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.

This part is far to much money to replace for a part that is faulty already and just waiting to happen as the new regulator asy. has the same problem.

Why in the hell did Ford get Metal tm. to make the interior of this car? Every damn thing i touch breaks! Both window cranks, both door handles (interior and exterior), passenger seat, hatch release button, and thats just tha little sh*t thats broke on this car WTF its like they disigned this sh*t to break so we would have to keep buying replacement parts no wonder american car sales sucked so bad, logical ppl dont buy moni pits! I thought i would never say this about my car but Ford can mass produce sh*t better than China. Never buying a Ford anything ever again.

So, my wife was rolling down her window in the winter to open the gate at her work. Now, she's no amazon woman, so it was surprising to hear that the entire handle broke off. Not just the handle, but the pin that goes into the nether regions of the door. Luckily, some guys at her work were able to help her force the window back up to keep the snow out. Since it was winter, we could survive with the window constantly closed, but eventually things started warming up, I had to fix it. Being a cheapskate, I was able to go down to the junkyard, find the part, and replace it myself. But it would have cost a LOT more if I took it to the shop. I couldn't just replace the pin, I had to replace the entire window-operating unit. Just a pain!
