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 #2

Windstar LX 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles


I purchased a brand new 2003 Ford Windstar Van and it have been nothing but a LEMON. I have 90,000 miles on it. Brakes replaced at least four (4) times, the ABS/BRAKES/Check Engine lights won't go off and the dealers cannot find the problem so they say neither can the certified auto repairers. I have spent out over $2,000 dollars on this car just the last two years, not including the years 2005-2011 money that I have spent on repairs. Ford really needs to make it right and recall this vehicle.

problem #1

Windstar SE 3.6L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 99,900 miles

Right front cornering light was stuck on. An electrical maintenance manual I had purchased references the high power distribution box under the hood but I could not get this open. The light itself is encased in the front bumper assembly so I could not simply disconnect the light. Since the Christmas holiday was starting and the service center would be shut down I decided to take it in rather than let my one week old battery get drained. While there they reported other major problems that I am posting separately so as of now there is no resolution or cost to this issue.
