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.

Apparently, I'm not the only one out here to have this problem. Go check the 2002 Ford Explorer complaint section where it's the leading complaint by far! This problem has plagued me for at least 2 yrs. The dealer said it's out of warranty and I'm still waiting for the zone person to call .... it's been 6 months and I sure didn't hold my breath. This and other problems have convinced me why they're getting their tails kicked by the Japanese cars. My next vehicle will be a Toyota, Honda or Hyundai. My daughter's Sonata has 85,000mi and still kicking.
