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

Windstar SEL 3.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles

Bought my 2003 Windstar in 2007 and soon discovered that the trans shutters when I first put it in reverse and accelerate immediately. I've learned to put it into reverse gear and give it a moment before backing up. 3 years later and it hasn't gotten worse, although I am very careful about "slowing my process down". Recently was told by my mechanic (Ford Dlr) that the trans fluid smells burnt and I have shaving in the oil. Looks like it's gonna cost some big $$.
