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

Oct 092006

Taurus SE V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 75,000 miles


I bought the car in August 2006 from a used lot. The car only had 33,000 miles then. About 2 months after purchase I was having trouble starting the car. Mechanic said it was my battery, so I replaced it. This did not fix the problem. Next, I had to replace the alternator. Next, some kind of sensor. Now its been 2 years and I've had to buy another new battery and alternator. The radio and clock short out all the time. Also the oil light flickers when I put on the brake. I've taken the car to several mechanics and no one can figure out what's wrong. I've sunk at least $1,500 into this car and the problem has not been fixed.
