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. Notes: It's the end of the road for the Crown Victoria as Ford announced it is discontinuing the iconic model at the end of the 2011 model year. While sales were still doing well, Ford realized it would have to spend hundreds of millions of dollars to update the decades-old Panther platform.

With the Crown Vic gone, Ford no longer has a v8 sedan for sale in the US for the first time in nearly 80 years.

2011 Ford Crown Victoria Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 062013

Crown Victoria 8-cyl

  • 116,034 miles


I live in the state of Florida, and in May 2013, I purchased a former Wisconsin police vehicle, 2011 Crown Victoria from van horn motors of milwaukee in Wisconsin. Approximately one month later, after discovering rust particles on my garage floor, I noticed the entire undercarriage, including but not limited to the intermediate steering shaft, mufflers and brake lines are completely covered in rust. This problem was brought to the attention of the dealership via emails with numerous photos attached. No reply was ever received, nor was this problem made aware to me either by landline, email or any other form of communication. In July and part of August 2013, I took it upon myself to physically wash, wire brush, sand, pressure wash, prime and paint the entire undercarriage. Since I had to this while lying underneath the vehicle the whole process took me five days to complete and approximately $250 in equipment usage, purchases and labor. Before and after photos are available effective immediately. I really would like to know, either from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the center for auto safety and/or Ford motors, how I can please be reimbursed?
