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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: How can we give the 2001 model year a "seal of pretty good" when it has some problems with a slipping transmission and a known problem with the speed activation control switch? Because it's not the 2002. That's how.

I REPLACED THE SHOCKS TWICE, TIRES TWICE NOT REALIZING THERE WAS SUCH A THING AS BODY BUSHINGS/ JUST FOUND OUT YESTERDAY , WAITING TO SEE HOW MUCH THIS WILL COST. FORD USES THE LOWEST QUALITY MATERIALS IN THEIR VEHICLES, I AM SURPRISED AND VERY DISAPPOINTED. SINCERELY, F.C.FERRELL .THE OLD BUSHINGS LITERALLY CRUMBLED UP LIKE DIED UP EARTH.
