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.

2009 Ford Crown Victoria Owner Comments

problem #2

Sep 162015

Crown Victoria

  • 77,400 miles


The vehicle was parked, locked and unattended in a parking lot. Surveillance video shows flashes coming from underneath the hood fairly centrally located where it hinges with the vehicle. The flashes begin slow, then resume more intensely before the vehicle catches fire. The fire consumes all rubber/plastics in the engine compartment and continues to the passenger compartment. The vehicle is a total loss.
