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.

2002 Ford Windstar Owner Comments

problem #3

Feb 202007

Windstar SE 3.8L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 54,000 miles


Bought vehicle from Ford dealer as used. Less than one month later van dash lights would come on and off periodically. Entire instrument cluster replaced. Over the year some lights would illuminate with no reason such as ABS, traction control, oil, and such with no ability to trace even by trained Ford mechanics. At time, entire instrument clusters would go haywire with speedometer and tachometer going back and forth through full range...haunted!

problem #2

Windstar LX

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles

Dash lights go on and off by themselves. If at low speed, van will stall. If at speeds over 35ish, feels like I'm hitting the brakes.
