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.

I was driving on a horrible rainy day, when the rain became too much and I decided to pull over and pour before I kept driving. When I noticed a rain drop slowly dripping down my windshield. It made sense to me, because well, it was raining, and rain would drip down the windshield. But I looked closer and i noticed it was inside, the rain was coming inside of the truck. It was very minimal, for every 10 minutes it rained hard, maybe 3 drops came in. It's just annoying because of the streak it leaves in the middle of my windshield. Not too long after the rain stopped, I got on top of the car and looked where the rain was coming in and there was absolutely nothing wrong. The seal looked tight, and there were no dents, no rust, absolutely clean. What I'm thinking is there must be an issue with the sealant ford used when manufacturing the car. My only issue is that I am the only one who has complained, maybe I just got lucky. A week after I noticed the windshield issue, the rear window is doing the same. But a little bit worse. maybe 7 drops per 10 minutes of rain. It's not yet doing damage, but it sure is annoying.
