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 factory issued wiper blades on the 2004 and 2006 Ford Freestar minivan do not work well. When wiping they leave major streaks across my line of vision. In some cases I have had to narrowly Dodge accidents because I could not see. It doesn't matter if their is little, or a lot of rain or snow. If it is bad weather it is pretty much a guarantee that the wipers will not work. I have tried changing them to different style blades but it does no good. I believe this is a design problem with the Ford wiper. Perhaps the wiper is simply too light and "floats" when driving at freeway speeds. Any speed higher than 35 tends to cause the wipers to smear rather than wipe.
