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.

1999 Ford Windstar Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 232008

Windstar 3.8L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 130,488 miles


I was very lucky that this happened when I was driving under 50km/hr. If this had happened on the highway it could have been deadly.... I couldn't steer the van. 1998 Ford Windstars had a recall to fix this exact problem as it was deemed a critical safety issue. The 1999 models don't have this recall, however, and when I contacted Ford about this they told me that the problem had been resolved in this model which begged the question then as to how this happened to me. Very costly to repair and I replaced the spring on the other side just to be safe.
