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.

2004 Ford Taurus Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 002011

Taurus 3.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles


The space is so tight to work on it to replace the lines and have no intention of getting it fixed, so will just run the model 2/60 :-( and pray for cool weather , While I look for another car ( not a Ford ) too bad, had 3 Fords in a row , 90,95, 04, the 1990 Taurus I had 250K when I sold it and except for a rust problem, the thin film ignition modual, and Tie rods and ends was a great car cant figure this one. I think a Hyundai in my future, 10 year 100k warranty looks good right now, a few months short of 80 so that carries me to 90. Should be my last car.
