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.

Ranger XLT 2.3L

My truck started leaking a couple winters ago in the rain. Sometimes pretty bad, sometimes not at all. I took it to the shop and had to find an autoglass professional. Most times you would think a collision guy for body/window problems, but they all had me go somewhere that did glass. The tech told me that he has fixed about 60 Rangers for this same problem. It is a leak in the sealant/gasket along the top of the rear slider. The part was only $18 and I'm sure you can get it at a dealership, but I'm not good with glass. Labor was 2 hours and the truck is good to go. So total at a shop was about $215.
