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.

Keeps having check engine light come on, also keeps having aibag deactivated signal come on instrument panel. Also, keeps having issues where windows won't go up or down even when pushing any of buttons. Keeps having problems with wipers not wanting to work too. (all these things are not consistently on or happening. They happen daily at any given time) 2nd row captain seat the push button won't work on folding the seat. Navigation system keeps having issues of not wanting to properly work or says no navigation card when there is one there. Also, radio has not wanted to work; the whole system ent, nav, phone, climate wouldn't work. There has been few times smell something burning coming through vents. Have tried doing the owner report with Ford like owners suppose to be able to do. Have not been able to ever get a reading, or a diagnosis. Have had it to dealership 3 times still issues. All these issues happen no matter what temperature is outside, no matter whether driving or sitting still. To try get things working right have pulled over to turn off vehicle and back on several times to try get things working properly. It isn't safe to drive in South Georgia or in Florida in down pour of rain when don't have working wipers!!! it isn't reassuring about deactivated airgbag signal on the instrument panel. Definetly aggregating considering we just purchased this 6 months ago! (we have 13 different video footage to all this for proof that we 've shown dealership, and service department; videos to big for here)

Air bag light came on the next day after I purchased a new vehicle. This is a safety issue since the air bag will not deploy when the air bag light is on.
