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.

Explorer Sport Trac 4WD 6-cyl

I purchased a new 2003 Ford Explorer Sport Trac this year and the headlights are made so that you cannot adjust them for side vision. I have had the truck to two different dealers and the technicians say that it is a design fault. Driving this vehicle at night is comparable to having tunnel vision. My truck is equipped with fog lights and they do help with the side vision but they only work on low beam. Even with the fog lights the area to the side of the truck are blacked out. In the months that I have had this vehicle I have only driven about six times at night. I do not know anyone else that owns a similar truck so I haven't been able to find out if everyone has this problem or just me.
