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.

2002 Ford Mustang Owner Comments

Mustang 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 38,000 miles


The car had under 38000 miles on it but I hadn't driven it since 4:30 pm but at about 5 am woke up to the explosions and the car engulfed in flames. Ford has been unresponsive to this saying there is no defect, but it is similar to the Expedition exploding in flames for no reason there were no modifications to the car or any reason for it to catch fire by itself the car was a total loss and I did not have insuranse to cover it because I am a single mom and was trying to save a few pennies and had no reason to believe that new of a car would go up in flames.
