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.

Well I have read about this before, but there is nothing you can do to prevent it. Had a taller passenger, passenger leaned the seat back, rear window POPS OUT, THANK GOD IT DIDN'T BREAK!!!! WTF FORD? Of all of the stupid design flaws, how can you mess something SO simple up? First the inertia switch involving the passenger, now the rear window pops out(regular cab).

I am losing my love for ya Ford, maybe I can convince some ford dealer to fix it, this is 100% factory FLAW, FCK UP, MISTAKE, please take responsiblity ford, for both the inertia switch location, and the rear window popping out from seat adjustment. I have noticed they made the mirrors bigger, which would probably be my third complaint, just plain dangerous side mirrors (I recommend adding the little bubble mirrors to increase viewing angle)
