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.

Two months later, he noticed water leaking through the windshield. A professional technician stated that the hooks holding the windshield together were defective. The vehicle has not been repaired. The dealer stated that there were no recalls regarding this failure. The failure mileage was 55,000 and current mileage was 63,000.

There were 2 cracks on the base of the windshield. It appeared that the cracks originated from the base of the molding. It was later determined that a small peddle caused the windshield to crack.

2nd attempt to fix noise coming from windshield, cowl was replaced, but problem still persists. Sounds like windows are open inside when air is off, all windows are shut. Speeds reach 55 and over, loud squeek coming from lower windshield area. When I spoke to mechanic he mentioned that this was other Ford vans with same problem, but no recall has been issued, why? it doesn't seem safe in this vehicle knowing that there is air coming in under the windshield. We are going in for our 3rd attempt and we are concerned about our manuf. Warranty running out before this matter is corrected. Please help!
