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.

The contact's daughter lost total control of the vehicle. The roads were dry and she was driving 40-50 mph. The vehicle started to spin and hit a guard rail. Upon impact, the airbags did not deploy. The vehicle was towed to the Ford dealership. She was unaware if anything was done. The vehicle was taken to an auto body shop. The tow truck driver stated, at the scene, it was a problem with the steering column. The vehicle was totaled. She was unsure if a police report was taken.
