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 at a stop sign. When I got ready to turn right, my steering wheel turned but my tires didn't. I had it towed to my home and then towed to a local Ford company. I was told by an employee there that my car was not approved for the recall repair because of some other damages. The steering gear and column went out as well. I was told that I had to buy the parts to fix the car.

Steering became difficult, hard or chunky steering while driving when making turns. Ford made needed repairs and replaced upper steering shaft. I thought it should have been covered under Ford recall # 13S08 or 14S25
