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.

problem #1

May 112008

Taurus SE 3.3L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 170,000 miles

I was riding with my kids and the transmission went into neutral and stopped on a major highway with traffic all around us. No one could ever tell me what was actually wrong with it all they would say is it would cost between $1,000 & $2,400 to rebuild the transmission. There wasn't any signs that the transmission had anything wrong with it until it stopped in the road.
