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.

'99 windstar, we bought it used in 2003, tranny went out within 6 mo. (while on vacation).

The mechanic said it had been pulled out previously also. then in Sept. 2010 we had to do it again.

Multiple electrical issues, several recalls. Now being bought back by Ford due to rear axle issue and front suspension problems.

DO NOT BUY A FORD MINIVAN.
