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.

Consumer complained about transmission problems. While driving transmission shook since February, 2004. Took vehicle to dealer, and was told that it had a problem, and kept vehicle for 4 days. When consumer received vehicle back she was told that they replaced the computer piston because it was stuck. Also, had problems wit the windows. They made a weird noise. She took the vehicle to the dealer and they just realigned the windows.

Problems with 2001 Ford Taurus brake rotors. The front end vibrated and the brake rotors were replaced numerous times, however the problem still existed. Ford was ordered to repair all repairs but they only turned the rotors. Also the passenger window dragged, the lights dimmed when the radio or heater was on, and also the transmission jerked at times and there was a vibration in the front of the vehicle, the mechanic stated it was due to tire wear.
