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.

When I brake it's like the anti lock breaks are working, all the time. That can't be safe. I know the dealer noticed it when I took it in for other problems, but he didn't tell me what was wrong or offer to fix it. I'm just waiting for this car to kill me when I get rear ended in the rain and my breaks stop working.

The vehicle shakes when I apply the brakes. I took it back to the dealership & I was told I need new tires now at 20k miles. I've had not thing but problems with this car. This vehicle has had lots of recalls, no one wants to listen, not FORD, they are waiting until someone gets hurt or dies to fix the problem. I want someone to help me resolve this problem before something happens. I'm a mother & I put my son in this vehicle every day, that is not safe!!
