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 car has problems with rear caster alignment. According to Ford and others there is no alignment for rear caster. I started noticing problems at approximately 15K miles. After taking it to an alignment shop with no fix I took it to a Ford dealer. They convinced me it would only be minor wear on the rear tires. I am now on my 3rd set of tires at 49K and after taking it to more alignment shops and a frame shop. The local Ford dealer and Ford said I had sagging springs (I was not convinced). They replaced and said it was fixed. I told them I would have it double checked. Guess what it still is out of alignment with the same readings I originally took it in for.

Front and rear coil springs snapped while sitting at my residence. The rear broke last year and the front broke yesterday, 11/20/2008. Had to replaced both front and rear springs plus a tire in the front that was punctured when it snapped. I just purchased all new tires a month ago. This could have cause a major accident if it had happened while driving.
