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.

Sidewall split on Bridgestone insignia SE 200, size 215X70R15, dot # wbm3 E20 0210. Mileage on tire 39K, still good tread depth. I still have tire if any Agency would like to inspect. Didn't take it back to Bridgestone B/C from what I have read, they would do nothing about it.

Windstar

  • 103,000 miles
The contact owns a 2003 Ford Windstar. The contact was driving approximately 50 mph in rainy weather conditions when the contact drove over a high water spot and the vehicle hydroplaned. The contact was unable to control the vehicle and the vehicle swerved off the highway and caused damage to the rear passenger tire and wheel. The vehicle was taken to the local repair shop for the failure where the contact was advised that the rear axle was cracked due to corrosion and contributed the tire and wheel failure. The contact referenced NHTSA campaign id number: 10V385000 (suspension:rear: Axle:non-powered axle assembly) and called the manufacturer but was advised that the vehicle was not included in the recall. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure and current mileage was 103,000.

2003 Ford Windstar. Consumer writes in regards to the performance of the Ford Motor Company and two safety recalls the consumer stated the inspections and repairs were not conducted in a timely, efficient, and responsible manner. The consumer stated when he finally received an appointment for the axle inspection, it was determined the axle was cracked in three places. The dealer did not have the replacement parts and the vehicle was deemed unsafe to drive, and therefore, it was left at the dealer for over a month. The consumer stated he then received another recall relating to the subframe. The consumer contacted the dealer regarding the second recall and was informed they were aware of it and he would be contacted when the repairs for the second recall had been completed. The consumer received a voice mail from the dealer stating the parts for the axle had arrived. However, it was discovered the engine had an oil leak, the sway bar link was broken in the front, the right front tire was badly worn on the inside and the left rear shock was completely blown out.
