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 own a 2014 Ford Mustang and the paint on the aluminum hood has failed in several locations. There was no damage to the affected area and the dealership has advised me that this is a very common problem on the Mustangs. Despite this known defect, Ford has refused to address any repair.

The contact owns a 2014 Ford Mustang. After every rain, the contact noticed that the dashboard was leaking water that traveled to the passenger side floorboard. The water created mold. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where the cause of the failure was undetermined. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 15,500. The VIN was not provided.

Paint is bubbling on front lip of hood. There is also a small spot on the roof but unknown if it is related to the problem. Hood is made of aluminum and Ford apparently knows of the problem since they issued a tsb in 2004 on this very subject. They won't cover the fix because of mileage but this has nothing to do with mileage. This was caused by iron contamination at the factory before the car was painted.

The car was making a dry pass by at a drag strip (non racing) while driving the car ignition cut off, causing a loss of control. Car hit rear quarter panel and then hit the front tire and suspension ripping the front bumper off. Driver was injured but not bad. Had car towed to a Ford dealer, where we were told we would have to pay $4,000 to have a Ford represenative look at, to determine cause for the car to shut off and air bags not deploy.
