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.

Failed inspection due to rust and corrosion on sub frame. Engine light on consistent with recent recall of Ford edge due to rust and corrosion. Car has only 72,703 miles and is in very good condition. Other Freestyle owners have noted similar dangerous corrosion on sub frame due to "substandard steel and alloys."

The contact owns a 2007 Ford Freestyle. The contact entered the vehicle and noticed it was damp. The vehicle was inspected by an independent mechanic, who discovered that water had leaked inside of the vehicle. The vehicle was not repaired and the manufacturer was notified of the incident. The approximate failure mileage was 27,000.

Our car was quite new. My daughters and I were in the car at a stop light. Someone was in front of me at the time and they were making a right hand turn. When I was slightly rolling forward I applied pressure to the brake and my car jumped or lunged forward-causing an accident with 4 kids and 2 adults involved. This is the first of many incidents with my car proactively moving.
