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.

The outside mirrors vibrate quite badly; it looks like you are looking at two or more vehicles at the same time. The mirrors have been replaced once already, but we have not noticed any improvement with the new mirrors, they vibrate almost as bad as the others and will get just as bad shortly!!!!!!!!! also, we brought the '98 Ranger in for the problem of we had a list of 14 things that were wrong, (one of which was the mirrors). They fixed most of the things that were wrong with the truck, they also changed the mirrors, but, there is no improvement in the new mirrors, they vibrate also!!!!!!!! I will tell the rest of the problems that were wrong with the truck when I do talk to someone on the phone or however it is taken care of.
