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.

The vehicle was a great driving car when bought used. Noticed that it always had a slight hesitation when shifting into Reverse. It continued to get worse and finally while driving down the road the transmission decided it didnt want to shift through gears anymore. Transmission was bought from Ford for $1700 and installed for $300. The first transmission from Ford that was installed, when shifting into reverse the car would hesitate and jump hard into gear. Ford covered the installation and removal for the first transmission thank God. In total it cost about $2000.
