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 purchased the car on 7/13/04, the recall came out for the front suspension system on 7/16/04. The mileage is 77,135. I heard a popping noise and took the rear tires off as it sounded like that was where the noise was coming from. I discovered the right rear coil spring was broken and was grinding into the tire. I have spoken with Ford motor and at this point, informed me that this vehicle is under no recall. They advised me to take it to the local Ford dealership. I also advised them that I was making a complaint with NHTSA. Why is the front suspension under recall and not the rear also ?? people need to be made aware of these issues with the rear suspension also.
