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.

Taurus

Ford Taurus 2004. After a day or two of a heavy rain I found a puddle of water infront of the passenger's seat - under the glove compartment. Lifted the rug - just to find the under-padding is greenosh-black and there is a trail of leak. This has been going on for a long time - but obviously -it showed now after a very heavy rain. Found several discussion groups on the internet where _many_ Ford owners complaint about the same thing. Based on the work they had done at service centers - it is an obvious manufacturing error. However, a recall was never issued for this problem. Fixing the problem goes from 150U$ to 400U$- depending on severity, damage, car model and age. This is not an acceptable business approach on the Ford's part (and all of their dealerships who are or should be aware of this problem - but are still quietly selling lemons).
