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.

1996 Ford Windstar Owner Comments

problem #1

Windstar 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission

The Windstar vans have a history of gas tank leaks in hot areas of the country. NHTSA Campaign ID 99V30900. We moved from Colorado to Arkansas (a hot weather area) 2 years ago. Ford says there is no recall on my Windstar bur there are recalls on other models. After talking with a Ford supervisor with this information, and his subsequent inaction, I have filed reports with the NHTSA and the Better Business Bureau. Ford should fix this at their expense because it's a known safety problem in Windstars.
