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

Car was parked in the drive way when my husband noticed both rear tires had 10-12 inch slits with metal exposed..took to a Ford dealership with our extended warranty and Ford takes not liability..the damage is as follows: Front end alignment, 2 tires and 2 control arms bent when vehicle was delivered by carrier...Ford admitted that, they even changed the control arms because they are not strong enough for the 2007 year model but we have to pay anyway..Ford quote was over $750. The arms are factory faulted but we have to pay...why get extended warranty then or worse we have less than 20,000 miles on car...
