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 #1

Mar 302007

(reported on)

Windstar LE 3.8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 84,000 miles

My biggest annoyance is that all of my problems happend shortly after my extended warranty finished at 75,000 miles/7 year. Actually it was only 73,000 miles when I started having most of my problems. I thought my 1999 windstar was covered. However, they count the start time of the warranty when it leaves the assembly line, almost 9 months before it even was sold brand new???
