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 #2

The passenger side of my car on the floor is soaked with water drainage due to a defective sunroof. I have taken the car back to the dealer 3 times, and 3 times they have told me the problem has been corrected. The last time I took the car to the dealer for this problem was 1/7/02. Today is 1/25/02 and the passenger side is soaked again. I have to wait until Monday to take the car back because the "water doctor" only comes on mondays. I am not a mechanic but I know there is something wrong. Please help, I don't want my warranty to run out before they fix it. Help.

I have tried to have this problem fixed but community Ford says that it does not cause a problem. Unless it is hitting something or scraping something. No safety defect.
