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.

problem #1

Oct 012009

Windstar LX V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 51,000 miles

This car hesitate/hiccups on acceleration load at mostly between 40 and 65 miles per hour. Sometimes minor hiccups at lower acceleration speed. I have had the vehicle into a repair shop several times and it has not been fixed. This last time in the repair shop they diagnosed the problem as being in need of a "mass air flow regulator". The part cost approximately $120 and the installation was $89. The car now runs the same or even worse than before.
