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.

My brakes started making a noise so I decided to get them checked. The dealer said my emergency cable had slipped and fell on my rotor and split it. They had to replace both cables, my back brakes my rotor, flush out my brake fluid and replace it I called the Ford contact number and the person I talked to you took the information down and ask if I thought Ford should be responsible to fix my car I said yes because I researched online and found a lot of 2005 for Mustangs that have had problems with their emergency brakes and cable. I think there needs to be a recall on this. Some of the people that have had this issue states the Ford puts out an internal memo but will not recall it. No at my dealership can explain how this happen. When I picked my car back up I asked is there a way I will know this will not happen again they said these cable have better rubber on them. This makes me think that the ones put on the 2005 Mustang were not good so they made new ones better. So this is why I think this needs to be recalled so no one else will have to go days without a car.
