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.

Was about 300 miles from home with family. Stopped at a light and when it was time to go, van felt like transmission was slipping. ATF appeared to have broke down do to dark color and burnt smell. Changed fluid but I am afraid it might be too late. Still hesitating when accelerating. Every Ford I have owned I have had to replace the transmission. I guess this one is no different.
