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 van didn't come with hubcaps when I bought it used. So I bought four new ones and immediately realized why they were taken off. THEY RATTLE LIKE CRAZY. There is nothing you can do about it, apart from taking them off. They are Ford hubcaps not some cheap knockoff yet when driving at any speed they fit so loose you can not get them to stop. Cheap plastic on Metal kind of rattling. But I can't take the fronts off as then I'd need to take the backs off and that's a waste of $50. And nobody in their sane mind would buy them!
