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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: The Freestar was introduced in 2004, but it was essentially just a rebranded Windstar. While there was a redesign of the interior and exterior, the Freestar still inherited some of the design flaws of its predecessor.

The contact owns a 2004 Ford Freestar. While driving approximately 20 mph on wet road conditions, the engine stalled without warning. He was able to coast onto the emergency lane until the vehicle came to a stop. The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic but the technician recommended that the vehicle be inspected by an authorized dealer. The dealer stated that the catalytic converter needed to be replaced and also advised the contact to replace the transmission. There were no repairs made to the transmission and the failure persisted. The current mileage was unknown and the failure mileage was 72,000.
