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.

Popping noise up front when I turn left or right, also very hard to put gas in tank my brother is a certified mechanic and he said it was the strut bearing plate making the popping noise on the passenger side. It is like $300 plus labor to replace. I have read alot of people complaining on the popping noise, this should be a recall. The gas tank should be a recall too. Thanks

Car vibrates/rumbles excessively at 70 mph, started 3000-4000 miles after I bought car. Also front end clunks like car with 100,000 miles on it. After numerous trips to dealer Ford corporate only states that this is normal for the vehicle?

When making turns left or right there is a very loud click from the front end. This is a constant occurrence, usually when the vehicle is not on level ground but when there is a slope such as in parking structures. I have taken it to the dealer regarding this problem, but they have not fixed it yet, and the parts they originally ordered they now say will not fix the problem. In addition, there seems to be a less audible click coming form under the front part of the car, usually when the heater or the air conditioning is on, which no one seems to pinpoint. This is not constant but is an off and on occurrence. Lastly, I have a problem sometimes when fueling as the pump turns off right after I begin fueling as if the tank is full when it is not. I solve this by changing the pump or gas station but it happens too often for it not to be mentioned.
