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.

WHEEL BEARING ASSEMBLY FAILURE. HAD TO REPLACE BOTH FRONT WHEEL BEARING ASSEMBLIES. WHY CAN''T FORD ADD A LUBE FITTING? IF THEY DID IT WOULD MAKE LIFE A LOT EASIER. I AM SURE IT WAS ENGINEERED WITHOUT ONE SO THEY COULD MAKE MORE MONEY. BUT I WILL NEVER GO TO A DEALER OR BUY AN OEM PART FROM ANY CAR MANUFACTURER UNLESS NO ONE ELSE MAKES AN EQUAL. YOU JUST CAN'T REPLACE THE THINGS ON THE FRONT WHEELS, MUST HAVE A FRONT END ALIGNMENT DONE ALSO. AT 50K MILES THIS IS RIDICULOUS!!!!
