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

Driver of 2004 Ford Taurus braked hard suddenly. Although as front seat passenger I was belted and sitting properly, I was thrown forward, belt went around neck, choking me, resulted in immediate, headpressure, right arm & leg impaired, failed neuro test for balance. Er & md suggest tia occurred, problems remain, could improve. Belt tested by Ford, said was ok, would accept no liability for problem that occurred. Belt should not have gone around my neck. Have ridden as passenger in that vehicle many times. Believe Ford should be doing more testing, or accept responsibility for failure of belt to restrain me, and go around neck.
