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.

2013 Ford Explorer. Consumer writes in regards to vehicle keypad entry system issues. The consumer stated the keypad is enclosed in a plastic casing and opens maybe one out of three tries, which makes it virtually useless as an entry into the vehicle. The dealer admitted there was a problem, but there was no fix.
