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

Jul 012014

Flex 6-cyl

  • 49,050 miles
The vehicle door ajar alarm is saying that the door is still open even though the door is securely shut. This happened first when we were going to be getting out of the car and we thought we didn't get the door shut tightly. However, multiple times over the past 7-10 days the door ajar alarm is going off, even when traveling down the road after it was previously not on and the door is securely shut. This is very distracting as a loud buzzing noise suddenly comes on when you are driving down the highway and causes the driver to become distracted and start looking for the warning light letting you know what is wrong. I have contacted Ford and they have instructed me that this part is not covered but to keep my receipts in the event there is a recall.
