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.

I purchase this car from the Ford dealership six months ago. On 04/08/2012 about 1:50 am I was heading home from airmount, NY. I was driving the car at night off a winding road going down hill. As I was driving the steering wheel lock out of no where. Then brakes started to shake.I kept pressing on the brakes and brakes would not work and fail. At that point I lost control of the car and hit a tree head on. The airbag on driver side deploy, but the passenger side never deploy it fail.
