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.

2009 Ford Ranger Owner Comments

problem #1

Both doors on my Ford Ranger 2009 froze shut, and I couldn't open them. This happened twice with the first cold weather. I put some silicone spray over the black seal. I owned other vehicles, and never had this problem. We are old, and this vehicle is not a year old. Why does the water freeze so quickly, is this a faulty design? winter weather has just started. Thank you
