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.

This has happened multiple times and it is enough to eliminate Ford from future consideration.

  • Automatic transmission

When we run the car, then park it outside, lock the doors and within 1 hour the alarm goes off. It's driving us nuts. Esp. when my hubby works a late 2nd shift. Luckly I have nice neighbors. Have taken it into the shop 3 times they have changed the modual, door and hood connectors. I have to take it back today, after they just got done Fixing it for 2 weeks, because we brought it home yesterday, took it to work and it went off again. My mechanic--at a Ford certified shop---said that he Hates my car. No Clue to what the problem is Yet. Any help would be GREAT. Thanks!
