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.

I don't mind having a Ford that has a recall, I just find it totally unacceptable that when I phone for an appointment May 2, I am told that Ford only accepts 4 recalls a week and the earlier appointment that I can have is early August. I asked if I should be driving my Windstar and Avalon Ford and Ford Canada told me that my windstar maybe unsafe and I should park it until it gets inspected, so what am I supposed to walk all of May, June, July while Avalon Ford and Ford Canada tries to fit me into an appointment. When I complained to Ford Canada they told me they had on control over independent dealerships like Avalon Ford . I just Ford Service Sucks.

Ok, I received a letter about a recall on om van listing my VIN. I called the local dealer to schedule the repairs and was told "There is no recall on your van". Why would FORD send me a letter about MY vana dn then do nothing? Then, yesterday I got a postcard in the mail as a "REMINDER" about my van and the recall. So if CORPORATE says my van was recalled, why doesn't the dealership want to fix my van???
