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.

2006 Ford Mustang Owner Comments

Mustang 8-cyl

Traveling on Saturday evening on 2/4/06, roads somewhat slick, snow turning to black ice on road. Lost control of vehicle on black ice doing 30-35 mph on residential street. Car fish tailed hit curb with right rear, which spun car into roadway, hit right front on opposite curb. Car under control after that. Lost right rear tire / wheel assembly broke off the axle-at initial impact- however no damage to tire, rim slight dent. After accident looked at axle-seemed porous, concerned...poor quality, poor manufacturing. Contacted insurance, towed vehicle to dealer. Waiting for adjuster to look at vehicle.
