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.

2006 Ford Five Hundred Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 292012

Five Hundred 6-cyl

  • 117,000 miles


Upon starting the vehicle this morning (first sub-freezing day here and first time the car had not been garaged), the driver door did not latch. Repeated attempts to secure the door both from inside and outside the vehicle failed. I held the door closed for a 10-minute drive and partially through the trip it partially latched and by the time I arrived at my destination the door latched and locked. This is similar to an existing recall for 2005 Ford Five hundreds (id #06V383000) but in speaking with Ford owner services I am told the recall has not extended to 2006 model year Five hundreds. I believe it is a situation to be investigated as a safety hazard.
