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.

I received a recall letter instructing me to go to the nearest dealer to test the belt with a special tool. I complied and was told the belts passed. The belt continues to release while driving. I have contacted 2 dealers and Ford (directly) twice. I spoke with tem today and they say they have no record of my calls or E-mails. I have documented those calls. Please help, the saftey of my family is a stake. RQ04011.
