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.

my dad has 1999 Lincoln navigator and it's been the best car he ever had so i went and bought myself a silver perfect condition Lincoln aviator thinking that it would as reliable as my dad's navi .i bought truck in agust and in September i noticed that the wheels were getting very dirty with what it look like brake dust,i thought that it was cheap brakes that the past owners put on it.so i went to the autopart store did the job myself .after i replaced the pads i went and washed and detailed the truck .couple of days later the wheels are in the same way that they were when the old pads dirty with that brake dust look a like .so i decided that i was going to take the car to the Lincoln dealership but on my way there i start it hearing a squealing and a wobble sound at the time from the back of the truck and it was getting worse by the mile so luckily i made to the dealership and they told my that they needed to replace all of the wheel bearings and hubs!!!!!

i did not have the time nor the money in the moment to do that so it spend a month and a big hole in my pocket by the all the money i needed to spend on repair Lincoln it drives fine but im NEVER GOING TO BUY ANOTHER FORD CAR AGAIN.

For several months I heard a loud roaring sound and believed it to be my new tires. The problem started shortly after getting the tires. I drove the vehicle for several months and finally, one evening it sound like I had a flat tire, but I didn't. The passenger side tire went, it began to smoke, there was a loud noise and the tire and wheel where about to completely come off. I got it to my mechanic who was able to to take the wheel off and change it out. He said this problem is common with the Ford vehicles, but the mileage was too low for such a problem. I regularly see my vehicle and other Ford explorers with great black dust on the wheel, this is symptom of the problem. Be careful, go to a reputable mechanic. One guy was going to try and get me for $2,500. My guy charged me labor of 100 per wheel and the parts came to approx. 150 each wheel. Good luck and safe driving
