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.

This vehicle is equipped with the same fuel tank which has been recalled for police vehicles only. The consumer believes all Crown Victoria's should be recalled, not just the police fleets.

We are concerned to drive our crown vic because of the alleged fuel tank problems. We live in phoenix, AZ, and in the past three years four police officers have been either killed or severly injured due to collisions that resulted in the fuel tank catching fire. We would like to know what Ford Motor Co. Plans to do about this. Is our crown vic safe to drive" if not, what do we need to do" if we retrofit the gas tank right now, we will void our warrenty. We are in a quandry as to what to do.
