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.

problem #3

  • Automatic transmission
  • 68,351 miles


I thought this was an isolated issue but I guess not. I am having it replaced by the dealer at the same time as the latest recall. The one where the van can leak brake fluid and catch fire. Recall 09S09

Windstar Sport 3.8L

  • Manual transmission
  • 99,419 miles

It happened in the driveway...the rear windshield exploded! Since it was raining, I had to quickly tape plastic to the opening ...nice! I never even thought that this could be a common problem.

(reported on)

Windstar SE 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 120,000 miles

We are thankful there were no children playing around the van. I am wondering if this type of incident has occurred and gone unreported.
