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.

Power window regulator failure 2004 Ford Expedition. Third occurrence and a very costly repair. If trapped in the vehicle the window cannot be rolled down. Cables keep fraying and jamming the operation of the window regulators operation.

While driving to work this morning my husband and I hit a pothole in the road and the window fell into the door. The window was up at the time. The dealer said thiswas not Ford's problem because they did not have to replace anything, just fix the window track so it was costing us to fix a problem with the window that we have no control over.
