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.

2006 Ford Freestyle Owner Comments

problem #1

Freestyle 6-cyl

Upon lowering the driver side window to get a parking lot ticket, the window would not then go back up. It was no longer working. Other windows were still working fine, but the driver side window could not be closed. I had to leave the car at the amtrak station as I was about to catch a train. Roadside assistance towed the vehicle to the nearest Ford dealer for inspection. The vehicle was less than a month old! upon inspection it was discovered that the driver side window motor had burned out. In addition, service found a chafed/exposed wire in the door next to the junction box. They replaced this also.
