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 few colorful words for Ford.... just use your imagination as to what finger I am holding up... it sure isn't my thumb. I should have got rid of it when I was not notified of a recall for the VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL and it caught on fire a year ago. Ford refused to replace what was fire damaged.... only the recall part. Then when they "fixed" it I still had no speed control so what did they fix? NOTHING! Not only that, the fire blew out fuses to my windows and A/C. After Ford "replaced" the part I am out in the parking lot trying to figure fuses so I can roll my windows down or turn on A/C (summer time, 95 outside and had all 5 of my kids with me), a mechanic that knew my whole ordeal walks by and asked if everything was okay. I explain to him that I don't know which fuse is for my windows or A/C. He just chuckles and says "Well at least no more fires." and walks away without offering to aid a mother with 5 kids!
