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.

Rear panel under window has recently cracked, there are now 2 vertical cracks running down the back of the vehicle. Also, hitch to rear door doesn't stay up. This vehicle has also had a new engine put it and injectors have popped out on more than one occasion. This is the most expensive vehicle I have ever purchased and it has given me more problems than I could ever expect in a vehicle. Ford needs to compensate for this vehicle. We have owned several Ford's and have never seen anything like this. It is a true lemon>>>>
