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.

Our 2000 Ford Excursion is a $50K plus vehicle. We have babied it from the first day we bought it (about 6 years ago). We have always kept it waxed and well cared for. Recently I noticed that all the paint on the top along the channels of the luggage rack has peeled down to bare metal. There is obviously a problem with the paint/primer that was used for it to peel as cleanly as it did. Just as there was a problem in the 90's with the same issues. Since Ford had to pay out so much to correct there faulty work during the 90's they have now decided that paint is only guaranteed to stay on the vehicle for 3yrs/36000 miles. Other that that owners are out of luck. I guess as long as Ford says they are no longer responsible for shoddy products that makes it true.

WITH ONLY HAVING TO KEEP THE PAINT ON THE VEHICLE THREE YEARS THEY CAN START USING RATTLE CANS ON ALL NEW VEHICLES. ONCE THE THREE YEARS HAVE PASSED, THEN WHO CARES IF YOUR $50K VEHICLE LOOKS LIKE CRAP.............MAYBE YOU WILL BE AN IDIOT AND GO BUY ANOTHER FORD!
