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.

: the contact stated the driver's side power seat mechanism does not work properly, resulting in driver's inability to view the road. The seat moves up and down, but will not go forward or backward. The dealership determined the mechanism needed to be replaced. Updated 3/17/2006 - right front axle leaked, windshield washers failed. The glass in the driver's side window would not go up. The door locks locked the consumer out of the vehicle. The horn was difficult to locate. The rear tailgate window exploded.

I have had the drive train from the transmission back replaced and still have a vibration thruoughout the vehicle. Along with this it is difficult to stay in your lane while driving. The fix from Ford was to hang a twenty or so pound wieght off the differential. Through the tsb on the veichle print out I was also informed to watch out for the tires spinning on the wheel form 45 - 80 mph (Ford tsb - special service message 11276 under vibrations concerns)
