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.

Intermittently locks out the ignition caused by the factory installed anti-theft system. Not ever sure when the car might start. This van is a nightmare.

Water leaks down the hood thru the cowl. Vans PCM had to be replaced. There is a tsb on this. Poor design of hood allows water to leak into cowl and into the PCM. Had PCM replaced at $500 plus. This van is a nightmare.

My husband was driving home from work when all of a sudden no warning, no check engine light nothing, he loses all gears and speed. There was a lot of cars behind him, the road he was on is very busy with several hills and blind spots. We have checked into this problem with Ford and they state that yes they are aware of a design problem with the hood by the wind shield wipers that allows water to go in, drain down the fire wall and leak into the PCM module and the transmission. This water shorts them out and with no warning you lose speed and gears to continue driving. This is a huge safety issue, I just thank god our children were not in the van, and that he was able to get the van off to the side of the road.
