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.

problem #1

Was sitting idle in a parking lot when suddenly I heard a loud pop. When I started to roll my window down on my 2005 Ford F150 super cab, the window dropped down and sounded like broken glass. After removing the panel I saw the cable messed up. Then after googling to find an answer, I discovered that this is the exact problem that dozens, perhaps hundreds of others are experiencing with the power window regulator. The plastic clip breaks and the cable gets messed up. Ford is making a killing off owners by using cheap, breakable parts. This should be recalled! I have no money to replace this regulator right now, so I am at the mercy of the gods in hope that someone doesn't steal my truck, or it doesn't rain, since with this part broken the window will not stay up. Please push this through for a recall!
