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.

2003 Ford Windstar Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 312007

Windstar Sport 3.8L V6

  • Automatic transmission

I bought the van in July 2007 and the brakes were spongy. I brought it back to the dealership within days. They said everything was fine. I continued to drive the van for about 9 more months with spongy brakes assuming this was what brakes on a van should feel like. (my first van) Then they really started getting weak. So I brought the van into the dealership. Paid to replace them and then a few months later had to have them re serviced as they were still spongy and now squeaking. To date they are still horrible and now the dealership wants me to put a new spring kit on the back brakes. Again... more money and I don't know whether that will solve anything.
