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

May 072015

Windstar LES 3.8L Lt

  • Automatic transmission
  • 136,000 miles


Besides the numerous other problems this van has such as: the door locks, windows, and side doors operating when ever they damn well want to (together, individually, or not at all), and the numerous warning lights coming on or going off periodically; last night at about 8:30 pm, in 65 degree weather with a light rain, for no reason whatsoever the rear quarter window on the driver's side exploded! If I would have had my kids in the car, this could have caused them a serious injury. I have seen several complaints about this issue, when is there going to be a safety recall on this? I have only had this van two months and it is not looking good!
