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 have owned at least 20 cars and never had a problem with tie rods, no warranty even though I believe this should have been a policy claim, Ford blew me off, this vehicle has always been dealer serviced, never ventured out in the winter and for the first 7 years was garaged. This is the first and last Ford, I think FIX OR REPAIR DAILY is becoming the norm for this car, every repair now is costing 8-10% of the vehicles value, perhaps I should buy another one to cannibalize, probably cheaper in the long run
