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.

Taurus SES 3.0

  • Automatic transmission
  • 36,000 miles

Fuel gauge is wacko and engine light is on since 36k, now has 90k. Gauge usually reads over full but sometimes in between F & E and below E sometimes. Never again people, never again! This is the last ford I will own. Just read they are bringing the Taurus back in 08 which is the ford 500 with a new name. go figure.
