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

May 302004

Windstar 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,000 miles


Tire pressure monitoring systems fails. After set, lights up although the tire pressure is properly set. Advance trac system - automatically engages in conditions that do not require it (e.g. driving on the interstate). The vehicle immediately slows with a griding noise. Both incidents have been reported to the dealer who has said that these are sporadic problems that have occured and that they have not been able to replicate, therefore, they can do nothing. However, after reviewing your site, I see that I am not the only person experiencing the same problems.
