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

Sep 112014

Taurus 3.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 160,000 miles


was getting a smell of gas inside car. it would go away then come back.there appeared to be a small leak on the gas tank,but it would dry up and no more smell. so, thought it was maybe from the overflow. took the car to get an oil change and all of a sudden it started to rain gas all over the ground {40.00 worth}. needless to say, i did not get an oil change, but a trip to the dealership in the morning. and the car is sitting at oil can henrys for the night because it is too dangerous to drive. then i find out that ford had a recall on them for leaky gas tank. i really have a feeling that the problem will not be fixed without it costing me an arm and a leg. they will say it is something else. i am so ticked off right now that i want to pull a richard pryor and shoot the darn thing.
