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 #2

Mountaineer V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 59,000 miles


Dealership advised I had to purchase an entire door panel for $400.00 to get the small plastic trim piece that had fell off. Are they kidding me! Can not re-install as no tabs to insert into the matching small ports. taped it on with duck tape. Real nice...right!
