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.

My 1999 Ford Taurus with the 3.0 Vulcan V-6 that I bought in 2006 is having transmission problems, as I was driving, the car seemed to go into Neutral and not shift, barely making it to a parking lot where I called for a Tow. I've had previous trans problems with rough shifting since I bought the car.,that I have been living with. Now mileage is 149,000 ,trans repair,overhaul estimate as $1500 o$2300, not worth the value of the car , I understand from Reading that this is a common problem with this year Taurus,the AX4S (AXOD-E) Ford transmission .

I had better hopes for the longevity of this car, had the fluid changed once @ 60,0000 miles, maybe not regularly enough.Although the fluid level was being maintained. Mr. Ford, if you are reading this I am accepting offers for this disabled (bull) Taurus.

Maybe your Techs can use it for research to develop a car that never breaks Down... .....hhhuuuurrruumph.....
