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.

This car has had eight incidents in two years of coil packs failing. I have had multiple other problems with this car, ie (brakes, air conditioning electronics...) Ford can't get the coil problems fixed.

I got my car in Jan. Of 2004, since then the dealership has seen it more than I have. The airbag light keeps coming on, window regulators keep going out, windows keep geting off track and making awful noises, windows slam shut, and the brakes are squealing but the dealship can never find the problem and when they do 'fix' these problems, a few weeks later they are broke again. I cant keep taking off work for this and the dealer I bought it from wont help me, and because it is a used car, there are no lemon laws. What can I do? help!!!

When applying the brakes, the vehicle lurched forward. As a result, the vehicle experienced extended stopping distance. No impact was reported. Please provide additional information.

When approaching a stop the brakes do not hold. This is an intermittent problem and no common denominators can be found. The car will slow down when braking, but on occasion the car will continue moving even when brakes are fully applied, causing the vehicle to run stop signs, intersections, and rear ending other vehicles. Also when braking it takes a long distance to do so.
