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.

I was at my dealership to have my tires rotated and they stated that they had difficulty getting my lug nuts off. They stated that my lug nuts "were swullen". I have been driving for over 50 years and never heard of this before. They said that I need to buy new ones at a cost of $75-$100. I was very upset with this and left. I looked this problem up on the internet and see that hundreds of people have had the same problem. It seems that Ford had a cheaper lug nut produced with the nut being covered with a cheaper material used to make the cap that covers the nut. Moisture gets in between the two metals causing condensation and " swelling". I now have covers actually falling off the nut. My question is: Why, if there are so many problems that have been reported, why hasn't the problem been resolved/ recalled" why hasn't the NHTSA gotten involved? we do pay taxes for gov. Agencies to oversee safety issues such as this. Or better yet, why hasn't Ford stepped up and taken care of this problem" I am thinking of buying a Chevy now. They don't have "swullen" lug nuts.

Fusion Hybrid 4-cyl

  • 860 miles
Driving to work when all of a sudden it became incredibly difficult to steer and control car. I was veering at first to the left then to the right. I tried not to hit the person on my right and slammed on the brakes, which caused me to fishtail and hit the guy anyway. My rear driver's side tire was completely gone-only a rim remained. This car has barely 800 miles on it....scary and sad for the guy I hit...me-completely spooked and very disappointed albeit grateful to be alive and not run over by oncoming traffic...:(
