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.

Driver side door mirror appears to be fading in color, possibly losing polarization, seems like that part of the mirror is defective, it gets extremely hot, turning brown and can be a driving hazard if the issue is not corrected.

problem #1

Taurus 6-cyl

  • 10,000 miles
My wife and I were traveling on us 35 North out of dallas, when we heard a loud bang as if something hit the windshield. We both looked up, but there was no mark on the windshield. Looked in the rear view mirror and saw that the rear window was shattered. Stopped at a Ford dealer in dallas and he said it had to be hit by a rock or bullet, but could not find either. Contacted my insurance, who contacted safelite to replace the window, but they did not have a replacement in dallas, which I understand is one of their distribution centers, dealer secured window with crash wrap for me and I drove on to albuq, where safelite replaced my window. They also could not find where it had been hit by a rock or bullet. Drove back to houston and contacted the selling dealer, and also Ford's customer relationship center. As of this date, 11/24/2012, they either don't have an answer or haven't returned my calls. On the 2nd call to Ford, the gentleman did tell me the regional representative of Ford said it was not covered, but no one has bothered to contact me.
