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.

Trunk lid doesn't always close all the way like it should, regardless of how hard I slam it down. If it's not closed all the way, the car will beep until I get out and slam it shut. I mentioned this to the dealership, they said it was because it was a new car, the trunklid moulding was new and just needed to be broken in. Well a year later and it's still doing it. This occurs only several times a month, but it is still annoying. I've read about other Cougar owners having the same problem. The Mercury dealership in my town is awful, I'll have the Ford dealer fix it.
