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.

While driving my Ford Mustang after a rain storm I heard a very loud water swishing noise and pulled off the road immediately. I quickly ascertained that the noise was coming from the driver's door. I was extremely shocked and concerned and hurried to the dealership. The door was taken apart in the service area and a large quantity of water poured out. I was told that this problem was not covered under the warranty and there was nothing they could do! when the door was apart I could clearly see that there were numerous wires and connectors that could clearly be in jeopardy from splashing water and the door interior was very wet. I nervously drove the car home and covered it and haven't driven it since because we have experienced a lot of rain. I am a disabled veteran with medical issues need to drive my car but I am afraid to.
