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.

never had this problem with any vehicle I have ever had. It is very annoying. I thought ford made a quality product. Is ford aware about this problem. My car is white, the rest of the cars paint is good for a 10 yr old vehicle.I.bought the vehicle used in very good condition, never looked at the roof. now I am very disappointed. did you hear any other complaints about this, and what was their solution? and does ford have any solution? I love the car except for the paint flaw.will ford stand by this. thanks bob
