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

Jun 202008

Taurus SE 3.0L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 96,000 miles


I had a Ranger with a stick shift with the same motor. Had 159,000 when I sold this truck. The engine in the truck was still a better running motor and used less oil than what this car did when I purchased it. I should have known better than to buy this car with this many miles on it in the first place. When I purchased my truck it had 39,000 miles on it so I had taken proper care of it for a long time. Was assuming that this motor would be okay though but boy was I wrong! At any rate I'm done with Beau Townsend Ford and Fords in general. This car has been a real awakening in just how much trash a manufacturing company can and will produce!!!!
