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 #1

Dec 172002

Windstar 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

The windshield wipers extended beyond the vehicle's windshield. The consumer feels that this is a safety hazard. The blades are not stationary and need to be tightened regularly. The manufacturer and the dealer are aware of the problem. During a winter storm, the wipers worked fine then all of a sudden the wiper arm and blades started moving to the left of the windshield completely off the windshield on the driver's side of the vehicle. This distorted the consumer's wife's vision.
