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.

Seat belt never stays connected ( pops out) all speeds. (5 yrs) I asked dealer about fixing he said my warranty expired buy a new one (Ford does not care about safety after warranty date) the airbag light will stay on for a week then off for a month then repeat ( 5 yrs) door ajar light has never turned off (maybe it will burn out so I don't see it anymore) tailgate latch replaced 3 times ( dang that cheap plastic) front end realigned numerous times (anti nascar, always turns right) engine shudders bad few times a year(bad gas maybe once, others probably not) coil pack replaced twice (im still under 60,000 miles) rear window leaks also :)
