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.

Complete loss of wiper function which causes loss of visibility while driving during rain, snow, or ice and increases the risk of a crash.

Certain 2001 Lincoln Town cars have been recalled for the following failures, among others (1) windshield wiper motor failure, and (2) seat belt failure to latch. I contacted Ford motors but they told me my car was not included in the recall even though I was experiencing the same identical problems these two recalls were issued for. My wiper motor has failed and the front passenger seat belt will not lock.
