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.

Purchased new Ford F-150 truck from dealership in April 2004. Wavy distortions in the windshield were evident. Reported defective windshield to dealership, which was then replaced in June 2004 (an approximate three week wait was required, because dealer reported that new windshields were not available.) second windshield was also distorted, and dealer in another state said that windshield should be replaced by dealer that had installed second windshield. Third windshield replaced in January 2005, after six weeks of negotiations with Ford. This third windshield also has the wavy defect.

Vehicle was taken to the dealer for inspection, and mechanic replaced the windshield three times. However, the problem recurred. Consumer also had concern with vibration under the vehicle. Dealer found that the vibration is coming from the drivershaft, which was replaced by the dealer.
