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.

The dash on the passenger air bag protruded out several months ago. I can see the airbag in the gap from where the dash has stuck out. With the and humid weather in Tennessee this last weeks, it appears the protrusion is getting worse. I have seen several complaints on this issue. My car is on the recall for the takata inflators issues and Ford needs to have a recall and determine how to correct dash from protruding. I am very very very concerned with any passengers in my car and for myself if the air bag explodes and if no one is injured I am concerned if I can driving the exploding air bag could cause me to have an accident. Please look into this issues. I know Ford did change the dash design in all newer vehicles. Thank you very much for your time. Please look into this dash-airbag issue.

Dashboard vinyl and padding is bulging away from the passenger airbag panel. This seems to be a safety issue as the airbag may not deploy properly in an accident, or may deploy at any time without an accident and injure the passenger. Sometimes airbag light goes on. Although the dashboard looks unsightly, this is not a cosmetic issue, it is a safety issue!!

Dash is lifting beneath the passenger side airbag. I'm afraid the air bag either may deploy unexpectedly or not at all.

The dashboard on top of where the air bag is bowing up causing a space where there shouldn't be. I'm scared that the airbag will deploy on it's own with no reason.

Dashboard cover area over passenger side airbag is starting to bulge and I can see airbag. Concerned about failure of airbag to deploy or premature deployment. Internet search has found this is a common defect and apparently Ford does not do anything if the vehicle is out of warranty, which, mine is. I am the original owner and the vehicle has never been in any type of mishap to cause this problem. Lets get Ford to repair or remedy the vehicles that have this fault.

The airbag is sticking out of the dashboard and Ford doesn't want to do anything about it. I believe that being this is safety concern and should be covered by Ford. I have contacted them because we have a concern that the airbag will fail or just blow out of the dashboard without any notice.

Ford Fusion 2007: Center brake light blocks the driver's rearward field of vision. The car already has a very high trunk lid. Placing the brake light just above the trunk, in the rear window, manages to block out any car directly behind - upward to 50 feet behind the car. The light should be mounted at the top of the rear window or at the top of trunk, just above the the bumper and integrated into the trunk lid. *updated 12/12/07
