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.

Contour V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 45,000 miles

Light came on day after I purchased the car from dealer. The car belonged to the dealers mother so I am sure they knew it had been on. Took it back and they reset the computer and said it was fixed but came back on before I got home. They di this twice before telling me it was a O2 sensor and said it cost $800.00 to repiar. I took t to another mechanic and he made the repair and reset the computer for under $200 but it is still on after 90,000 miles.
