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.

Rear passenger door can't open from inside or outside of vehicle. Difficulty in removing any type of passenger in an emergency. Nothing is listed in operations manual. Child safety lock was pressed at time so child could not open door. Since then tried to unlock child safety from inside and outside and it is impossible. There is no way to do this. Involves child safety lock which is broken inside of door. Tried to get fixed recently, but seems impossible without damaging door. Still cannot open. Have heard others who have had this problem. Have not seen or heard any recalls on this issue but it should be a Ford issue not the consumer. This is too dangerous for anyone driving in that seat should an emergency occur and they need to get out.
