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.

While driving with my four children the vehicle will down shift all of a sudden while traveling down the freeway. Brought it to the dealership and was told it was not under warranty they said to call the Ford 1-800 #. called 1-800 # and was told that it was not on the recall yet. So I am expected to pay for a repair which could be placed on a recall list. The diagnosis was the lead frame and the same issues as the recall.

Paint blisters are starting to appear on rear lift gate. Dealer has indicated that this is not rust but corrosion due to the aluminium material that the lift gate is made of and poor prep work or contamination from the factory paint. They indicated that they have seen this before and it will most likely continue until the lift gate is repainted. They also told me the hood may also have this issue in the future since it is also aluminum. A car that is three years old and garage kept should not have blistering paint. My other vehicle is over 10 years old and besides chips the paint is fine.

Spontaneous and complete failure of passenger side third row/cargo glass. No other cars in sight on a smooth road, approximately 72 degrees outside. Traveling slightly below highway speed as we had just come through a curve. Loud popping sound and the entire window was simply gone, broken in a million shards that went every direction, inside and outside of the vehicle. Glass embedded in second row seat backs, and all items in cargo area. Visible scratches and gouges in plastic surrounding the window from the force of the glass hitting it. Had anyone been sitting in the third row, they would have been seriously injured.
