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.

when i bought the car in 2005, nobody told me about it leaking onto the floor everytime it rained i didn't even have the car a few months my warranty just expired when it rained for like two weeks and i had a huge puddle on the passenger floor. i then realized they already knew about the problem they cut and pulled back the carpet under the dash. its been 6 years and i still haven't figured out how to fix it. its a pain in the ass every time it rains!

problem #3

Sep 122010

Taurus SES 3.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,200 miles

When it rains water comes onto the the passenger side floorboard. It comes down the firewall and out under below the glove box. When I turn on the blower motor the drops become Quicker. There is a Service Bulletin for 2004 taurus's built before 12-15-03 (031506). Mine was built Feb. 04. The S.B. is about water in the blower motor and pass. floorboard. I'm going to a Ford dealership Sept18,2010. The Plot thickens!!!!

problem #2

  • 76,000 miles

This happened to me as well. I looked under the car and noticed pre-cut holes in the bottom of the car, thought maybe I had knocked out a stopper that was in there to prevent this, so I put some duct tape over the holes. That didn't stop anything.

Luckily for me, it was a company car and I turned it in 2 weeks later for a 2008 Taurus. Much better car (so far)!!!!!

(reported on)

Taurus SES 3.0L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 46,500 miles

There is a puddle in my car every time it rains. The front passenger side floor board fills with water.(2" last time) I can tell it is running down the firewall. I put calk around the interior air filter housing that is located under the windshield/wiper arm molding. We'll see if it works.
