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.

While driving the oil filter was damaged from driving on the highway. Took the vehicle to the dealer, and was told there was a hole in the filter. Ford service center told the consumer they were to busy to assist her, and for her to take the vehicle to a quick lube to have the repair done. Quick lube changed the oil, and gave the vehicle back. Somehow, this caused the steering to lock up, and Ford will do nothing to assist the consumer.
