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.

Last June my cougar started making a noise- when I first start driving, backing up or turning the wheel , there is a cracking noise that sounds like its coming from the front. I live 6 hours away from the Ford dealership - when i took it there in August, they said they couldn't hear this noise, but that they checked everything and it wasn't a safety issue. One year later it's still doing it and driving me crazy! What do you think it is and how much to fix it? Do you think it's a safety issue? Thankyou!!!
