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.

Both interior door handles on the driver's side of the car have broken in the same manner (bottom corner), and the handles won't retract. Doing internet searches, other people have this problem too with Ford Fusion, Mercury Milan, & Lincoln mkzs. See picture at link below. Https:// the driver's door handle won't lock anymore. Ford says this hasn't been recalled. Both handles broke within 2 weeks of ea. Other. The back door is rarely used. The door handles were not aggressively opened - just normally opened. This happened when the car was stationary in a parking lot.

On the inside door handles they are covered in chrome. The passenger side started to bubble up. Not sure why, because I mostly only use the driver side. Anyhow, the other night I had my cousin riding with me and when she grabbed the door handle the piece cut her finger. It had somewhat pealed off and sliced her. No other door handle has done that just that one. I was wondering what I should. Its a safety issue for anyone who grabs the handle. I am not even sure how or where to fix it. Any help would be appreciated!
