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 Windstar/Van V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 66,368 miles


Two days after buying this Windstar it wouldn't start!! 68,000 miles on it and the alternator lasted from the Ford dealership, I just bought it from, to my house 10 miles down the road. Got up the next morning and the thing wouldn't start. Preaus Ford dealership had to replace it. This is only one of the things I put $ out from the "good deal" van.

The old lady who had it hardly drove it. All 4 tires were dry rotted, replaced Ford's battery, transmission, ignition coil. It cost another $2,500 tacked on to buying price. Not a good deal. BUYERS OF "GOOD DEALS" BEWARE. DON'T BE FOOLED BY A FORD, NO MATTER HOW GOOD IT seems to drive or look all spruced up. THE HIDDEN INSIDE can be a KILLER! SO FAR - NO RECALLS ON THE TRANSMISSION.
