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.

Van stalls at lights. Just cuts off. Mechanic said it has some thing to do with the PCM. Trans has been replaced. But still having problems with that. Rear brake calipers ceased up. This van is a road hazard. Never know what it is going to do or when it is going to fail.

The contact owns a 2005 Ford Freestar. While backing out of a driveway and attempting to pull forward, the cable that holds the spare tire under the vehicle snapped and the tire came off. The contact spoke with the mechanic and was informed to call NHTSA. The purchase date and speed were unknown. The current and failure mileages were 61,000.
