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 wouldn't start so I had it towed to the Ford dealer and they told me it was the alternator, to come and get it. The next day it wouldn't start so l had it towed to the ford dealer, it wasn't the alternator. Next day it wouldn't start so I had it towed to the dealer and they said it was the wireing harness and they cleaned it.

$450. The nexy day it wouldn't start so I had it towed to a none dealer garage and they fixed in 1 day it was the fuel pump, $1000. A couple of days later l went to the dealer service dept and told them l had it fixed and they asked me what was the problem and l wouldn't tell ltold them l wasn't going to train their mechanics.
