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.

: the contact stated that the front end of the vehicle made a consistent, loud squeaking noise. The vehicle was taken to a service dealer, where the hood was lubricated and adjusted. The repair was not successful in fixing the problem. Also, when the brakes were depressed, the vehicle lurched forward. The service dealer was unable to determine the cause of the brake problem. Updated 9/20/2006 - the vehicle's brake booster and front suspension also made noise.

Problems with vehicle vibration while driving. The consumer took the vehicle to the shop several times and the problem had not been fixed. The consumer had a warranty. The dealer was aware of the problem, there was just no way to fix it. The vehicle vibrated while in gear, waiting at a stop light or stop sign.

Grand Marquis 8-cyl

  • 125 miles
While driving at 40 mph, the vehicle shimmied in the front. The vehicle was taken to the dealership, where the mechanic re-balanced and aligned the tires. The problem still existed after being taken to an independent mechanic. This was an on going problem since the beginning of purchase. The consumer had an adjudication to take the vehicle back to the dealership. The vehicle had been back to the dealer on many occasions for the shimmy in the front. The dealership replaced all four tires and the driveshaft assembly. The vehicle developed an oil leak that was also ongoing, so the dealer replaced the oil pan/oil pan gasket and the rear main crank shaft seal. The ignition coil assembly had to be replaced as well. When the weather was cold, the hood would not pop open and the right front door did not close properly.
