can do about it. So, I had to accept this answer and go on about my business. At 12000 miles (December 2006) I took the car in for an oil change. When they were driving my car in for the oil change they noticed a squeeling noise coming from the rear wheels. I guess they checked the rear wheels and found excessive wear on the rear brakes. Anyhow, now they have changed and repaired the brakes. I was told when I picked up the car that there was an service bulletin on the brake problem.
