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.

Door ajar light started coming on for driver's side rear door. You could get out and slam the door and it would go out. This has been steadly getting worse. Now anytime you get in the car, you do not have to open the rear door and the door ajar light comes on and the inside dome lights come on. I can say "ok" to the notice and the message will disappear but the small car indicator will stay on on the dash. The real problem is the inside dome lights will not go out until the car picks up some speed. This is a real problem at night especially if you are trying to back out of a parking space and the lights are on inside the car. I am not sure of the exact date that this started, but it has been going on for several months. I just picked a date below.

Door ajar warning. There's a common issue with many Ford where there's an issue in the door latch assembly that triggers the door ajar warning light and leaves the dome lights on. This is a safety issue if one is trying to reclose the (already closed) door while the car is moving and the dome light remaining on affects night vision. This happens after car is started and remains all the time the car is turns on - in motion or not

The driver side front door latch isn't working properly, I will be driving down the road and all my interior lights will come on and a message will appear and it says my door is open, this is very unsafe because it has happened at night, it is very distracting to drive at night with all the interior lights and you have to wait until they go off, this issue has to be fix asap. I've read this is a common problem with the Ford Edge and many other models for makes.

We had the oil changed by Ford dealer here in winchester, tn and every since then, when I get in the car and close the drivers door closes, but a notice on the dash states " drivers door is ajar". no matter how many times I close the door, the message stays the same. Once in a while it will go away.

Door ajar light comes on with all doors closed. The drivers door is the one affected. This turns on the dome light which can cause the battery to drain leaving a person stranded. Also, it causes the brake and parking lights to come on with no one in the vehicle. The door ajar light also prevents the doors from locking with the key in the ignition. The door ajar light comes on whether the car is turned on or not. The dealer said that they have to replace the drivers door latch. I had Ford repair this problem in the past. I have it in the Ford dealer again today for the same repair. I've uploaded the receipt from first repair. My car is still being worked on at Ford dealership and I don't have the receipt yet for the second repair. I think this should be a recall on this vehicle.

problem #61

Without any forewarning, we were driving along and heard and felt several loud pops coming from under the hood. When we stopped, we found a broken windshield, the passenger side wheel/tire had collapsed into the wheel well, and the engine hood was pushed up roughly 6" above where it's supposed to be. Upon initial inspection, we noticed that the passenger side strut tower, which is of a ridiculously weak 2-piece design, the 2 pieces had completely separated from each other. No potholes or other road hazards were hit, we were driving in a straight line. The approximate 9 spot welds holding the two pieces of the strut tower together completely separated. When the vehicle was inspected by 2 separate shops, both claimed that was absolutely no damage to any other suspension components, including control arms, ball joints, sway bar, sway bar end links, or anything else that would've caused the strut tower to break in such a fashion. Several incidents of this have been reported online and references can be shared upon request.
