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.

Continuous problem with heater-A/C blend door failure resulting in lack of defogging of windshield and poor visibility. Especially dangerous at night in changing outside temperature conditions. This failure has been reported to your offices many times in the past 5 years with Lincoln and Ford vehicles. The cost of repair is between $500-$2000 dollars. Ford has apparently made changes to strengthen the blend door lever but refuses to admit design failure nor will warrant the item. NHTSA has yet to take any action on the consumer's part. We are the public and your charter is to provide support to us, not the auto maker.
