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 am lucky to be alive after the front tire and wheel flew off the car at 60mph. All 5 wheel studs catastrophically snapped off with no warning. Some internet research shows that this has occurred to other high mileage Windstars with alloy wheels. Be forewarned.
