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.

1998 Ford Taurus Owner Comments

problem #1

Taurus SE V6

  • Automatic transmission

When the temperature drops to 30 and below, my car doors will not unlock and I am able to open the door while it is locked. Once, I get inside the car, I can not close the door because it will not shut. I have to drive to my destination holding the door closed or ride public transportation and wait for the temperatures to rise to close the door again. It is really a headache, every winter, it never fails. Once, I had to climb through my trunk to get into the car, because De-Icer did not work for the locks.
