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 guess I'm not the only one having problems with the paint peeling back to the Primer. I have seen a car the same color as mine while I was walking into UNO's and seen that he had the same paint peeling as me. And only on the Hood. I guess there was no recall on it? That's why I was here looking to see if Ford would repaint the hood at least. Maybe it was my fault going too fast on a windy day? I don't know. But 'Im sure it wasn't Ford's fault. I stopped putting my car in shows because of the hood looking like sh*t. I put a lot of money into the car and the last thing I should put money into is a well taken care of paint job. It was a choice of the New Mustang or Camaro to buy this year and I took the Camaro.. Not just because of the hood. But just because I never ever had a problem with my previous 3 Camaros. And my first Mustang I'm getting Screwed I see.. Looks like its gonna cost me more money just to sell it, I couldn't sell it to someone looking like that... Anyone have a nice after market hood for sale? Maybe Carbon Fiber?
