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 #1

I owned a 2000 Ford Windstar. The passenger rear door would, upon closing, slide back open frequently. The dealership constantly said nothing was wrong. Finally, we traded in on a 2002 Ford Windstar. Within 1 week of purchase the passenger sliding door began sliding back open upon closing - and would jerk back once closed. We have had it worked on 3 different times. It closes now, but has a rattle in it when driving and when the weather changes it makes loud noises when opening and closing. Once in a while, upon cold start, the cd player will constantly rotate back and forth - while radio is on or off-until I turn car off and open driver door. When parking, I can open driver door, push lock button, then push unlock button - get out and close door. The security system will flash, indicating activation. Keep in mind, the car is uplocked. If I open a door, the horn will begin blowing. As you can see, we have had out fill of Ford. This is a company car and the entire mangement staff is fed up.
