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.

Drove home, garbage pick-up missed our house. Grab the can, and put in back of Ford Sport Trac..tried to catch the garbage truck down a dirt road. When all of a sudden the front hood on my Sport Trac came open.also having problems when turning on air-conditioner.I beleive same type of parts or components used in previous years Ford Explorer Sport...ranging back to 98 or further.probably same types recalled or complained about in those years problems with defects..I have found that my 2001 Ford Sport Trac was actually made in late year of 2000.
