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.

2005 Ford Mustang Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 292008


  • miles


The contact was a witness to the failure in a 2005 Ford Mustang. While lifting the front driver and passenger seat side latches, which operate the movement of the seat to the back seat, the latch shattered into several pieces. The owner was unable to access the back seat due to this failure. There was no warning prior to this failure. The vehicle has not been repaired. The contact is the owner of a vehicle of the same year, make, and model; therefore, he was concerned of the safety risk involved. The VIN and failure mileage were unknown.
