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.

1998 Ford Crown Victoria Owner Comments

My 1998 Ford Crown Victoria caught on fire in my driveway after sitting for 12 hours. The fire dept said it started in the electrical wiring under the hood. The car is now completely destroyed. There is a recall for the 98 Crown Victoria for this exact problem, but I am being told that my VIN does not have a recall on it. Ford Motor Company will not take any responsibility for this. I know that they are adding to the recall everyday. Am I supposed to wait until my car has been added, if it ever gets added?
