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.

2002 Ford Windstar Owner Comments

My wife was driving our car with my son and his girl friend. luckily they were only going about 30 mph when the spring broke and tore the side wall out of the tire. I brought it to the local Ford dealer and was told that it was not covered under warranty and that there were no recalls for my vehicle. After doing a little research online I found that there had been a recall for previous model Windstars. So Ford knows that there is a problem with the materials they are using to build their vehicles. It looks like I'm the first to add a complaint here, but would like let anyone who has any problem with a vehicle to register a complaint with the manufacturer and the NHTSB. I'm sure Ford is not the only car manufacturer saving money by using inferior quality materials in the production of their vehicles
