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.

Vehicle continues to wear out brand new tires every 5 to 10K miles. I have kept up on alignment, tire rotating and terms this problem continue. I have read a great deal of other complaints. The manager or employee at the tire dealer says that this is a problem with Ford Flex. He says that he gets quite a number of them coming in with this issue. This can become a dangerous problem

While driving on dry pavement the rear end slides as if driving in rain or snow.it really sways while braking. Know indicator light comes on to suggest slippery conditions. I had this scary problem check out by professional mechanics. They felt the wobbly sensation when driving 40 miles hr. They only noted a combination of minor conditions like tire threads, oil leak from a shock and a small rod that is attached to the left back tire that had a little movement.. these issues however shouldn't cause this very dangerous slippery experience according to the mechanics.

I was attempting to change the tire, while jacking up the car it became difficult. I stopped, and lowerd the car. Then examined the jack and found that the threaded nut that the up and down adjusting rod threads thru was cracked open.this nut looks to be of some type of pot metal, unlike the rest of jack wich is steel. I talked to Ford Motor Co and they said the most they might do is replace the jack. That jack is an accident waiting to happen. I want a safe jack.

I purchased a 2011 Ford Flex new. At 24000 miles my tires were bad and needed replacing. The tires were defective. The dealer had me pay half price. At 48 K the new tires are again bad and need replacing. Many complaints online of Ford Flex owners with substandard tires. Ford must be aware of this when 7 out 10 people come in with this problem. Owners should be given new tires of a different make at Ford expense. My car was looked at by a tire repair shop tire kingdom who explained the tires Ford provides for the Flex are not intended for a vehicle of that make and weight gvw.
