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.

  • 3,200 miles


After driving 3200 mile. We noticed water drops from 1/8 TO3/16 of an inch in the driver side rear tail lights.. in the morning I took the auto to Ford dealership where I purchased it. They took pictures of the fine water droplets and sent the pictures and other info to main Ford offices. I was called back a few hours later. Notified that this was normal and water will go out the lens's valve. When I said I would bring it back daily if needed to solve problem. I was told not to do so unless a different picture could be taken because it took all of 3 hours of his time to review and decide what to do, which was nothing.
