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.

2005 Ford Crown Victoria Owner Comments

Paint defect: Bubbling and peeling. Paint applied without applying primer to adhere paint. The 2005 LX model was purchased in 2006. The vehicle stands currently at 71,000 miles. Structure paint begins to bubble and peel off. Vehicle has never been involved in any accidents and neither has it incurred any structural damages. Approximately 6 months ago there was a notice paint missing, the shape was round and dime size on the hood and roof of the vehicle. Further investigation indicated that the paint held no primer underneath it to adhere paint to the structure of the vehicle. When the vehicle was put on a freeway up to posted speeds of 65 mph, the dime size round areas begin to shed more paint. This seems to be a factory blemish that needs to be addressed. I have repainted the hood, and further investigation hints that the entire car has had paint to bare metal applied without the use of primers to secure any paint that may have been applied. I have receipts that indicate findings to be true.
