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 contact owns a 2006 Ford Freestyle. He open the rear passenger door and it would not close. He had to sit in the rear passenger seat while the vehicle was being driven in order to keep the door from opening. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer who stated that his VIN was not a part of recall 06V383000, latches/locks/linkages:doors:latch. The vehicle was at the dealer when the complaint was filed. The approximate failure and current mileage were 62,000.

We own a 2006 Ford Freestyle that had a safety recall # 06S45 pertaining to door latches sticking. It was performed in 2006. On Feb 10 2010 the door latch failed to work while I was buckling my children into the car. I took the car to the dealership and they said everything looked fine to them. I called Ford Motor Company and they told me that since they performed the recall in 2006 that they were no longer responsible for the safety of my passengers.
