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.

The contact owns a 2006 Ford Five hundred. The contact stated that the vehicle was taken to the dealer for routine service when he was advised that the hood latch was rusted. The mechanic advised that if the rust continued to expand, the latch would fail at any given time and could occur while the vehicle was in motion. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure and the current mileages were 152,000.

The rear passenger door of my 2006 Ford 500 fills with water everytime it rains. I cannot find way to release the water and the door is very heavy now. I am worried the door will be damaged and my baby's car seat is next to it. I actually noticed water in the door quite some time ago, but just realized how bad it has gotten after our latest bad thunderstorms/heavy rains.
