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.

Mountaineer 4WD

When we took our vehicle in for the brakes to be checked, the rotors were so badly damaged from the metal peeling that they had to be replaced. The mechanic told us that for a vehicle with the amount of miles that ours had on it that this should never have happened unless the parts were defective. He told us to check for a recall on this part.
