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.

problem #2

Transit Connect

  • 480 miles


The sliding door on the drivers side. I opened it and then it would not close. A little plastic spring / plunger from the "B" post had attached itself to the pin on the door and would not allow the door to close. There was no way to get the door to close other than to manually work and remove this spring from the door pin, however the plastic part of the spring / plunger is still impaled on the door pin. I am taking the vehicle into the dealer for repair - but obviously this is a serious design defect that keeps the door from properly closing and latching.
