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.

Takata recall when I called the dealership to get a "timeline" as to when this problem would be resolved, I was told "there is no timeline". I said does that mean it could take years" the response was silence! so I need to be sure no one sits in the front passenger seat or risk there death and if they die it is all my fault. The recall was 11 weeks ago..... what exactly is a reasonable amount of time"

Currently there is recall on the passager airbad. I inqured at the dealer for a loaner car untill my car is fixed. Such offer was denied. I was told that there has been only one issue witha Ford mustang. One is too many. Also I was told that the highway safety department gave insturctions that the vehicle can be driven untill the airbag issue is taken care of. I am not sure if this is corrent. In any case, this is wrong, even if there was only one death. I purchased the vehicle from Ford, and I was told that it was a safe car, now 5 years down the road I find out that it is not. Your help with this matter is very much appreciated.

Airbag disabled warning light appeared on dash. Took it to dealer and after 2 days, it was decided that the computer controlling the airbags had to be replaced. For the next 4 years this same light has come on indicating the airbags are not operating. Each time the same dealer has said the problem was "in the wiring harness under the passenger seat". it works for a time and then with no warning fails again. On one occasion it occurred just when leaving on a 2500 mile trip so we were without airbag protection. I am convinced that it has to do with having a passenger in the right rear seat and that feet under the seat interfere with the wiring. The dealer has never resolved it. Multiple times it has resolved itself before I can get in for service so I am brushed off by the dealer. I consider driving this car without working airbags a great life threatening hazard. I was the passenger in a vehicle with airbag deployment once and am convinced my life was saved by them.
