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.

problem #1

Mountaineer 5.0L V8

the door handle is loose and the door wont lock sometimes, most of the time, i heard this is a major problem on mountaineer's. ford needs to tighten up. they need to keep up with CHEVY. this problem is a big mess. but have alarm, so if door isnt locked and alarm is armed , alarm will sound.. makes me feel somewhat better. i just bought the car and now all these problems are happening. a/c doesn't blow cold, rear speaker is blown, handle and door lock sit. but overall im satisfied with my new truck. rides good and handles well.
