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 have had repeated problems with my cd player (shakker 500) I have had six stereos in the car and all six have done the same thing. They will make horrible noises, say bad disk or disk error or nothing at all before it starts spitting out the cd's. if I do not grab the first cd, it will spit out all six. I have had an independent inspection of the car to determine the problem because I do not feel it is the stereo. The inspection states that the voltage is dropping in the car which sends the stereo into an erratic state. Ford Motor Company says that they cannot duplicate the problem so their solution is to keep putting stereo's in the car. I just had a "brand new" stereo installed on April 26, 2006. This was to be Ford's final attempt to fix the problem. The stereo went crazy again twice on Friday April 28, 2006. I have repeatedly complained about this being a safety issue because I can't keep taking my attention from my driving to catch cd's. I want a resolution and I am not getting it with Ford. I want to know how to go about getting a recall issued on this car stereo/ car/ voltage problem. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.
