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

I drive a 2001 Ford Taurus. I have a 7 year old daughter. She is now old enough and weighs enough to no longer need the back of her booster seat. The back is now becoming constrictive as she is growing. However, in a 2001 Taurus, there are no rear head rests. Her head (at the age of 7) is above the seat back. She has absolutely no protection form whip lash and an full sized adult would be even more injured in the even of a crash.
