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 back doors would pop open often, now we have to keep the pass, side door in the back locked because if we use it wont stay closed.and now the pass, side door in the front wont unlock. We had it checked at a Ford dealership and they greased thing that also happened was the paint was peeling when we first got it, they repainted the affected area.
