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.

Taurus LX

  • 90,000 miles

It looks awful, i tried to glue it on my own, I can't find a glue strong enough to hold it down the way it is suppose to be, so now i have this crappy gap with dried glue in it, it looks like crap and i wish there was a way for me to fix it on my own. ive heard of people having to order new dash padding from the dealer and I so dont want to do that because the rest of the dash is in great shape. i hate it
