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 was unaware about the Ford Fiestas having a recall on the transmissions. My car hesitates, jerks and hard to accelerate. It is very dangerous for me when I'm driving on the highway to school and to work and also it has been at Ford service center many times for them to tell me that's just how Ford made the car and just accelerate more

There was an air bag recall on my car for the passenger side. I guess it was changed, but another dealer found out that the air bag was left unplugged for all of this time. Thank god I didn't have a wreck and my husband was with me. Green Ford in North Carolina has serviced this vehicle several times as well as 3 times I have had it in for repair and it is still not repaired. If they put it on the computer like they said they would have caught that the thing was unplugged as did the dealer that has it now.
