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.

The vehicle has approximately 1000 miles on the odometer. In an effort to rectify squealing brakes, I checked each lug nut to ensure they were tightened to factory specification. All twenty (4 wheels with 5 lug nuts each) were only tightened to approximately 90ft-lbs of torque. Ford specifies in the owners manual that lug nuts be torqued to 150ft-lbs. I used two different styles of torque wrench to conduct my test. One type was used to loosen ten lug nuts and another was used to loosen the remaining ten. My intent was to rule out any gross error in torque readings. To my knowledge the wheels have never been removed from the vehicle, therefore I see three possibilities: The dealer removed the wheels for some reason and did not torque to specification or the lug nuts are loosening themselves evenly or they were not torqued to specification from the factory. I feel the most likely scenario is that they were not torqued to specification from the factory.

Temporary loss of control of vehicle due to shaking, popping, vibration and loud noise from steering assembly, car wheels and steering wheel when initiating initial movement of vehicle from a cold condition (startup from a cold/parked state). This has happened repeatedly on an intermittent basis in the four months that I have owned this vehicle.
