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.

My vehicle was taken to the Ford collision center in durham, North Carolina after I heard rubbing on the right rear tire while driving on a highway. The rust corrosion of the rear wheel wells is so severe that the Ford service manager at university Ford in durham, North Carolina refuses to do the repair as specified by Ford Motor Company because he believes the vehicle would still be unsafe. I have already filed a complaint with NHTSA (10913700) but I request help in compelling Ford Motor Company to either perform a proper repair or repurchase the vehicle.

The entire unit that locks the 3rd row seat came loose from the wheel well due to corrosion. I looked up the recall information, and there is a recall for my van make and model year, but due to the fact that I bought this van new in northern Kentucky, and have lived in northern Kentucky ever since, Ford has decided that the recall does not apply to me, although clearly, it is exactly what has happened under the recall. Northern Kentucky borders Ohio, and Ohio vehicles are included in the recall. It is ridiculous that the recall is by state, and Ford is choosing to let this safety hazard go.
