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.

problem #2

Jan 122012

Taurus ES 3.2lV6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 160,000 miles


It is aggravating trying to put your seat belt on, and it doesn't retract in order to adjust it to the proper fit, when driving the belt at times dangle around you without a tight fit. Now you are driving with the hope you don't get into an accident and fly off due to lagging seat belt.

Other times you wish not to bother putting it on since it doesn't work, but now your worry law enforcement doesn't

ticket you for non belt restraint. your damned if you are and your damned if your not.

It's a pain to have to retract the front seat belts manually. If I don't retract them they get caught in the door.
