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 read article after article about defective Ford paint. The company has been aware of this problem, but has hidden it for many years. I have had estimates of $1200 to repair it. I am disabled and on a fixed income and can not afford that. I live in an area that uses a lot of salt on winter roads and I fully expect to have holes in the roof next summer. This will be the last Ford I ever own!!!

Come on Ford, do the right thing!
