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 3.8L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 51,000 miles

I had numerous problems with the steering in my van shaking and vibrating until I finally got rid of the factory tires (replaced under warranty twice). All was great for about 15,000 miles and then the ven started making a loud rumbling noise between 40-70 mph. Sounds just like the tires rumbling but I think the problem may lie elsewhere. I put on a set of older all season snow tires I had on before, that did not make noise and now they do. Ford dealer says my tires are dry rotted. I don't see it. Nor do I see how dry rot is going to make that much noise. It is so loud that it's hard to talk to the person next to you while on the highway.

I have not not had any major problems with the van. I put high mileage on it, but regularly change the oil, rotate tires, etc. This just started with new tires and alignment yet they say there is nothing wrong with the tires or alignment.

Windstar SEL

Had front end aligment, new tires, sway bars, new brakes and fuel injectors cleaned. This did not correct problem. The car front end rumbles between 40-70 mph whether on cruise or not. Cannot determine the problem.
