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.

problem #2

Windstar SEL V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 120,000 miles


Rear tilt out windows: During the period when the vehicle was under warranty I had the rear tilt out widow motors replaced several times. Now one or the other window either opens and doesn't shut or shuts but will not open. I can loosen the screw through the window and the motor will operate once or twice but then it will "stick" again and either stay open or closed. Clearly the design of these window motors is extremely poor, and they are expensive to replace. I am not happy about this because these rear windows are the only natural ventilation for the rear portion of the vehicle. They have never worked reliably for any reasonable length of time since I purchased the vehicle.

This problem gets very annoying. Can't go through a Drive thru, Can't use the toll booth. Will work some of the time in very cold weather but not at all in warm weather.
