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.

Blower motor failed, water leak on passenger carpet. Very common issue that Ford will not address. Service was done to replace blower motor, wiper cowl, cabin filter, and rain hat extension at owner's cost. Parts replaced were same as original so failure is likely to occur again.
