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

While driving my 2002 Ford Windstar I noticed that there was some vibration coming from the front of the car. Once I pulled into our hotel I notice a rattling coming from the left front hub cap. When I pulled the hubcap off three of the lug nut suds were sheared off. Ford fixed the problem but could not tell me why this happened. Thier theory is that the tire was not properly put back on. The only time the tire was off was in July of 2002. My feeling is that if the wheel was not put on properly it would not take a year to notice. I may be wrong but I want to bring this to your attention in case there any other instances of this happening. Thank you.
