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

Windstar 6-cyl

We own a 2002 Ford Windstar with adjustable height for the brake/accelerator pedals. Unfortunately the adjustment button is on the center console right where my right knee rests. The design allows for adjustments while the vehicle is in motion. On too many occasions my knee has hit the button while in motion causing the vehicle to accelorate or deccelerate unexpectedly. As of now no accidents have resulted, however, one can easily see the safety concern. I contacted Ford and they refuse to disable the feature because that was the original design of the vehicle although in my mind it was a faulty design to have the pedals adjust while in motion.
