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.

Windstar SEL 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles


I have the two slider doors on the van, occasionally they won't close. My friend told me to take a pencil eraser to the sensor that's in the door jam, and sure enough it worked.

Windstar LX

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles

I'm just tired of having to open the door from the inside when and not to mention some of my doors won't lock when I lock the doors. My kids have to go to the other side or I have to pull on the lock and then open it. Nothing happened for it to just mess up it just wouldn't work one day.
