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.

Got a 2003 Ford Windstar. Battery is full of juice but all it does is click when going to start it. I drove home next morning, dead. Charged battery for 2 hours. It started, ran. Made a couple stops and started fine. Next morning it won't, all it does is click. Battery full of juice.

i bought this 2003 Ford Windstar from hackensack, i test drove it and everything was okay.just that the reverse gear is a little hard before it goes in,but it was really minor.the car was shipped to Nigeria,and when we wanted to start it for the first time it will just make a click sound and thats it .the mechanic said i should change the kick starter,which i did, but still it could not start.and on the process of bringing out the kick starter,it was found that something is bad there because there was no oil in the gear box.also there was no oil in the engine.what do i do
