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. Notes: The Freestar was introduced in 2004, but it was essentially just a rebranded Windstar. While there was a redesign of the interior and exterior, the Freestar still inherited some of the design flaws of its predecessor.

The contact owns a 2004 Ford Freestar. The contact received a recall notice in 2004, which stated that two rotors and the front hubs of the vehicle needed to be replaced. The two rotors were replaced, but the front hubs were not. The contact began experiencing failures with the front hubs and contacted both the service dealer and Ford. The failure was noticed while driving 3 mph. The dealer stated that they were not responsible because the hubs were not replaced at the time of the recall. The recall # was unavailable. The current mileage is 45,574 and failure mileage was 45,400.
