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.

Matching NHTSA recall id: 01V258000 snow on windshield, attempted to use wipers but immediately shut them off since they did not move. Windshield wiper motor caught fire and produced a large amount of smoke which filled the cab and also came out from under the hood. Vehicle was shut off and fire and smoke cleared on its own. Snow was removed by hand from windshield. Vehicle was placed back in the on position (but not started) and the windshield wipers would not turn off even in the off position. Fuse was pulled to turn them off. Windshield wiper motor was replaced but was not covered by a recall per the dealership. My vehicle is from the Kansas City plant - windshield wiper motor part number: F6du-17B571-ab dated: 06/12/0000:11:12N12V.

The contact owns a 2001 Ford F150 super cab. During a tropical storm, rain entered the vehicle through the windshield. The vehicle was taken to the dealer and a new windshield was installed because the old one had a defective seal. The repair would cost $1,300. The current and failure mileages were 69,000.
