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 #2

Nov 262010


  • Automatic transmission
  • 230,000 miles


Ford has put out a recall for the axle in the "salt belt" that for some reason does not cover Nebraska where I am from. However Nebraska has the same annual snow fall as many of the "salt belt" state if not more. It is absurd that Nebraska is not on that list . My axle has be being eaten away be the salt on the roads every winter. I cant afford to replace these and pretty much its a death trap waiting to happen witch Ford has admitted. Nebraska should be added to the recall list.

We have a Ford Escape 2008 limited; the Windstar is like new-garage kept, polished, waxed, and not used more than 3000 miles a year for last three years;loaded Sel with more options including power front leather seats-,just a loaded vehicle. But these 2000 Windstar problems keep arising to point that it considered one of ten worse cars over last ten years.
