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.

Living in humid South Carolina the A/C in a car is God's gift to man. But 97% of the time is the A/C makes the blowing noise but almost nothing comes out. Which makes it a real pain in the ass to be sitting there sweating my ass off because also! The drivers side window is currently broken. I would like to know if this A/C issue is common or if there is anything about it.

Windstar LX V6

When trying to adjust the heat temp it sounds like a door opening and closing. Very loud and my wife freezes in the front not to mention we have to cover my disabled daughters feet setting in the middle of the vehicle because of the cold temps. Was told we needed to have someone remove the temp blend door actuator assembly to inspect temp blend door assembly. This was told to us by a dealership. Did not have problem fixed due to issues with them and not to mention we have already had the transmission, upper and lower front end assembly replaced. Vehicle is a piece of sh*t and would not recommend anyone to purchase.

I have had so many problems w/A/C and heat. The blend door broke( I had that fixed). The A/C works on high setting only. The A/C would not blow cold air, but freon was full. The compressor had to be replaced on back and front unit.
