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.

problem #3

Mountaineer AWD V6

  • Automatic transmission

Really annoying problem. Had to get it fixed due to noise while driving and concern with safety if bearing fails on major roadway. Only 76k miles on car. I easily get over 100k miles with other car models.

this is very unusual for wheel bearing to be going this often since I'm working on replacing them a third time

my front wheel bearings went out and I had them replaced. Never should've happened this early. It has been one problem after another since...And again, there are no recalls from Ford. They just don't want to stand behind their vehicles. I won't be buying another.
