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.

2000 Ford Windstar Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 152005

Windstar SEL 3.8L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 82,000 miles


We bought our 2000 Ford Windstar in April 2005 and by that fall when we went to change our oil, the computer decided to lock the message cluster on the dash to say only OIL CHANGE REQUIRED. We had a Ford mechanic look into helping to clear the message and he couldn't get it cleared so we have had to disregard that message for 5+ years now even though we faithfully change the oil, the computer complains the oil needs changed yesterday. Pretty sad when even a mechanic can't fix it! I hate that cars are going more computerized with all the trouble we have had with the van! Makes me want to go back to simple horse and buggy transportation! Wooden wheels, anyone?
