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.

I love my Mustang, but ...

My window got stuck and would not close all the way. I have fixed many of these in older cars, you just have to pop the window back into the track. I took the door panel off and noticed that the arm that makes the window go up and down was bent, so the window could not be reattached easily. So I took it to Ford dealer (since they were the only ones that would touch it or give me a price to fix it). Ford said it would need a new regulator, which was $80, and they would have it fixed the same day. Next day they call me and say the new regulator arm did not come with the piece that was actually bent, so they have to order the entire assembly that goes inside the door, for another $150.

Next day after that, they call and say a 50-cent plastic piece that connects the window to the track did not come with the part they just ordered. Turns out some genius at Ford designed a window with the track RIVETED to the window with giant rivets, so they can't just reuse the window, they have to order a whole new window just to get the 50-cent part. So now I have to pay for a whole new window, with the plastic part, for another $300. So I'm out $750 and a week later, the window is fixed - Ford electric windows suck! Car Dealers can all bite my shiny metal azz, but still love the car.
