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.

2005 Ford Freestar Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 102008

Freestar 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 32,000 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Ford Freestar. The contact heard a loud pitching noise coming from the front end of the vehicle. He took the vehicle to the dealer on five occasions and a technician replaced the front and rear braking components, but the failure continued. The manufacturer stated that his model year was excluded from NHTSA campaign id number 04V446000 (wheels:cap/cover/hub); therefore, he would not qualify for the free remedy. The vehicle has not been repaired. The failure mileage was 32,000 and current mileage was 42,000. Updated 8/10/09 updated 08/13/09.
