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 rear doors get stuck and wont open. Like they stay locked. They wont unlock with the remote or trying with the manual door lock pull. Ford said something about it being dirt or something causing this dealership tried cleaning the latches but this happens few times and now the doors have been stucked closed for 3 days. What would happen if get accident or something one the kids cannot get out the car.
