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.

When I locked all my doors, the back window would unlock. I paid to have it fixed the first time and it cost 300$. Of course it broke again, but out of the warranty from when Ford fixed it so I took the cap, on the inside of the trunk door off, and saw where the window locked, and put a metal bolt hook inside to keep it from opening. Its still broken, but when I lock my doors, my back window locks too so no one can steal my stuff.
