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

Dec 012004


  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


When it has snow or slush on roadway, I loose my braking ability and have gone through an intersection because I was unaware of this fault. I also asked the Ford dealership where I purchased this vehicle about this and they didn't have an answer. I also asked my local Ford dealership and they also didn't have an answer. Neither researched this as to my knowledge. This could have disastrous results if traffic was heavy. This is primarily in the winter when snow/slush is on roadways and temperature would be around freezing. It happens with low mileage 10-12 miles at the most.
