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.

2006 Ford Ranger Owner Comments

problem #1

I purchased a 2006 Ford Ranger brand new in may of 2006. Soon after at probably 5000 or so miles my windshield wipers would come on for a few seconds and go off without me having turned them on. Then when it would rain hard and I had to use the wipers in high speed mode they would not shut off when I turned them off. Then also sometimes they will not come on at all. The other day it started pouring down rain and they would not come on and I nearly had a wreck. I had to pull over and wait for the rain to stop. I have taken the truck into a dealership and they said they could not find any problems. But the problem is only occasional but is getting worse. My vehicle is now at 47000 miles and out of factory warranty. The problem is still ongoing and getting worse.
