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

Jul 072008

Windstar SXL V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles


I hit a deer in the fall in the front end on passenger side and the air bag never deployed.

I know the deer hit the bumper since we had hair on it.

The second time was my husband was going through an intersection and someone ran a red light and he t-boned the car (a VW jetta) that ran the light and the hole front of the van was torn apart and is going to be considered totaled. The air bags never deployed.

luckily my husband braced himself enough and had his seat belt on that he doesn't believe he hit the steering wheel or windshield. The front bumper actually was dangling in front of the van. I cannot believe the air bags never deployed. Every thing on the front end of the van was pushed about 2 feet back into the engine. God was watching over him.
