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.

I purchased my Ford Fusion in April 2006. Since then, I have had a number of problems. During the same year of purchase, the rear left tail light and a fuse blew. About a 1 1/2 years later the same rear light blew. In 2009, the driver side door handle broke from the inside of the door panel, the air blower began spontaneously coming on by itself when the air or the heat is not on, I replaced a battery and the car began to hesitate when accelerating. Last but not least in 2010, today actually, I park my car and was unable to remove the key from the ignition. I plan to go to the dealership tomorrow to determine the cause and resolution to this particular issue. I have paid over hundreds of dollars for all these repairs, which occurred right after my warranty was up.

The contact owns a 2006 Ford Fusion. The driver's side door handle became fractured from its housing. Within two months, the rear driver's side and passenger's side door handles also fractured from their housing. The manufacturer stated that there were no recalls and the repairs would be at the liability of the owner. She was also advised by a local service station, upon getting a routine oil change, that every Ford Fusion they repaired exhibited the same failure. No repairs were made. The manufacturer would not offer any assistance. The failure mileage was 52,000 and the current mileage is 84,000. Updated 07/06/10. Updated 07/07/10.
