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 6-cyl

I have roughly a 40 minute drive to work. It was a cold day and drove with the heat on and the roads were fine after a snow the night before, but there was no snow left on the vehicle. I came out at the end of the day to find the rear window missing about six-eight square inches and shards of glass below in the snow. The glass appeared to have been hit from the inside, but I think it exploded from within (nothing else had been broken or missing from the inside). I'd had no trouble with the rear defogger or wiper. I found out that a co-worker noticed it at lunch, so sometime between 8:00 am and 1:00 pm this happened. No one saw anything.

The contact owns a 2003 Ford Windstar. The contact stated that the sliding door behind the driver's seat would not open from the passenger compartment of the vehicle. There were no child proof locks; however, the door would only open from outside of the vehicle. In addition, the driver's side window also failed to operate correctly. Once the window was opened, it was unable to be closed. The VIN was verified, but was unable to be entered. The failure mileage was unknown and the current mileage was 103,000. Updated 03/23/09.
