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.

On national tv there was a recall for Ford Expedition regarding water leaking from the windshield with the interior being soaked on a rainy day. I own a Mercury Mountaineer 2002, and am experiencing the exact same problem for about 5 months, and until recently it has worsened. When I called Ford on 6/22/05, they explained that my vehicle id was not part of the recall. I would greatly appreciate having this investigated since it seemed to be quite dangerous for a windshield to be leaking water. When I touch the glass windshield I can actually move it. What if I hit a pot hole...could the glass shatter and break from lack of stability. I drive daily with my three children, and am very concerned about having the manufacturer fix this problem. Should I have a new windshield put in" will this fix the problem or just temporarily stop the water from leaking inside" I would appreciate any direction in this matter.
