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 #2

Sep 012009

Windstar Limited 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 95,000 miles


There is a vibration in the front end that can't seem to be corrected. Seen two dealers, two tire companies. Finally in desperation replaced the tires with "the best money could buy." Had alignment checked, made sure tires were balanced, had it checked all over. At first, all mechanics were denying that they could feel anything. Now that the problem is worse and does it every time you are turning (going over about 25 mph) the problem is acknowledged by mechanics however everyone tells me they don't know how to fix it! I am so frustrated!!!!!!!
