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.

Sable 6-cyl

The power steering in the consumer's 2001 Mercury Sable station wagon failed. The consumer opened the hood of the vehicle and found that the belt was loose and that the spring loaded belt idler pulley was hanging in parts on the engine block. It was determined that the pulley assembly could not be repaired. The consumer requested that Ford reimburse him for the cost of replacing the defective spring loaded idler pulley assembly.
