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.

This is the recall on the Ford van cruise control that is not an acceptable answer I plan on going across the country and I want the cruise control fixed before that. Nine months to wait for a part is customer service at its finest. Its very strange that I can get the part through the Ford dealer within two weeks if I order it from the parts department. wrote: > dear rick, > > thank you for contacting the Ford Motor Company customer relationship center regarding a fused wiring harness needed to complete the 05S28 safety recall on your 2002 Ford E-150. > > parts for the cruise control switch recall will be available in June 2008. Affected customers will receive a postcard from recall headquarters instructing them to make an appointment with their dealer to have the recall completed. We apologize for the inconvenience this situation causes, and assure you that we are doing everything possible to expedite resolution. > leonila > customer relationship center > Ford Motor Company Ford Motor Companymain topic: Vehiclewarrantyquestionsemail questions: I took the van in for the recall on the cruise control. This was done in October 07. I was told the part would be available in December. In December I was told January, then February then March. It is now April and still nothing. The dealer has been less than helpful and this problem is costing me money since the van is driven on the highway daily with no cruise control. I would like this repaired asap. I'm sure the new vehicles have the correct cable why can't I. > owner: Yesvehicle identification number: Mileage: 55000vehicle location: Inpossessionif contacted dealer: Yes dealer name:
