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.

2007 Ford Freestyle Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 182007

Freestyle 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 6,300 miles


The contact owns a 2007 Ford Freestyle. The contact stated that his vehicle began to shake and rattle while driving. He took his vehicle to the dealer for repair and they discovered that during the assembly of his vehicle, the bolts to the front bumper were never installed. The second time he brought his vehicle to the dealer was for the transmission. The bolts that hold the transmission pan in place were only installed manually and not with the proper machinery. The current and failure mileages were 6,300.
