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.

Okay I swear the thing was possessed hit a bump and all the inside lights come on and then you hit another bump and thy might go off Ford Windstars are the worse van I have ever driven or owned and Ford is a bad company for not doing more recalls on all these problems that I have read that all people have will never buy a ford again

problem #2

Jul 122008

Windstar SE V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 113,711 miles

While driving the interior lights flickr on and off repeatedly and rapidly. As well the speakers in the back tend to cut in and out. When I asked the dealership about this they told me it was a common Windstar problem and the that the switch needed to be replaced at a cost of at least $350 for the part and and another $120 for the labor. Just thought this was something worth mentioning.
