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.

I purchased brand new car worth $60,000 and from day 1 the first time I put the key it showed an error on the dashboard. I been to service center 5 times, and as of today 04/20/05 the care is with the dealer for the same problem. I been calling Ford motors for the same problem, but have not received any calls from Ford motors. I am paying $905 + insurance for the car which is 6 months old and sitting in the repair shop.
