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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: Has the power steering started to show signs of failure in the 2014? Yeah, a little. Am I confident it will become a bigger problem over time? Yeah, a lot.

Goodyear dot mmfujnr33815 Goodyear tire mts/235/45R18 94V. Second tire I had to replace on new Ford Fusion (nitrogen). 1st the whole sidewall completely seperated from tire. Service dept. At Ford said they have never seen that happen before. Said it was a defective tire. Now I have a golf ball size lump on my sidewall of the tire. No apparent reason. It is time for Goodyear to be investigated & reimburse consumers. Someone is going to die. I found the defect before any blowout or accident.

Factory oem Goodyear Eagle ls-2S claim to be all season. From the first test drive these tires failed to have anything close to reasonable traction on snow and ice, resulting in the sales-rep being barely able to back the car out of the lot for a test-drive. Needless to say I wasn't thrilled about them. After getting the car onto the road, it seemed to do better, so I went ahead and purchased the vehicle. After owning it for less than 48 hours, had several incidents with stopping, cornering and acceleration where the traction control, anti-lock breaks all functioning normally, just the tires not having any sort of reasonable grip or traction. In one instance, I slid through an intersection when trying to stop at 5mph. In another instance it took me most of a minute to go through a single-lane intersection because the front tires were turning so slowly because the traction control was stuttering the wheel turn as the tires kept losing grip/traction. Repeated complaints through the sales and service department, even with the sales people admitting the tires were bad for winter and the service manager flat out saying, and I quote, "those ls2S are sh*t for winter", nothing was done to replace them with a comparable tire that was a true all-season tire. Complaining to the factory only nets me repeated instructions to pay Ford to do a diagnostic on the car, refusing to even Focus on the tire problem. These tires from Goodyear should never have been allowed to be marked as all-season. At best they are fair-weather spring/summer/fall tires, at worst, they are dry area summer only tires. Like others, I've had issues with traction on just wet roads, let alone snowy or icy.

I have a 2014 Ford Fusion that comes with Continental tires. In the 14 months I have owned the car, I have had 2 tires blow out. Prior to this car I never had a flat tire, now I've had 2. the first blowout was at 1000 miles and the second tire blew out at 8000 miles. Both happened on roads where all the other cars drove by without issue. There are complaints all over the internet about how easily Continental tires blow out. This is a serious safety risk and also the tires were almost $300 each to replace. Both Ford and Continental should take responsibility for this faulty product and address the safety issue before someone gets seriously injured or killed. Also the tire wrench that comes with the car bent while taking the lugs off, Ford replaced it once, the replacement one also bent while changing the second blown tire.
