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.

I have a 2001 Ford Econoline wagon van that was recalled about June of 2007 because of a defect with the cruise control. When I took it to the Ford dealership in americus, Georgia, they said they didn't have any parts to repair the cruise control. That it was on back order. It has been almost 1 year and still they have not offered to repair the cruise control their reason is they don't have any parts.
