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.

It's seems Ford thought it was a good idea to hide the windshield washer fluid reservoir, so that it is impossible to see how much fluid is left, and there is no indicator light to tell you either.

For anyone living in Quebec....imagine this!!! Driving on the Metropolitan behind a truck and running out of fluid!!! This happened to my 10 year old daughter and I 3 times last winter. I swear I saw I lives flash before our eyes.

The thing sprays out so much liquid that I used 7 bottles of fluid last winter and am already up 5 this year. (Was only using 2-3 with my previous automobiles)
