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.

I have read many complaints just like mine, Ford told some people they had way too many complaints to do anything about a recall on this. Last year the drivers window popped and the window dropped inside the door I went to Ford bought the cable and regulator and had a window company replace it. 2 weeks ago same thing on the passengers front window, next day the passengers back window dropped while I was in my house, the drivers back window is the only one left. This truck is a 2005 the parts are not that old.

Power windows devices & controls - window regulator failure my wife and I drove my 2005 Ford F150 to pick up my son up from kindergarten and while driving home, going approximately 25 mph during a severe Florida thunder storm we heard a loud pop, then crackle which sounded like it came from the drivers side of the truck. I pulled over in the storm to see if anything struck the door. Since I saw nothing I pulled back onto the road and continued to drive home, then all of a sudden the front drivers side window abruptly flew down into the door and disappeared. My 5 year old son who was sitting directly behind me on the driver's side in his car seat, was terrified, crying and wet from rain flying in the window, we were 5 minutes from home and pulled into the garage. My son and I were soaked and all three of us were shaken. I have recently found out the issue was caused by a window regulator failure. This could have caused an accident and is highly dangerous, especially with a small child in the car. When researching the issue further I found that there are numerous complaints from consumers, however Ford has not responded, nor addressed this extremely hazardous issue. Currently my window is taped with a bag to cover the window hole as we don't have the funds to fix this issue since both wife and I were laid off recently. This issue is not just about the cost it's a safety concern that needs to be reviewed. Is it a faulty part on the manufacturer's side, is it a Ford engineering problem" what does it take for a recall" do individuals need to be hurt or worse die in order for a recall. Shame on Ford for letting an issue like this receive multiple consumer complaints with no action or resolution. This is not normal wear and tear.
