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.

2001 Ford Taurus Owner Comments

problem #1

Taurus SE

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,800 miles


This vehicle only has 50,800 miles. I just had to spend 1,000 dollars on new ball joints as well as a new ball joint knuckle. Now Ford is stating that I will have to spend another 1,100 dollars to fix the AC Condenser and the High Side Line to get the AC fixed. Then if the compressor is bad that will be another 800 dollars. I called the Ford Customer Help Line and they said that no help and didn't even sound to concerned that their vehicles breakdown and cost consumers thousands of dollars after only 50,000 miles. They should be ashamed of themselves. That's why, if you few my profile, I only buy Chevy from now one. Ford does really stand for Fix Or Repair Daily.
