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 Sport 3.8L V6

Right front sub-frame corroded where the control arm is connected to support the wheel assembly. The arm separated causing the axle to pull out of the transmission, then loss of steering. Was travelling slow so no major accident. Could have been serious on a freeway at high speed.

Ford does not have a recall on this yet. NHTSA is aware or this. Need more complaints or injury to get action.

Ford does have a recall on the rear axle for the exact same corrosion problem in "salt-states" and Canada.
