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.

I was riding down the street with my husband on the passenger side. My grandaughter and her friend in the rear of my 2004 Ford Freestar. All of a sudden I we heard a loud noise, we thought could have been a gun shot. All of a sudden the glas in back of the van exploded. It scared us so bad. I drove about a half block before I pulled over in case it was somone shooting. I call the police. After arriving they looked for bullets or anything that could have been thrown to knock out the window. After nothing was found, they were puzzled at what could have happened. Does anyone have the web sight so I can complain to Ford about this problem. Be careful with the Fords. My kids could have gotten hurt sitting in the back of the van.
