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.

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

I have three complaints regarding my vehicle. I purchased a 2006 Freestyle in June of 2006. In October 2006 my son and I were involved in an accident. There was extensive front end damage resulting in over $10,000 in repairs. The car jumped over two ravines, both times severely impacting the ground. Almost the entire front part of the car had to be replaced, including the radiators, grill, bumper, etc. The air bags did not deploy. Also, I have had to have the tires replaced two times making the latest the third set of tires on this vehicle. The set of tires I just had replaced were 60,000 mile Continental touring tires. They had uneven, choppy, wear and were approximately 8 months old. I am on the second set of brakes, both front and rear and have had the rear rotors replaced.. the vehicle currently has approximately 39,000 miles on it. The premature, uneven tire wear and the brake wear are excessive compared to any other vehicle I have ever owned. I feel very fortunate that the accident we were involved did not result in bodily injury for either me or my 22 year old son.
