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.

2004 Taurus SE - continual chirping noise from my wheel covers. At first I thought it was the breaks or bearings. Tsb said to pack wheel covers with felt. Have been back to the dealership 3 times due to noise. Poor wheel cover design by Ford. I am expecting to have current wheels replaced with aluminum.

Continually "chirping" noise while car is moving. Dealership stated that it was in the wheels. Was told that this can not be corrected because the manufacturer has not been able to address this problem. Complaints have been filed to Ford and they generated a letter to dealers telling them not to replace things because they do not know what is causing this. Meanwhile, I have to drive a brand new car that sounds loud and annoying.
