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 was driving home from work and it felt like i had run over a big dog or something and my steering wheel turned 90 degrees to keep going straight til i could stop. Had it towed to my mechanic and he said it was lucky i didn't wreck at 65 mph. The crossmember snapped off right next to my passenger tire. I paid 700.00 to replace crossmember and changed all the tie rods myself. It still isnt the same but im outta money right now and don't wanna put more into it. By the way it made for a crappy Christmas for my kids too.

OK FORD COME ON THIS PART SHOULD BE RECALLED BECAUSE ITS ONE ALMOST EVERY VEHICLE I HAVE WORKED ON MAD FROM YOU BETWEEN THE YEARS OF 99-03, AND ITS FUNNY THAT IT IS ONLY SEEN ON THE PASSENGER SIDE. I WOULD UNDER STAND IF IT WAS IN DIFFERENT AREAS OTHER THEN THE BACK PASSENGER SIDE IN THE EXACT SAME SPOT ON EVERY FORD BETWEEN THEM YEARS SO PLEASE PUT A RECALL ON IT CAUSE IT IS TO BE KNOWN ITS FORDS FAULT. I KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO JUST THROW FREE MONEY AROUND TO FIX THE PROBLEM, BUT I HAVE A SOLUTION DO IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME AND YOU WOULDN'T HAVE TO PUT ALL THIS OTHER MONEY OUT THERE FOR THE MISTAKE THAT HAS HAPPENED ON YOUR OWN FAULTS

THANK YOU AND PLEASE RECALL THIS PART. YOU ALL READY KNOW ITS YOUR FAULT THANKS
