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.

Both headlight lens assemblies have become cloudy/hazy, so the light emitted is greatly reduced, creating an unsafe driving condition. Replacement cost is $400 plus labor. I feel Ford should cover this, as the assemblies are obviously defective, and this is a safety issue.
