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.

Several problems. First, the driver's power seat malfunctions. Moves while car is in motion; doesn't move when key is inserted into ignition. Was repaired about 15 months ago; same problem exists again. Secondly, rear window pops open if car is unlocked. Will only remain closed when vehicle is locked. Thirdly, rear wiper has quit working. Really strange since it is rarely used in 3 years of ownership.

It is very difficult to see at night in a Ford with a heated windshield. The lines in the windshield create glare and haze when the headlights of oncoming cars hit the windshield.
