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.

Can someone tell me why Ford would put a $25 part in a place that requires $650 to repair?!

I just paid $1500 to replace the compressor so that I could get cold air and now the blend door (a problem that I have had for 1.5 years) is officially is broken and pumping hot air into the car. This is a MAJOR inconvenience when you live in the AZ desert and it is triple digits outside.

I had to walk away without getting it repaired because I am tapped with the $1500 repair just 3 weeks earlier!! WTH?

Reading on this site I see people have the problem of the air stuck on cold in the winter - how come I can't have stiuck on cold?! I turn on the air, you start to feel it getting just a little cold (with the tell tale clicking noise of the broken blend door) and within 3 min you hear a louder noise (of something closing) and here come the hot air.

I don't want a car payment, but this is seriously having consider it! If I was to pay this money to repair it doesn't guarantee that I won't a totally different repair on the coming up.

I don't mind pouring maintenance money into the car, but I want it to be for things that I USE on the car - like brakes. I have to spend that on any car, but $650 to remove the dash of the car replace a $25 dollar part is absolutely ridiculous!
