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.

I noticed that at about 150k, in the summer of 2009 the sides started to peel. In the hot summer of 2010 they fell completely off.

We just moved to Florida . About a month into the summer heat the vinyl started to peal off the side of the doors . Within several weeks all the vinyl had fallen off . It was terrible how the foam just turned into a sticky dust . Had to clean the panels and sand down the rest in order to glue the new fabric back . Several months later it happened again . I have been looking for a used car and most of the Mercury’s and Ford I have seen have this same problem . Why can't Ford fix this problem , after all it's not that hard for a company this big to replace the vinyl with something else .
