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.

A week ago we received a recall notice for our 2001 Econoline truck concerning the fused jumper harness. We also saw it on the news. We called the Ford garage here to get this repaired and they said to call back in April. This vehicle is used every day for work and it is a great concern of ours that we are driving an unsafe vehicle and were told to wait a month! the dealership here in rochester mn. Is rochester Ford. If the parts aren't available, I want this documented that we couldn't get them. Mrs sorensen
