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.

2004 Ford Mustang Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 172005

Mustang 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 18,571 miles


Was driving on open freeway at approximately 7:30pm on 10/17/05 when driver heard loud "pop". shortly afterward, drivers vision was obscured through back window on the Ford Mustang convertible. When driver arrived home he noticed that the rear window was completely shattered and there was no evidence of any object striking the vehicle. Driver took vehicle to Ford dealership for repairs and was told that Ford did not consider it a defective part. When driver notified his insurance carrier, he was informed that their glass installer was aware of the spontaneous rear window explosions occurring in the 2002-2004 model year of Mustangs. Driver is having dealer replace the defective equipment and replaced parts will not be available.
