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

Failure of one spring came without warning. Dealer stated that failure at 55,000 miles is not normal. A recall had been issued for the same problem in earlier years for Windstars, but none yet for 2000. Repairs cost $850.

We contacted Ford, but they will not cover cost without a recall being issued - maybe we will be the first to register a complaint. We have kept the spings in case we need to show someone. The metal clearly failed through shearing, not rust, etc.
