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

Dec 052007

Freestyle 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 22,000 miles


Pirelli tires on 2006 Ford Freestyle ltd AWD- excessive premature tire wear on inside portion of treads. Only 22,000 miles on vehicle and steel chords are protruding from tire and causing a serious safety issue. Dealer was the exclusive service provider on the vehicle but never indicated any excessive wear until tire warranty had expired. Stated cause was wheel toe or camber being too much. Service department cannot determine whether driving style or factory defect is to blame. However, for a tire rated to wear for approximately 50,000 miles to be worn out in normal driving conditions is unacceptable. Manufacturer claims this is not covered in any warranty. No prorating or compensation to correct the problem was offered.
