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.

Transit Connect 4-cyl

  • 39,800 miles
Premature break wear...front breaks needed to be replaced at just under 30,000 miles including need for new rotors. At 39800, told by dealership that front brake pads and rotors needed to be replaced again. Ford is saying there is a problem with premature break wear, but this is very, very dangerous and could result in brake failure.
