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.

I have had nothing but issue after issue. It started with my brakes failing like several others that I have read. It now surrounds my 6 cd player that either melts or won't play. I have had it into the Ford dealership a few times to no avail. On 03-12-08 the electrical panel only lights up partially, and after shaking the front dash board a few time all lights popped on. I have talked to service managers and they have done what they have the ability to do. This vehicle is a 2006 Ford Freestyle and I would not recommend it to anyone for purchase.

2006 Ford Freestyle 2 wheel drive. Rear brakes prematurely wearing out. Replaced twice before 28,000 miles. Complete rotors as well. Front brake pads are cracked and rotors grooved. 31,000 total miles on vehicle. Ford says brakes failing due to cars exposure to moisture and that the pads swell causing drag. Not logical and do not believe it. Many others have same issue with Ford Freestyles.
