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 #2

The car developed a serious right-left jerk when ever the car was accelerated or decelerated. The Ford dealer technician determined that the left lower ball joint was loose. From the official Ford repair manual the ball joint should be at 85 ft-lbs. In my opinion a nut set to 85 ft-lbs should not have worked loose. The technician had no idea why the ball joint nut had come loose. Since this vehicle was purchased from a Ford dealer and no front end mechanical work was ever done, I believe that the ball joint nut was not set to the proper torque when the car was initially assembled. Once the Ford dealer completed the repair I asked the technician to check the right side and in fact the right side ball joint was also a little loose.

Have a 2007 Ford Freestyle and the pirelli tires on it separated at the tread line. There was apparently a tsb issued on this car regarding the suspension and despite frequent maintenance checks and services in the past two years - this occurred less than 3 weeks after a routine oil change and check up.
