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.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 75,000 miles

I had just bought the van cause it had low mileage in the 75,000s. Problem with Transmission on the way home. Called the guy that sold it to me, after a week he located a guy to fix it for 800 instead of 1100 I was getting quoted from other places. He replaced a single crap piece in it, instead of whole transmission.

Windstar 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 110,000 miles

I shipped the vehicle overseas. It is parked at all times. Since I got it there I spent my whole vacation trying to fix it. The overhead gasket went out on it then the belt. The transmission was also acting. Didn't make anything of it. I shipped the converter box and the whole kit for the transmission. Took it to a shop and redid the whole transmission. After they put it together, we find out that the problem still there. I wasted my vacation trying to fix a POS vehicle that never needed to be manufactured in the first place. I truly believe that the engineer were high when designing FORD in general.

I hate ford and I would like to burn my car and send the pictures to Ford Company to see. I wasted money shipping the car $2,500 and getting it registered $4,500 and insured $500.00 to find out that the vehicle is not working ( A Lemon)

Overdrive was the worst idea anyone came up with. They all seem to go just after 100,000 miles. I bought this van used in June for $2500.00 and now I and looking at spending almost that much again for a transmission!! Ford NEEDS a better idea
