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 Ford Taurus shut-off blowing heat through the fan and essentially, I do not have any heat in the car. I took to a dealer and they mentioned that water leaked through cowl panel causing failure of the blower motor and / or resistor. I have extended warranty and was told that cowl is not even a part and therefore is not covered and since water leak caused the blower motor to fail, that part also is not covered. I have looked through the tsb's that Ford published, that said that this defect is covered in bumper to bumper warranty. This tells me that Ford acknowledgers that their is problem with the body parts of the cars, but is not agreeing to repair without cost. The dealer quoted me a $763 for parts and labor together to fix the issue. I have noticed a lot of complaints regarding this issue. It is high time that Ford steps up and takes care of consumers.
