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.

Paint blistering/bubbling on aluminum hood and tailgate, Ford repainted saying it was totally repairable. Six months later it is back.

When washing my vehicle, I notice on the back door (the back end of the vehicle) paint missing. It is right where the handle to open the door. I can see the white material under the paint.. it is like it peeled right off or flaked off. This is in a couple other spots around the handle. I am looking for a recall but have not been sent one. Very disappointing.
