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.

2005 Ford Taurus Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 102008

Taurus 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 87,000 miles


On 2/10/07 the local temperature was in the teens. I entered my 2005 Ford Taurus without incident, put on my safety belt, started it and began to drive. Upon beginning a right turn my drivers side door flew open - the latching mechanism had frozen open. Fortunately there were no injuries or damage to any vehicles, but it could have easily been otherwise. I believe this is a common Ford problem because the very same problem plagued a 1996 Windstar I used to own.
