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.

Had warped rotors within first 2,000 miles. Ford would only ground rotors but dealer replaced them at no charge. I have also experienced a loud, thumping noise when I am making a sharp turn to left or right at a very low speed. Also, often when putting car in reverse many times there is a large thump and vehicle appears to shift hard. Finally, when stopped on a steep hill, after removing foot from brake, vehicle rolls backwards many times.
