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.

Went out of town for family reunion and water pump went out in the middle of no where.

Found dealership and gave them extended warranty that was sold to me. Would not honor it. Called 1-800 number for warrenty and they contacted dealership. Called me back at the hotel and said, "there paying customers come first and I would have to wait my turn." Another 2 days at hotel. Hotel mgr told me about mechanic in town. Called him, fixed car in 3hrs at cost of $377.83. Warranty would not reimburse cause I should have waited 2 days. Paid $2500.00 for extended warranty. It is now 2008 and my intrepid is looking good and not running. Needs a engine. Spent $4200.00 in repairs since 2002. Ford didn't treat me this bad!
