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.

Traveling home from a trip out of town, we experienced a slight pull to the right, which only happened once at the beginning of our trip. We were thinking it may be time for an alignment. As we were traveling home, we stopped for gas and upon returning to the expressway and gaining speed, something in the front right of the truck snapped. There was a loud noise and then the truck veered severely to the right. As we attempted to regain control of the truck it slammed into the concrete wall dividing the highways. My husband and I both have multiple bruises, along with quite a bit of pain at the moment. We were very fortunate to have walked away from this accident. The truck is a total loss and quite scary to look at. I do have pictures available if requested.

The contact owns a 2009 Ford Ranger. The contact discovered rust on the motor mounts and the steering pump of his vehicle. The dealer called the manufacturer and was informed that they would not replace the parts until they failed. The vehicle was purchased new on July 18, 2009, but they would not cover the failure under the warranty. The contact left the vehicle at the dealer because he refused to drive it back home; however, they still refused to make repairs. The failure mileage was 975 and current mileage was 1,075.
