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.

I have owned 3 T-Birds over my short lifetime, killed one, wrecked the other and I love them. But damn do they ever love to burn up alternators. I've replaced at least 5 of them over the 3 cars and about 300,000 miles, but if you know what to do they are a cake walk to replace 3 bolts, 3 wires, 30 mins you're done. Just remember buy a replacement with a lifetime warranty.
