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 #2

In rainy/snowy weather horn fails to work intermittently. Therefore, consumer is unable to warn other drivers. Dealership was notified, but did not resolve the problem.

problem #1

Dec 012004

E-150 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 10,000 miles
During very wet weather, the horn does not work or works very faintly. This has happened multiple times. The van is a 2002. I have always had the recommended maintenance performd by the Ford dealership. I made a complaint to them on 2 occasions and was told there is nothing they can do about it. I have not had any incidents other than hitting my horn and having little noise come out. I am afraid that when I need the horn it will not work in wet weather.
