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.

2000 Ford Taurus Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 032014

Taurus SES 3.0L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 99,132 miles


I bought this car is Jan of 2014 after my beloved Jeep was totaled from a guard rail. This car has been nothing but trouble from day 3. It has been ridiculous the amount of time and money my wife and I have had to put into this thing. The first Complaint I had about this car is the coolant system. I haven't been able to figure out why but the whole system seems to always be leaking engine coolant from somewhere. I keep having the thing sealed up but it just leaks from a new place. This car doesn't even have that many miles on it. under 100xxx.

I took it to a very trustworthy mechanic, known for a long time and he is great. I had him do a flush (after I did one myself), he found tons of gunk still in it and that helped the AC unit work better. We replaced hoses and coolant and the tank as well. I am back to square one where the tank is absolutely horrible looking in color and I can't figure out a way to get this thing back in good shape again. I know it is going to take tons of money to get it going again.
