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.

Windstar LX V6

Is this typical. I was having it towed to a shop and the AAA guy had me crank the engine while he hit the gas tank 2x with a rubber mallet and the car started up. He said it was typical of these types of cars. Well we turned it off and started it up again and it started, but the next day I wanted to drive it . I thought it was o.k. but it didn't start. So I'm gonna have to put it in the shop and let them rape me for all the money they can get.

What is the problem?

The worst car you can ever buy. Not worth your money. The car would not restart at the gas station, on my way to pick up my daughter from school, On my way back from a family gathering in the middle of the night with small children. All of this after Ford said they fixed the problem. Now after almost two months in their garage, Ford is still unable to fix the car but keeps asking for more money. I still have to make car payments, pay for a rent a car and pay for repairs.
