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.

2006 Ford Freestyle Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 172013

Freestyle 6-cyl

  • 86,000 miles


It was below freezing out and some of my passenger doors would not open and the one that did open would not close again. I see that there is a recall on this part for the 05 Freestyles but Ford will not perform the recall fix on my 06 Freestyle because the build date does not match the recall specifications. The recall I am referring to is 06S45. My car was built a week or two after the end of that specific recall event. I am experiencing the same door lock issues in cold climate. Ford refuses to fix this safety issue forcing my family into unsafe situations when it is cold.
