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.

The contact owns a 2016 Ford Transit. While driving approximately 15 mph, a burning odor was present inside the cabin of the vehicle. Whenever the vehicle was driven, the burning odor was present and the contact's breathing became difficult. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was kept for approximately one week. The dealer diagnosed that the exhaust pipe was designed not to extend all the way to the rear bumper. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure occurred for the last ten days. The approximate failure mileage was 16.
