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.

My 2001 Taurus ses has had a hesitation when I engage from park to drive, after a second or two it finally engages into drive. Every dealership I spoke to stated they could not duplicate the concern. I have had it since 2001 and I still have this issue. I feel as if Ford hid something in this manufactured product and now I have a problem that no one can find.

The dealer ship will not help me and blames me for the problems with the car and Ford agrees with them I am getting no help and the car drive horrible for being a 2001. I have had nothing but problems since I purchased this vehicle and I beleive I have been mislead in purchasing this vehicle. No safety defect listed in summary.
