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.

The paint on this lifelong garage kept white explorer is coming off in chunks on the roof and hood causing rust. The paint is not faded or oxidized at all. The paint is in flawless condition yet it's coming off in these places. I am assuming this is a fault on Ford's painting techniques.
