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.

2004 Ford Crown Victoria Owner Comments

problem #2

Crown Victoria 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 72,000 miles


I am in charge of a police department fleet in warrick county Indiana, we have had three 2004 Ford Crown Victoria's (police interceptors) develop axle problems in the last six months. It seems as if these axles are wearing out prematurely, I have had to replace the axles on cars with 40000, this is unheard of in a police car. The problem seems to start with a noise coming from the rear of the car.
