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.

I bought this car from a used car lot in Pa. I was told that the car was in great shape. Drove the car for two days, and the transmission quit pulling, then when it started pulling again, it slipped at 30 miles an hour. Put the car in the shop to have it rebuilt, was told that it would only take 3 days. A month, and $1460.00, got it back. Drove it about 23,000 miles started having problems with it not pulling after it sat for about 3 hours. The other 1995 Taurus that I owen is doing the samething.

If this is fords better idea, I'd hate to see one of thier bad ones.

Taurus GL

  • 21,000 miles

I thought I got this as a steal. It was a 95 Taurus with only 16K miles on it driven by a little grandma. Around 21K miles I had to rebuild the tranny which cost almost $1900 and then I had to get the tranny fixed AGAIN about 16 mo. later (which was conveniently just a few months after Cottman's Transmissions' warranty ran out). So I took it back to the same place and they had to fix some other things with the tranny which cost me another $1,000. And yes, they told me too that "Ford's are famous for transmission problems." What a load of crap. Can't Ford take a hint from their consumers and fix their cars?!?

Taurus LX

  • 65,000 miles

Had trans rebuilt at 65000 miles in 2001, AGAIN at 88000 in 2002 and yet AGAIN at 101000 in 2004 - 3 Times!!! And it still doesn't seem to be working right!

Taurus LX

  • 83,000 miles

This is about the last straw for this car. We have dumped a ton of money in it. Now the tranny goes out and our mechanic says Ford Taurus's are famous for that. Next car I buy, I talk to a few mechanics to see what they work on the most so I can avoid it.
