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 #3

Taurus 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 19,000 miles


1.normal driving, window starting to fog up. Turn on defroster. 2. instantly total loss of visability because of windshield being covered with heavey fog 3.nothing done, I thought I must have had something set wrong in the heater/ defroster buttons. I pulled over tried several different settings and window eventually cleared. (this fog was to the degree that I would not have started on my trip until I cleared the windshield if it had been like that when I got into the vehicle) I have nevr been able to determine when this is going to happen or any way to prevent it. It is however very dangerous. Even after the fog has occured, it is difficult to get it to clear quickly. It can happen when the car is cold or very warmed up.I had to put in a speed but this is truly irrelevant.
