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.

Woke up to shattered glass....sucked big time. And then to find out this is a known problem makes me nuts!

I was driving down on the freeway with my wife and daughter and the glass just shattered. Thank God that neither of them was hurt. I think that Ford should do something about it.
