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 #1

This vehicle has died while driving at various speeds, at different times of trips (long and short/hot engine normally). While driving at 55 mph it died one time, causing us to enter the oncoming traffic lanes around a curve. This is not good for a family vehicle when there is an entire family in the vehicle. We have notified the dealer and have taken in for service, but it continues to die. We had the same problem with our 1998 Windstar that was totalled in a collision (not problem related). I do not know if it is the ignition system or the fuel system. This vehicle has multiple recalls to date.
