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.

If I cruise 70-75 mph, I add 1-quart every 2-3 tanks. If I cruise 65-70, I add 1-quart every 4 tanks or so. I really like the car & have had very few problems.

Taurus LX V6 DOHC

I have to add about 1/2 to 1 quart of oil every other week. I drive the car no more than 3 times a week if not at all. Car does not knock or anything and i've not seen any oil spots under the car at all.
