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.

It was annoying when we first noticed it, but now it's worse and just pissing us off!!!! The electrical is all jacked up! About the only thing that still works properly is the windows. Everything else is hit and miss, and I do mean EVERYTHING! Got to a point where the ac/heater and radio would turn itself on and off when the vehicle was not it use (not just while in use), leaving us with a dead battery when we needed head to work! Today after taking the keys out of the ignition, it continued to try starting itself until I disconnected the battery. All the research I've done trying to fix it shows me it is an ongoing problem for thousands of navigator owners, who have spent thousands of dollars on a temporary fix. Simple solution - don't buy one! I'll be unloading mine as soon as possible!!

The electricall in the car is so bad that the sterio has to be lowered from the stearing wheel if you try to lower it from the sterio the volume goes up higher its crazy. the seats well I have to play with the buttons until i get it to were i want it to be.Oh an the sunroof you have no way of knowing when it is closed unless your on the freeway and you could hear the air comming in you i also have to play with it until it closses right know it has been open for over a month and does not want to close.I bought this car thinking it was my dream car and it hasent been like that. I also bought it becuse I am haddicap and the car is roomy inside for my chair and my kids of course I have had it for 4 years and have no insurance on it. I took it in a mont after I bought it at Thourobred and of course it was my falt becuse the roof was a little open, It rained and the rain started pouring in from the roof vents it was a night mare. This is the only ar I have and have no way of getting it fixed. i really love the way it drives but nobody will take action on this matter this is the last time my family and myself buy a ford navigator.

MY DREAM CAR SUCKS AND NOBODY WILL TAKE THIS MATTER TO HELP ON THESE DEFECTS NOT THE CAR LOT WERE I BOUGHT IT OR THE FORD COMPANY WERE THEY MADE IT ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS ARE NOT WEAR AND TEAR
