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.

Mustang 8-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 20 miles


Contact stated that there was a small amount of brake fluid that was leaking from the cap on the master cylinder. The service dealer replaced the cap on the master cylinder to remedy the problem. This did not stop the brake fluid from leaking. The concern was that the brake fluid was leaking onto the structure of the vehicle. Over time, this may cause excessive corrosion on the structure of the vehicle. The service advisor stated that this was normal for this model. Another complaint the contact stated T was that he power driven seat made a creaking noise. The dealer would adjust the seat to keep it from creaking. The concern was that if he has to adjust the seat while driving it may cause the contact to become distracted and could result in an accident.
